Maria Paradisis is passionate about travel. Always planning her next escape, Maria’s website and social media platforms offer a glimpse into her many discoveries and experiences during her ongoing quest to find ‘paradise’ on Earth.
Prior to making travel her focus, Maria worked in the media industry for several years – including roles as personal assistant to the editors of Australian marie claire and Vogue Australia – where she developed a love of photography and an eye for style while thriving in a fast-paced and high-pressure working environment. Maria found working in fashion media the perfect complement to her love of stunning and exotic locations, helping hone her expertise in creative production.
Now as a freelance travel stylist with a wide and varied skill set, Maria specialises in travel for Fashion Week (New York, London, Milan and Paris), photo shoots and contra deals. Her most recent project saw her team up with Vogue Australia to produce an editorial shoot with world-renowned fashion photographer Mario Testino in Sydney.
In addition to location scouting and shoot logistics, Maria also offers her services as a luxury concierge, recently assisting fashion maven and founder of digital company Buro 24/7, Miroslava Duma. Cited as a “force of the fashion industry” by the Financial Times and “a brilliant entrepreneur” by Vogue, Miroslava entrusted Maria with managing a demanding work schedule, planning personal and business appointments, travel and liaising with high profile personalities on her behalf.
Not only is Maria obsessed with travel herself, she wants to help others plan their own adventures. As an experienced Travel Stylist, Maria can assist you in organising and booking your next odyssey.
