GET TO KNOW MAHRYSKA AND THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE WEBSITE

Mahryska is a curated visual online diary created by Mariyah Gaspacho that has embraced a wide readership worldwide and has produced numerous partnerships with international brands throughout the years. Staying true to both Mahryska’s passion for personal style and photography, she continues to share her vision with every single image.

MAHRYSKA (Ma-rish-kah) is russian for Maria and back in 2000, a work colleague (who was from Russia) used to call me this way. The name originally spelled Mariska was a definite fit for me. Considering my name is one of the most common names out there, I found this particular version of it unique and I honestly just could not get it out of my head. So after doing a little research and twisting the spelling to make it my own, I bought the domain, got the emails sorted, and never looked back.
