Marina Makaron uses the finest textiles to pull together her designs consisting of culture, folklore and, fantasy. She achieves this work seamlessly incorporating elegance, humor, and art.
The Russian-born designer spent her life living, working and studying in diverse metropolises ranging from Moscow and London, to Paris and Philadelphia. Makaron’s background lies in International Business, in which she earned her degree at the age of 20 at Drexel University. Upon graduation, she pursued careers as a researcher and analyst in financial, publishing and legal institutions until she decided to further her studies at the London School of Economics and later at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow, Russia. It was not until the conclusion of her second study that her creative calling kicked in and her passion for design took over. With a nod to her Eastern-European roots, Makaron began experimenting with basic Russian imagery and folklore depictions. Endless nights of generating business and investment plans paid off in the end with the creation of her first line, Marina Makaron Moscow.
