An avid sportswoman and fashion enthusiast, Founder Maia Norman’s lifestyle and surroundings have heavily influenced the brand ethos and direction of Mother of Pearl.

Norman has always had a strong connection with the art world and each season, Mother of Pearl works with an acclaimed artist.  Previous collaborators include Polly Morgan, Francesco Simeti, Gary Hume, Fred Tomaselli, Fiona Banner, Keith Tyson, Jim Lambie, Matt Collishaw and Carsten Holler.

Since starting as Creative Director in 2010, Amy Powney has streamlined the Mother of Pearl aesthetic using the artists’ work as first hand
research and utilising them to feature cleverly as prints within the collection.

Powney ensures that the collection’s colour-way sits perfectly with the selected artworks and that the silhouettes and detailing stay true to the sports luxe aesthetic with which the Mother of Pearl label is synonymous.

Fusing their signature sportswear inspired
aesthetic with luxury fabrics, Mother of Pearl’s coveted pieces have gained a global cult
following.

Expanding beyond each season’s collection, Mother of Pearl have also produced one off
special collaborations with the likes of
Polly Morgan, SHOWstudio, Garage Magazine, John Currin, Harrods and Other Criteria.
