Raised by my grandparents, a self-taught entrepreneur seamstress at an early age of 17 and a local carpenter who drew plans on site, it didn’t take long for me to want to follow in their footsteps. We lived in the coastal region of the Philippines called Cagayan Valley, an arm’s length from the beautiful blue ocean. . Nature’s elements gave me an unexplained calm and glorious sentiment which generously handed to me as a legacy in my heart.
Years passed. My early dream of pursuing fashion design yielded to an architecture degree at the University of Santo Tomas, then working and eventually living in the United States. The music of the birds changed to the roar of the city, and the peace of the garden changed to the adrenaline of construction sites. At the end of the day, I would crave for the Philippines coast – could I return to everlasting summer in my grandparents’ garden? It is out of this longing to be connected that Creations of Paradise was born.
My name is Marilou Urbi, a proud mom of three wonderful kids. I currently reside in Kapolei, Hawaii. Inspired by the warmth of the islands, Creations of Paradise is an online boutique passionate in bringing you that carefree, refreshed tropical, coastal and nautical feeling.
Allow me to create a beautiful collection to reconnect you to nature’s magical moments, and remind you all over again,
The warm embrace of a crisp summer,
The aromatic scent of the full blown flowers,
The breathtaking view of a clear blue sky,
The gentle touch of sand in your toes as you stroll along the beach,
The calm and relaxing sunset in the horizon.
How relaxing nature is, how healing it is, how it connects you!
