My name is Marta Teixeira and I am Hilbea’s founder.
I am absolutely thrilled to be writing the very first article of Hilbea’s Magazine. Since it is the very first, it only made sense for it to be about how Hilbea was born and what it plans to deliver. But I wanted it to be as meaningful and personal as possible, so I have decided to personally tell the full story.
It all started when I was working at an advertising agency. I have always been drawn to brands, marketing and entrepreneurship, so I thought it would be the perfect job. However, a few months into the job I have started to slowly realize that, after all, that job did not fulfil me at all. Meanwhile, I was reading self-development and mindset books when I suddenly came across a book that completely changed my life. From that day on, I have started to do everything my intuition and my heart tells me to, no matter what other people think or say. And that made me question how I wanted to spend the rest of my life. What would I get from working at that agency? More important than that, which lives would I positively impact by staying there? And these two questions were enough for me to quit my job and start creating something from my heart that would inspire other people’s hearts.
Hilbea was born from something I liked -fashion- and something I aspired to have – apositive impact in the world. And that is what makes this brand a real brand, because everything it does is out of love. That is why for Hilbea fashion goes beyond style and beautiful clothing. Fashion is about feeling good and doing good – to ourselves, to others and to the planet.
I hope this inspires you to love yourself and by this I mean to question what makes you happy, to fight for what you live in and to always give love to others, no matter what.
Please, feel free to reach out, I would love to hear from you!
