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 having a segment on her show “Causa y Efecto.” My job was to talk about fashion and beauty in short segments, and with that “TRENDENCIAS with Carlos Marrero” was born! After a couple of months “Causa y Efecto” stopped airing and that was that – no more Trendencias. I was pretty bummed out because I really loved working on my segment.
But when you love what you do, you find a way to keep it going. The universe will open doors you didn’t even know existed!
And the universe aligned a trifecta, as my dear friend Araceli Bravo introduced me to fashion photographer Flavio Iryoda and we decided to produce TRENDENCIAS on our own. (This time in English rather than Spanish.)
We launched about a month ago, and while it’s been a lot of hard work we’ve had so much fun coming up with fun concepts and booking fantastic guests.
I’m sharing with you here our Oscars red carpet review and our pilot top fashion moments in pop culture.
I hope you guys like them! And please feel free to subscribe to our new Avessa YouTube channel to stay informed of upcoming shows.
I guess the moral of the story is…
If you want to sing – you don’t have to have a stage. If you want to write – you don’t have to have a book deal. If you want to paint – you don’t have to have a gallery… Just do it, do it, do it because you feel good when you are doing it.
The universe responds to inspired action my friends!
