Meet Marcela Kalas

The Founder and Chief Designer who paved the way for fashion forward women throughout the Americas.

A native of Colombia and now a passionate New Yorker, Marcela began hand-crafting clothing for family and friends when she was just 14. She soon realized that her hobby had become her life passion. In 2014, her dream became a reality as she founded MOI and vowed to power up today's woman from dusk through dawn.

Launching both titillating Night and Active Day lines, this devoted mother of two sons and wife of over 13 years, was driven to design for Women’s multifaceted lives. Much like herself, women around the world are juggling the responsibilities of motherhood, professionalism and leisure on a daily basis. Marcella's use of flexible fabric, soothing hues and empowering style invites our women to embrace the comfort and sensuality of the MOI vision.

Why I Created MOI

At the time, Marcela sensed that women’s active wear wasn’t being designed from a woman’s perspective. The material felt unwelcoming while the designs suffered from shapelessness.

Masculine trends were dominating the field and women’s voices were being lost in the styling. She knew that this was her time to step in and answer her true calling. She created the MOI active wear and nighttime line with women’s needs in mind. Keeping true to herself, MOI represents Marcela’s passion for design and her crusade to empower women to feel comfortable in any social setting.
