The La Dea Collection

The “La Dea” collection was a result of my passion for Roman art and history. The female deities of this empire piqued my interest & served as the foundation for my design inspiration.

During the Roman era, it was a common belief that goddesses ruled heaven, earth, and the underworld. Each of them possessed a talent corresponding to various aspects of daily life. These gifts represented virtues such as beauty, love, creativity, wisdom, protection, power, strength as well as creation. The Roman goddess was a woman who was adorned and honored. Her traits radiated from her physical beauty, which emanated a superior charm and intelligence. As a result, I wanted to translate these ideas into the personalities of each design. I believed it was important to juxtapose delicate, feminine elements with bolder and stronger silhouettes. My favorite designs in this collection are described in further detail to paint a more intimate portrait of the concept behind each design.

JESS

The Jess sandal, inspired by love & courage, depicts femininity and the qualities of a champion. Its Romanesque silhouette, constructed with dainty, slim braided Nappa leather straps and ankle ties, which drapes the feet. This design detail presents an elegant take on the traditional gladiator style, which is reminiscent of the era of the Colosseum.

ALEXIS

The Alexis, a daring style that draws its inspiration from the Huntress, an adventure seeker archetype. Its bold, enclosed silhouette, creates an exotic look that was crafted from soft Nappa leather as well as snakeskin embossed-leather with an open toe and cuff design. It is balanced by a low heel, which evokes both allure and stability, creating a trans-seasonal shoe to be worn for seasons to come.

MIA RAGAZZA

Mia Ragazza means “my girl" in English. This style is truly close to my heart because it was inspired by my daughter. She is the physical manifestation of the quintessential Italian goddess. Her fair skin, golden hair and crystal blue eyes embody the traits of traditional Northern Italian beauty.

The "La Dea" collection captures what I perceive to be the true essence of Roman mythology. Moreover, it is a compliment to the ideals of the contemporary Tina Maria woman, a woman of today.

A Note From The Creative Director

Tina Maria is the physical manifestation of my creative vision. I see beauty in all things & use my designs to translate that beauty, which is often inspired by the lifestyle of the Tina Maria woman. So, when a design comes to life, it is not only created with an attention to detail, but also quality, honoring all that is valuable & beautiful. 

It was always my dream to build a brand of distinction, one that women felt a deep connection with, but, unfortunately, design school was not in the cards for me. My style muse was the character "Dorothy" from the Wizard of Oz. A character who was a source of comfort for me during my childhood, as I struggled with my own insecurities that were dictated by the standards of beauty. Dorothy's ruby-red shoes were a source of empowerment along her journey down the "yellow brick road" & helped her to find her way "home". These shoes were a symbol for the imperfect eyes of a child, which triggered the calling to launch Tina Maria Shoes. A brand to create, give & share something magical with a world of women, who are courageous, passionate & remain true to their identity as they find their “way” in this world.

As an artist, I honor my journey and being able to share my art is my passion. My commitment is to continually be inspired by the beauty around me and in all things. To be able to translate my  personal interpretation of that beauty through my design work is incredibly fulfilling!

I value and recognize my responsibility as a designer to the Tina Maria woman, beautiful, contemporary shoes. Each style  promises originality, allure and versatility along.  The traditional quality and craftsmanship that Italy is known for is presented in our shoes.
