and over exposure, today’s women are struggling to understand fashion and make it their own in a timeless, iconic way. Through her work as a stylist and Bergdorf Ambassador to elite clientele, her international travels, her heartbreaks, and her daily adventures, Haya explores and defines the ideal modes and manners of today’s modern woman.
Haya Maraka is a writer, influencer and all around luxury expert. Though she may be in any city or country at any given time, Haya's home base is New York City. Her interests veer toward all things nostalgic (old books, old music, old films) and she draws inspiration from her global travels and fashion heritage to offer a fresh take on cultivating personal style.
Haya grew up in her grandmother’s atelier, where she learned about Coco Chanel and the difference between fashion and style. While attending Switzerland’s Brilliantmont boarding school, Haya’s inherent talent for fashion was discovered by a local luxury vintage shop.
Recognizing her natural eye, the shop soon put her in charge of buying and visual merchandising. She was only 17. Her most prized flea market find is a vintage trunk worth $31,000 euros that once belonged to Princess Yasmin, Rita Hayworth's daughter.
After completing a degree in fashion business at London’s prestigious Istituto Marangoni, Haya moved to New York to pursue a career in fashion and to write.
Haya strives for women to search inside in order to choose how they want to look like on the outside. She has a love-hate relationship with social media, and thinks that the right outfit can transform a person's entire essence. She is currently writing her first book and completing a Creative Writing & Literature degree at Harvard.
