Nuova Vita Brings New Life to Fashion

It started with a simple idea — that fashion should be stylish, comfortable, and above all, versatile. It was this idea that inspired the young designer, Francesca Maestrales to create her own clothing line.

Maestrales always dreamed of becoming a fashion designer, yet it wasn’t until she recently relocated to Boca Raton when she was able to turn this dream into a reality. Appropriately called Nuova Vita (Italian for “New Life”), her collection was literally the start of her new life as a designer.

Nuova Vita features an array of chic, convertible dresses, skirts, tops, jumpers, and wraps, all of which combine fashion with function. Each brilliantly constructed piece allows you to add your own personal flair to your outfit with several uniquely different ways to be worn. (There are more than 12 ways wear the line’s popular Mary Lynn Maxi Dress.) And there’s even a page on the company’s website that allows you to design your own dress, a destination that is especially popular for women who have wanted to create custom bridesmaid gowns.

Now just in time for summer, Maestrales has created the new convertible and reversible Nuova Vita swimwear collection. Each one or two-piece style can be worn at least five different ways. Feeling shy? Turn that bikini bottom into a cute skirt. Feeling sexy? Convert that wide-strap halter into a subtly revealing crisscrossed top.

Nuova Vita swimsuits are perfect for travel — perhaps for the annual summer trip to St. Tropez? Simply pack one and you’ll have at least five days of swimwear. And even better, it’ll leave more room in your suitcase to pack that extra pair of Louboutins.

The entire Nuova Vita collection is available online at
