Maria Cartagena is the founder of the fashion blog One Style at a Time. Born and raised in New York, she studied fashion design at the Fashion Institute of Technology and from a very young age, she was creative, curious and drawn to the art and design of high-quality, well-crafted clothing. An avid writer, Maria finds in One Style at a Time an outlet for her dual passions and her always-active imagination.

Previously, Maria has been a fashion guest panelist on the Huffington Post Live, appearing alongside fashion designers Cynthia Rowley and Donna Karan and celebrity stylist Brad Goreski. She was also featured in Latina Magazine during New York Fashion Week: Street Style: Latinas at New York Fashion Week. Over the past six seasons, she has become immersed in the New York fashion scene, providing exclusive coverage of fashion shows.

Maria’s aim is to make One Style at a Time a leader among fashion blogs. A place where you can read informational pieces about trending fashion, runway reviews, fashion events, celebrity red carpet highlights, and articles that inspire other creatives to pursue their passions. 

When she is not busy doing write-ups on her computer, Maria enjoys visiting art museums, practicing yoga, meditation and reading books.  She and her spouse, who is a portrait photographer, currently reside in Queens, New York.
