T-shirts that will elevate your look / Marrero Collection

I am so excited to introduce my new line of all-over print T-shirts, a capsule collection line inspired by some of the shows from Paris, Milan, and New York that is perfect for this summer! Designers like Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Moschino and others showcased runway looks full of word prints, flowers and cartoons… and I love them! A lot of designers we’re also showing similar looks for male and female on the same catwalk, so I decided to do that as well. My line has a little bit for everyone, from bright colors, to a cool black and white …

New scarf designs by The Marrero Collection

As a designer, coming up with a new collection can be exciting and scary at the same time.  You want to follow your style, but you also want your pieces to be liked (and ultimately purchased). I begin by looking at the Pantone color fashion forecast and then sketching different designs, some geometrics, and then some more organic shapes. For this season I decided to design 3 versions of each design and have my followers vote on their favorites. So in a way WE designed the new Marrero Collection. I had so much fun hearing from you and am excited to show you the results. …

Aventura Fashion Spread Features Marrero Collection Scarf

When a stylist picks one of your pieces to be featured in a fashion spread for a magazine, it’s not only an honor, but it’s a validation of your work. You never know how your garment is going to actually appear, or be featured in the final cut.  With my line of fashion scarves, they sometimes get lost in the photo as a simple accessory.  However, when your product is featured as the opening spread for the issue, and is also included in the table of contents… it really is an incredible endorsement! Gio Alma is one of the best …

TRENDENCIAS – Do what makes your heart sing…

My philosophy in life has always been to do what makes your heart sing. I have always followed my passion for drawing and other artistic pursuits, even though it was not considered a “moneymaking” move. A couple of years ago I was introduced to TV interviews for my line, and as a fashion commentator. It was on one of those shows that I met my friend Carina Silva. We were part of a panel of experts talking about the inauguration of Donald Trump and we had an instant connection. A couple of weeks later Carina asked me if I was interested in …

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.
