The name, first applied to Italian art, is the foundational noun for mannerism, meaning the ‘way’ and ‘manner’ in which you perform; you’re style, your craft, by hand.
Maniera is a womenswear brand designing and creating clothing for the active woman. Each piece is created with purpose and meaning, injecting femininity, grace and a sense of playfulness.
With a fine balance between progressive and timeless design, there is a strong focus on producing authentic pieces, made from quality fabrication and craftsmanship.
Design and manufacture is based in Sydney, and coincides with the core values of the brand, which is to produce garments locally of high quality. Each item is made in limited runs of 15-40 pieces, sold online and in stores. Therefore each owner of a Maniera piece has an item not worn by many, no waste and no mass production.
Designer and Founder Olga Moore, launched Maniera under the brands first identity ‘Naked Official’, designing all pieces around a specific concept that evolves from season to season. Throughout each collection, proportion is the ultimate element, as it defines how the body appears on the outside and keeps a woman body in line.
Maniera is proudly Australian.
