“I am really looking forward to showing with Nolcha Fashion Week for the 3rd year now. The show gets more and more entertaining, always with a successful outcome and an exciting audience.”

Background

Mariana was born in New York, where she pursued her studies at the Fashion Institute of Technology. Being raised in the Hamptons, with an Argentine and European heritage, Mariana’s style was influenced by the glamour and high society people from around the world. With most of her family still residing in Buenos Aires, Argentina, she frequently visits the country and is tainted by its alluring culture and lifestyle. After many years of working for several high end boutiques, showrooms, and styling agencies, Mariana decided to finally launch her own line.

Vision

Mariana’s aspiration is to create something that encourages women to feel sensual and romantic, while at the same time exuding a chic yet classic femininity. Mariana’s designs allow a woman to show her character and express her personality through unique style and elegance.

Signature Style

Fluidity, simplicity, elegance and sensuality that is timeless.

Influence

Love, the beach, travel, music, foreign films, my mood…

Brand philosophy

Mariana Valentina empowers a woman and takes her through the journey of life, with timeless statement pieces that will be with you forever.

Making it happen

After many years of designing dresses only for myself and my friends, it is an incredible feeling to have my designs come to life on the runway.

Fun fact

I recently showed my collection in Chengdu, China during one of their first fashion weeks ever.

What does New York City mean to you?

NYC to me is the center of the world, especially when it comes to FASHION. I am the biggest traveler and I always miss NYC my home. There is nowhere else in the world where you can see such a melting pot of cultures, people and LIFE. Being raised in NYC really gave me the drive and motivation to be who I am today. There is a constant energy around you which is so inspiring to me. I am also a person who works better during the night and NYC is always awake and there is always something exciting going on.
