Marisa started South African ethical clothing label Without in 2003 at age 21, after only a 6 week summer course at London College of Fashion, with no financial capital other than that which she could personally generate from secondary employment. Without aims to create completely comfortable, ethically made garments without compromising design. All garments are made in Cape Town using a minimum of 60% locally produced fabric. Without promotes women's genuine confidence in their own unique bodies and relies on word of mouth and innovative marketing rather than airbrushed "shut up, stop eating and get a face lift" advertising. Without currently supplies sought after South African boutiques India Jane and Blackbeard&Dare as well as creating made to order couture garments for individual clients.
