Born and brought up in the small town of Beeville, Texas, fashion designer Urbana Chappa wanted nothing more than to showcase the uniqueness of her style and personality to the world. Her apparel line Maison de Urbana was a direct result of her desire to empower women to voice their individuality in style. A multi-cultural person of Persian, Black and Spanish parentage, Urbana is geared toward bringing the richness of her cultures in all of her designs for Maison de Urbana.
Urbana graduated from Texas A & M and ventured toward Los Angeles with dreams of becoming a singer. She toured with Rah Digga as a back-up vocalist, which also gave her the opportunity to dabble in costume designing. Urbana has styled numerous artists such as Diane Warren, Natasha Henstridge and Philip Lawrence just to name a few. She learned early in her career that people are picky with their style, and therefore Maison de Urbana creates styles that adhere to each client’s individuality.
A mother of two adorable children, Urbana is currently on hiatus from pursuing a degree at FIDM. Her latest collection from Maison de Urbana will be on the runway for the New York Fashion week in February 2013.
