Morúa Designs:

Here you will find corsetry that is bold, flattering and luxurious. Perfectly fitted gowns and coats that showcase individual style. Dainty hand stitched hats. Heirloom pieces made with lots of love.

The name Morúa comes from my mother, my Costa Rican childhood surname and my grandfather’s old general store.

I have moved across continents a few times. I have recently relocated from London, UK to Chicago, IL. I ship internationally and offer a remote fitting service with the use of mock-ups and photos or skype fittings.

Design Philosophy:

When I design I take historic silhouettes and influences and reinvent them for modern wear. I am fascinated by the evolution of fashion and I hope not to re-create what has already been done but to learn from the artisans of the past how to take fashion further into the future.

Historical influences mixed with architectural forms often lead me to create structural garments, with an emphasis on strong lines and geometric design. Many of my garments have their own infrastructure, by means of corselets, boning, and interlinings to form the framework of the garment. I take these elements, the legacy of hundreds of years of women’s fashion, and utilize them in fashion that women can wear comfortably today.
