First for Women magazine features my hair and beauty illustrations

I graduated from the Art Institute in Chicago where I studied fashion and beauty illustration. My work has been featured in an array of magazines – VOGUE, In Style, Glamour, and more. However, with the birth of the internet the market for illustrations took a dive – magazines went under, publishing went online, and a lot of illustration work just vanished. Art directors could now buy “stock art “ for a fraction of what we were getting paid. So I had to adapt, and eventually I came up with another outlet for my skills: The Marrero Collection. But in the …

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 …

Carlos’ favorite thing for 2015 – “Shireen’s Favorite Things”

CarlosFavorite-Blog

2015 was a great year! My Marrero Collection line was featured in many publications and TV spots. I met a lot of interesting and exciting people. One of my favorite TV appearances was definitely the segment on Channel 7’s Deco Drive “Shireen’s Favorite Things”. I remember getting the call from Shireen while I was doing my meditation walk. I was shocked to get the call to be featured on a entertainment show that I have watched for many years. I was very nervious at first on the day of the shoot, but Shireen made the experience a dream come true. Isn’t it …

Heidi Klum as Jessica Rabbit 4 Halloween (her transformation video)

Heidi-Klum-Jessica-Rabbit

As a fashion illustrator, Jessica Rabbit was/is a huge inspiration on my work. Her proportions and the “Bob Mackie-Like” gown on the animated diva were sensational. As a Fashion designer, Project Runway is another big influence, to this day one of my favorite shows. So magic happens when you marry the two, Heidi Klum (wearing a dress made by Project Runway’s Christian Siriano) & the iconic Jessica Rabbit. Hands down and amazing, incredible transformation. I nominate Klum “Drag Race Royalty” for her Lip-Syncing. What do you think of the transformation?
