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 …

Met Gala 2018 Red Carpet/ Daily Flash TV

The Met Gala, otherwise known as the OSCARS of fashion, did not disappoint this year. The exhibition—“Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”— had drama aplenty. The event began on the iconic stairs of the Metropolitan Museum of Art where mega stars swept up the red carpet for their grand entrances. Hosted by Rihanna, Amal Clooney and Donatella Versace, I believe that this was one of the best Met Galas to date. I loved seeing how the stars interpreted the theme throughout the night, so I was really excited when Daily Flash TV invited me to be part of their “Fashion Police” …

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 …

Marrero Collection on “Daily Flash TV” Show – Video

I had seen the Daily Flash TV show a few times and loved it because I know Ana Quincoces from a fashion show I was part of during Miami Swim Week. Ana was so nice to me and we really connected that day. I also followed her career throughout The Real Housewives of Miami and Food Network Star, man, this woman can cook! I also started following the handsome Warren Wright, Ana’s Daily Flash co-host, on Instagram – I love his love for cool socks! I commented on a few of his posts and as luck would have it Warren saw …

Carlos Marrero – Style Maker inWESTON Magazine

It’s not every day that you get a phone call from the editor of the magazine asking you if you would do an interview for their style issue. That’s the kind of call you dream about, and that’s exactly the call I got a couple of months ago to be part of the top five style makers for inWESTON magazine. It was an honor to be part of this great group of style makers and the photo shoot was so much fun. The photographer, Ricardo Mejia, did an amazing job for this spread! Style by the Mile By Linda Marx …

Help me pick the first Fall 2018 design – Color way Mandala

I’m working on the 2018 Marrero Collection prints for the Fall scarves, the Pantone forecast colors are just breath-taking. Something different for the usual Fall oranges and browns. Don’t you think?   As you Probably know by now I love Mandalas because of their spiritual meaning.   The word Mandala (pronunciation mon- dah- lah) means “circle”.  A Mandala represents wholeness, a cosmic diagram reminding us of our relation to infinity, extending beyond and within our bodies and minds. Mandalas are circular designs symbolizing the notion that life is never ending. Many mandalas have spiritual significance to an individual or group of individuals. The Hindus …

I love designing new scarves and cover-ups, and I really enjoy seeing a pic of one of my customers wearing one of my pieces. I’m pretty much always creating something… and recently I started feeling like the Marrero Collection logo needed a facelift, a new look! But I need your help! My friends Xavier Maranon & Flavio Iryoda came up with a few ideas and I thought – why not ask your friends for their take on the one they like the most. So why not a contest? The winner (who will be randomly selected) will win a Limited Edition Marrero Collection 100% Silk scarf (a $94 value). 3 steps to enter: Pick …
