Zero + Maria Cornejo Spring Summer 2024 Lookbook

Zero + Maria Cornejo Spring Summer 2024 collection lookbook presented at New York Fashion Week SS24 (September 12, 2023).

To mark this significant milestone, Maria Cornejo took the initiative to self-publish a book titled "Back to Zero." This book offers a unique glimpse into her enduring influence and her designs that stand the test of time. Within its pages, you'll find a delightful array of friends and admirers, including renowned figures like Chloë Sevigny, donning her creations and sharing their heartfelt experiences. Recently, a signing party at Dashwood provided the perfect occasion for fashion enthusiasts to not only obtain a copy but also raise a toast to her remarkable 25-year journey in the industry.

Cornejo's approach to fashion distinguishes her from the typical runway extravaganzas. She refuses to adhere to the conventional eight-to-twelve-minute fashion show schedule or yield to the ceaseless pursuit of fleeting trends. Instead, her designs seamlessly harmonize with the cadence of everyday life. This steadfast commitment to creating enduring pieces has cultivated a dedicated following of customers who appreciate the timeless quality of her creations.

The Spring Summer 2024 collection by Maria Cornejo is a testament to her intuitive design philosophy. It mirrors her personal inclination towards a more polished and refined sensibility. Nestled in the heart of NoHo, amid upscale fitness centers and cycling studios, Cornejo couldn't help but notice the omnipresence of athleisure attire like jog bras and leggings. Her response to this trend is nothing short of revelatory—a collection that maintains comfort without sacrificing elegance.

However, Cornejo's repertoire doesn't feature conventional tailored suits. Instead, it introduces groundbreaking pieces like cropped bombers and dropped pocket pants, expertly crafted from eco-denim in a striking tan hue. Another standout is the cropped bomber, boasting a bold leopard jacquard fabric, perfectly complemented by a narrow pencil skirt made from stretch fabric. What sets Cornejo apart is her unwavering commitment to transparency. She readily shares the origin, composition, and care instructions for all her textiles, underscoring her dedication to sourcing responsible materials. Notably, the luxurious floral fil coupé jacquard pieces, particularly captivating in the vibrant green colorway, are woven from GOTS-certified organic cotton yarn.

One remarkable revelation about Cornejo's collections lies in the surprising popularity of her long evening dresses. Despite her edgy and artistic sensibility, her gowns defy the conventions of typical red carpet attire. Instead of relying on internal corseting, Cornejo employs bias-cutting and draping techniques to craft sinuous and flattering lines. A standout piece deserving special mention is the liquid silver shiny stripe dress, an astonishing creation that can be machine washed, thanks to its innovative cupro blend.
