Mary Bashay has two obsessions, texture and colour. Sometimes she has to take things apart to satisfy these obsessions. The creativity is how they are put back together. She uses fabric and leather that are considered flawed and unusable by their factories. From something that is rejected, she sees an opportunity in the challenges such reincarnation entails.

Mary is from the United States, but is based in Paris, France. She is pursuing a masters degree in Fashion Design at the International Fashion Academy in Paris.
