Founder's story

Founded in 2017 by twin sisters Nontsikelelo and Sethembile Mnyayiza, Maria and Regina was born from their personal struggle to find clothing that represented the empowered plus size woman. The sisters are qualified chartered accountants but have always known they wanted to make a bigger impact in the world.

While preparing for their first international holiday in 2016 and struggling to find fashion forward plus size clothes, they recognised a gap in the market for an inclusive fashion forward brand in South Africa and a couple of months later Maria and Regina was born.

The sisters aim to create more than just a fashion brand but a purpose driven brand that serves the empowered woman by providing tools and resources so that she shows up for life, work and travel with confidence and she takes up space.
