Marella, fashion designer by origin and writer by adoption.
In her adolescence she endured classical studies, which lit her passion for literature, reading, and writing, complementing the artistic skills which she nurtured ever since she was a child, particularly in the areas of drawing and garment design.
This blend of experiences led her to undergo college studies in Design & Fashion Technologies, which she graduated in 2015, and to continue in the following years by pursuing a higher level of studies at Central Saint Martins school in London, UK, while in parallel nurturing her continuous learning desire through several focused courses.
Throughout her studies, Marella achieved numerous fashion Awards and Recognitions and, in parallel to that, she also took her first steps in the professional world, by working at a number of renowned Italian brands such as Krizia e Marni, amongst the others.
Her passion for writing took an unexpected turn into a career through a fortuitous meeting with an emeritus Professor and anthropologist of the Open University, who gave her the opportunity to explore aspects related to the creative process.
This meeting opened the doors for Marella to deepen her involvement in socio-anthropological issues, such as women’s condition, individual sexuality, the contradiction od our contemporary era, in which she is particularly engaged in, both online and physically.
In 2019, she finally started her first book about fashion and creative processes “ From blank canvas to garment”, published in May 2019 by Balestier press, London, that enables her to perfectly blend her to passion into a whole story.
Born in Bari, on the south-East coast of Italy, she spent part of her early years across different Italian cities and finally moved to Central London in 2016, where she is currently based, despite her love for travel which keeps carrying her around the globe.
