MAIA MODA is effortless style for the modern nursing mother. We want moms to feel empowered to breastfeed wherever and whenever they want. Breastfeeding is a wonderful, but sometimes challenging journey. Let’s embrace that journey and look and feel great doing it ;)
Every item is made with care and follows our company principles.
Our name has a long motherly history. In Greek culture, MAIA represents the "nursing mother". MODA translates to style in Italian. MAIA MODA is on a mission to celebrate breastfeeding and use our clothes to highlight its beauty.
MAIA MODA clothes are made in the USA supporting our local economy. The company is based in New York.
Veronica Horner came up with the idea of MAIA MODA after the birth of her son Henry in 2016. While breastfeeding she struggled to find clothes that didn’t look like lounge-ware and felt like nursing clothes screamed mom coming! While pregnant she was able to find some cute pieces, so she couldn’t believe that style fell off a cliff once her son was born. Veronica partnered with her longtime friend and talented designer Gerta Frasheri to design clothes which addressed this need. Prior to MAIA MODA Veronica worked for nine years as a management consultant for fortune 500 companies across the globe.
Gerta Frasheri has been working in the fashion industry for over 10 years. Her experience includes designing for esteemed fashion houses such as J. Mendel, Ralph Lauren, Isaac Mizrahi and J. Crew. She brings her high-end design aesthetic, focusing on refined fabrics, prints and silhouettes, to nursing mothers who don’t believe they should have to choose function over style. Her emphasis on elegant proportions and ingenious cuts, combined with her selective eye for elevated patterns, is what truly sets MAIA MODA apart.
