Marilia message

Message from PresidentContribute to the happiness of our customers and community.Since the foundation of the company in 1968, we at Marilia inc. have engaged in the sale of Prêt-à-Porter, Ready-to-wear clothes for women, with a focus on the happiness of not only our clients and associates, but also our community.

I deeply appreciate that our company has succeeded due to the love and guidance of our clients and associates. I believe that the purpose of fashion is not only to show the external beauty of the wearer but to also show a sense of her inner life. We have pursued the true satisfaction and happiness of each client by listening to her, and offered suggestions on her lifestyle, sometimes beyond clothes. 

In the fashion world, wearing clothes of high quality is a joy. Our mission is to set the stage for our clients where she can feel this joy through a close interaction with us.

Here is a testimonial from our longtime client;

“I have always had Marilia’s clothes in every turning point in my life’s journey. They have left me with sparkling memories all the time. The history of Marilia is mine as well.  Marilia is always along with me in my life.”

I am deeply moved and would like to thank her.

Management that ensure fair, equitable business practises and share prosperity with all our business partners

We have provided our sales staff with a comfortable storefront to work at, set the best stage for our customers, and sincerely committed to the relationship of mutual trust with our suppliers through fair initiatives.

Thorough staff training for enhancing human strength

We conduct employee training to ensure that every staff member can contribute as a fashion advisor and feels fulfilled professionally and privately.

Because Prêt-à-Porter enables us to express the core values of forward-looking women, I believe developing the skills as fashion advisors is a pursuit that provides a valuable service.

I really hope that each employee will develop their own personality to the full extent and shine brightly.


We are aiming to build an attractive corporation with an individuality that shines through even if it is a small organization.

In these unprecedented conditions due to the pandemic, I would like to express my deep appreciation from the bottom of my heart to all the people who support Marilia.  I have determined that I will make my best effort to respond to your expectations.
