Maria Cornejo established her atelier in 1998, and in the nineteen years since her label has grown a devoted following of fashion icons including First Lady Michelle Obama. A champion of women in the fashion industry and beyond, Cornejo is guided by the idea of creating wearable luxury for real women. Her designs are timeless and accessible, using only the highest-quality fabrics to make minimalist, modern, understated luxury and effortless elegance. This is an intimate portrait of Cornejo s processes and inspirations that combines a mix of Polaroids, sketches, runway shots, and photographs created especially for this book by her fashion-photographer husband, Mark Borthwick, including images of Tilda Swinton, Cindy Sherman, and many other fashion muses. This much-anticipated volume will be a must-have for lovers of fashion, culture, and personal style alike.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In other news, the designer has a book coming out in October, a retrospective with Rizzoli spanning her 20 years of work. "I focus a lot on the early years, which is not documented that much anywhere," she said. "Also because the early years informed my design process and that's not online, so it felt important to have that set in stone somewhere."
--The Hollywood Reporter

"A beautiful retrospective on the Chilean designer, who has dressed such fashion VIPs as former First Lady Michelle Obama and Tilda Swinton"
--In Style

"If you want to really want to know what the book is about then you must be interested in knowing this designer's fundamentals: "'Let the fabric dictate the drape, let the fabric dictate the shape, no shoulder seam, no side seams, no darts, no collars, seam displacement, off kilter, straight line against curve, line displacement and no buttons.' "
--New York Journal of Books

"The tome, which features photography by Cornejo's husband, Mark Borthwick, has a sketch-and-scrapbook feel: Myriad drawings--some as basic as shapes overwritten with the words tube, circle, and triangle--are printed next to images of two decades' worth of Cornejo's cerebrally pragmatic clothes. "
