When I first saw Carlos’s work I fell in love. I’ve learned how to appreciate the true value of fashion illustration. It’s an art and talent that I just wasn’t born with but wish I did. I can’t draw to save my life! But the importance of it all is the result of what you and I wear.
Carlos recently launched a new collection called The Marrero which is a compilation of alluring statement pieces designed for the fashionista looking for unique fashion items without the couture price tag. The line features chic and stylish handbags and accessories, which allow women to take part in Marrero’s glamorous and whimsical vision of fashion and femininity.
“The modern consumer is looking for ways to express her individual taste and stand out from the crowd.” Says Marrero.
For years Carlos has designed, sketched and unveiled the most trendsetting looks in the industry. Making his iconic celebrity fashion illustrations the most requested by some of the top fashion magazines like Glamour, Cosmopolitan and Vogue. “When I received my first featured on Cosmopolitan I literally broke down into tears. Then it was Vogue, then Glamour, Instyle and Entertainment Weekly, it just doesn’t get old!”
But what I’m most proud of is his two-page spread feature in Latina Magazine. It’s one of my dreams to be featured in Latina Magazine, so I can only imagine his excitement when he opened up the magazine and saw his work.
I love Marrero’s inspiration of the 1940’s and 50’s. The classic voluptuous skirts and gloves with beautiful hats and shoes, Marrero illustrates all of that in his current designs. The elegance of the era is timeless and you can defiantly see it in Carlos’s work.
“My greatest motivation is to keep proving to myself and to the world that there is a relevance for fashion illustration and fashion art.”-CM
