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 …

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’ 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 …
