how maelle was established

the Expertise from industry insiders

the place to be profitable, expand and scale your business

Maelle was established in 2020, from the need that the founders have experienced in over 10 years of activity in the fashion industry: to have a precise path to follow to be successful in the fashion business.

Leda Di Marti, Elisa Bonandini and Martina Di Pasquale decided to collect all their knowlodge in Maelle, because fashion brands ready for commercial expansion (2-4 years, B2B or B2C) had:

 

  • no proven guidelines to follow at their peace, 
  • no trusted team of experts to ask for advice 
  • no platforms that offer to be easily incubated and then invested by VCs, Angels or relevant Fashion Groups. 

When brands join PR Offices or Commercial Showrooms, they don’t know that they will not receive any 1:1 assistance for their brand or have full control over the contacts they generate with their art.

Maelle do collaborate with PR Officies and Commercial Showrooms to ensure high chances of success.

Maelle responds to the request of a place in which professionalism is a priority, in order for the brand to reach the ultimate goal of expanding successfully abroad within 5 consecutive years.
