Maria Cartagena

In 2011, Maria Cartagena created the blog One Style at a Time. Born and raised in New York, she studied fashion design and also fashion buying and merchandising at the Fashion Institute of Technology. From a very young age, she was creative, curious and drawn to the art and design of high-quality, well-crafted clothing. She has always been an avid writer and creating a blog was something that has brought together her passion for the written word and the arts.

Earlier in 2017, Maria decided to take the platform of her blog in a new direction which she now calls ‘Beyond the Fashion’. Seeking to inspire others in their soul-searching creative journey she now includes subjects such as self-development, mind, body and spirit, wellness and discovering new artistic talent.
