MARIJA PINJUH is a fashion brand based in Zagreb, Croatia. It was founded in 2011 by the designer Marija Pinjuh. Born and raised into the family of eyewear manufactures in Zagreb, Croatia, Marija was exposed to the attention to detail and developed a sense for aesthetics at an early age. She graduated from a school for interior design and set out to master architecture and engineering at the University of Zagreb. When Marija came to Milan, she enrolled a fashion design program at Istituto Marangoni. During that time, she became infatuated with fur and leather, which led her to spend most of her time in the 4th year of the program at Pierangela Meregalli's artisanal fur studio.

After graduating with highest honors, Marija moved to Paris, France and enriched her fashion experience by working in the studios of Moon Young Hee and Maison Martin Margiela. In 2010, Marija started as a freelance designer while continuing her education in fashion. During this time, she took a course of haute couture pattern making at Chambre Syndicale in order to add more value to her work and collections. All this led to the launch of her first women's collection in 2012.

Today, Marija is constantly on the move between Paris, Milan, and Zagreb, and she is engaged in every process of her collections – the design, collection development, and fabric selection. Her work is continuously inspired by travels around the world, different cultures, and architerctural influences. Flirting with haute couture and pret-a-porter clothing, Marija's collections are a glimpse of the future inspired by the past, designed for a sophisticated woman who is fierce and wants to be remembered.
