We employ the minimal geometric deformation approach to gravitational decoupling (MGD-decoupling) in order to generate an exact anisotropic and non-uniform version of the ultracompact Schwarzschild star, or ‘gravastar’, proposed by Mazur and Mottola. This new system represents an ultracompact configuration of radius whose interior metric can be matched smoothly to a conformally deformed Schwarzschild exterior. Remarkably, the model satisfies some of the basic requirements to describe a physically acceptable stellar model, such as a positive density everywhere and decreasing monotonously from the centre, as well as a non-uniform and monotonic pressure.
