Kia Ora, my name is Mariana. I am the proud owner and director of Waeve Apparel. A wahine Māori from Rotorua, I have grown up with a lot of whanau, sport, culture and education. This has provided me with a foundation that underpins the purpose of why I created this brand. I have always been driven and committed to keeping my physical health a priority through sports, regular exercise and nutritious (yummy) kai. At the beginning of 2020 I made the decision to create this brand in hopes of inspiring others to make their health a priority as well. Activewear is a vehicle of influence, to enhance your athletic ability, strength and performance.
When you wear Waeve, I want you to think to yourself - "get your a** in that gym and work. Work your a** off like your life depends on it, because it does." Health is one of, if not, the most important aspect of your life you could invest your time into. I believe it is the foundation of which your life is built upon.
My own experiences have lead me to wanting to promote and encourage the importance of physical exercise and overall physical well-being. This is one of the many ways I hope to achieve this.
