Who is Miss Marble?
Since I can remember myself I have designed things. My earliest memories are with my grandmother. She designed handbags, traveled to London and used to bring incredible stuff: dresses, accessories... she was the most fashionable woman i have ever met (she was also an actress). She taught me to make necklaces, we used to spend whole afternoons with nylon thread making necklaces with the leftover pieces from her handbags, I then used them to dress up or gifted them to my mom. As I grew, I slowly found my style, I researched and worked with different materials making different original things that nobody was wearing. People started asking me where I bought what i was wearing and that's how it all started. 

I always make things that reflect my mood, my way of being, my thoughts... At the moment I'm very inspired by the dreamy worlds of some stories like Alice in Wonderland (one of my favorites books) or The WIzard of Oz. I really like the Victorian aesthetic of Alice and I'm reproducing many of the symbols like the tea pots, keys, messages... I firmly believe that fashion needs to suggest different things, not only show prettiness, and that's what i try to make. 

oooh... well... making what i like most, desihn pretty little things in a beautiful studio with lots f space only or myself, hahaha.

I'm not sure I'm the best person to give advice, I think the most important is not to get stuck, always keep learning, keep your eyes open because you never know where the next inspiration might come from. And most importantly, always believe in what one does, if you are not completely sure people will notice. 

Miss Marble, gracias! You are divina!! xo
