Margarita Saplala (born October 17, 1977) is a New York fashion designer and the head designer of her own clothing line. Born in Manila, Philippines, Saplala moved to Chicago with her family at the age of two. Having realized a love for drawing and painting at an early age, she decided to pursue a creative career. She enrolled in her high school's art classes and continued her studies at School of the Art Institute of Chicago. There, she completed a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art, majoring in fashion design.
Saplala moved to New York and started as a freelance designer for larger corporations. After designing for Banana Republic, Gap, Guess and Halston Coats, she decided to pursue her own clothing line in 2006.
Upon launching her eponymous line, Saplala started with separates. She began working with mixed media such as prints and embroidery to create a collection of unique tee shirts and jersey dresses. In 2008, the line grew to include a wider selection of dresses in silk, with a sharper focus on her original prints. She sold her pieces to select boutiques in the U.S. as well as Barney's Co-op.
Saplala is known for her playful, yet uncomplicated prints and designs pieces for contemporary womenswear. She is currently working on her line and resides in Brooklyn
