Mr. Sydney Maria is native from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where at an early age he danced as a "destaque" (main float reveler) at "Unidos da Taquara" Samba School using a lavishing white Indian feathered costume. This formative experience set him on a path towards the aspiration of dancing and designing unique feathered costumes for men and woman. As he matured, Sydney Maria graduated from a renowned 80's modeling school in Rio called Socila; home to many Brazilian models of that time. With this experience he refined his skills and started to perform in the best venues and clubs of Rio. He was invited then to work with famous Brazilian fashion designer Maria Tereza, owner of the "must" shop at the time called "Twiggy Boutique", designing woman's fashion in silk and many other exotic fabrics. From there he moved to a prestigious studio of Brazilian designers Luiz Fernando and Marco Antonio, icons of Rio fashion back then, dressing top models of the time like Luiza Brunet, Monique Evans and Josi Campos.
In the 90's Sydney Maria moved to the U.S where he continued to make and create original and stunning stage costume collections which are worn by performers and dancers all over the world. His work has been featured on the runways of New York, Paris, Los Angeles, Boston. Across the web, media, news and print, the name Sydney Maria is a reference of luxury and brilliant creations.
In addition to his creative costume making abilities, Sydney Maria is a choreographer, model, actor and dancer. He has produced many stage shows, samba shows and festivals in TV and in person. His awards included the Asian US Business Summit and Expo Special Merit Award and the San Francisco Gay Pride Absolutely Outrageous Entry Award.
When one sees his luxurious costume in a dancer, immediately you can tell it's a "Sydney Maria" creation!
