WBM/AUTR – Fashion – Volume 1 – February 2013 

It would appear that style is the by-product of fashion, as choice enables the individual to select this and pick that for no reason other than what’s trending at any given time. A closer examination would suggest that anything picked has already been predefined for us at no fault of our own. On the other hand, suppose we could change the way we fashion our lives. What if we could uniquely accent our individuality based on a purposeful way of choosing? What if that choice could redefine your style? For Aries, creator of MacraMade™, fashion is now something you can style, and choice never looked so good.

What does it mean to be MacraMade™?

To be MacraMade™ means to be different; to believe that fashion can go further than just how you look, but also help to inspire and change your life. There are millions of designers worldwide, but it shouldn’t be all about the look. Look for inspiration and purpose behind the pieces you wear, and that will give you more of a respect for the pieces and brands you chose to support. That’s what MacraMade™ is all about.

How did your brand get its start?

I actually began learning how to make jewelry when I was 13 because I always had a thing for jewelry, but specifically bracelets. After taking a break from jewelry for a few years, I decided to try my hand with the macramé style in 2011. I made a number of pieces that I would wear out to events and things, and people would take notice, and would ask if I could make some pieces for them. Throughout 2011, I had received so many requests, even from a few notable celebrities like Big Tigger and Robin Thicke, that I decided in March of 2012 it was time to Brand myself and take things to another level. From that day, I’ve never looked back and its been an amazing journey so far. It’s a blessing to say the least.
