The idea of easy design that lasts resurfaced in Mana’s personal life came from growing up with a relative with hidden disability and understanding: the importance of feeling the need to be included. Later while recovering from a shoulder injury, she realized how difficult it was to put clothes on every morning, and thought of the millions of people that go through something similar every day.
After graduating from University of Arts of London in Fashion Design Management, Mana learned to reshape boundaries between fashion and function after specializing in Universal Design. She realized her work could have a positive health impact on people and on the planet. Introducing simple but thoughtful ideas in fashion design to make life easier for all is her continuous goal.
