The Story of Michaela V
I was born and raised in Slovakia, dreaming of being a part of the fashion industry since I was a young girl. I looked up to designers and watched runway shows constantly, but I couldn’t afford anything from that world. To my surprise, I was discovered by a modeling agent when I was 16. Soon after, I started modeling and working in countries I knew nothing about. I was learning so many different cultures and was inspired by everyone I met, every city, building, and experience I was having… not to mention the incredible friends I’ve made along the way. After some time in the fashion industry, I started getting hired by well established designers. I watched their craft closely, helping me realize my true passion. I realized I want to execute my own creative vision, not just help other designers’ come true. Through modeling, I was able to learn about the design process from inside out.
My dream was to create something unique, something that blends the 2 worlds of style and quality, all while being affordable.
After long hours of extensive research, trips to Italy, Mexico, and Hong Kong to meet with manufacturers and leather suppliers, I found my partners who are the best in their business. Together, we created Michaela V.
My goal is to make you feel confident, comfortable and as beautiful as you are at your core when you put your Michaela V shoes on.
As Marylin Monroe once said:
I’m so excited to have you with me on this journey.
