About Carlos Marrero

ABOUT CARLOS MARRERO: Carlos Marrero knew he wanted to draw ever since he was a small boy watching the opening credits of Bewitched and I Dream of Genie with his grandmother after school. The bright colors and retro style that captured his imagination as a child have left their mark on his artwork ever since. He also draws inspiration from the glamour of the ‘40s and ‘50s: beautiful women with wasp-thin waists, dressed with the influence of the New Look of Christian Dior, with elaborate hairstyles, voluptuous gowns and chic accessories. Marrero’s illustrations appear in magazines and newspapers including Vogue, …

So I decided to start with the basics, an introduction… My name is Carlos Marrero, illustrator and entrepreneur at heart. I obviously love fashion, music & the arts, but also like to learn and share inspirational thoughts …

Drawn to Fashion

I was invited by Gallery 101 here in South Florida to have an exhibition of my work. Wondering how I could bring a Motives Cosmetics presence to the event, I came up with the idea of bringing my work to life. I partnered with Sira D’Pion, a fabulous designer from the Miami area who I had known since teaching at the Art Institute, and the results were amazing. Our event featured not only a gallery exhibition of my illustrations of D’Pion’s work, but we made it a fully interactive experience having live models showing the dresses in person – after …

MOTIVES for La La POP UP!

My team and I went to work identifying a great (and cute!) venue to host our Motives for La La Pop-Up Shop. One of my partners, Elyse Briefman, had been prospecting a beautiful boutique in Cooper City, Fla., called Beso Real. After explaining the concept to the owners, they were very excited to host and helped come up with some great ideas, like beautiful chocolates and candy bars, hors d’oeuvres, and an amazing selection of wines. The day of the event, my team did mini-makeovers on some of our guests, and everyone had a ball. Beso Real’s owners were so …
