Designers, Marco Marrero and María Díaz began their professional careers in 1990, opening a design and dressmaking workshop in Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife, and in 1998 the company Marco & María became part of the Tenerife Moda group, a designer’s promotional organism which enabled them to make their first appearance on national catwalks. Just one year later they were presenting their designs at Cibeles, and in the year 2000 they went international by presenting their bridal collection at the Paris Show.
Marco & María’s designs embrace two styles, Bride and Party which stand out for their exclusive embossing like taffetas, tulles, silks…Their most recent proposal for 2016 has brought to its creators the difficult task of bringing to current lines inspiration from the mid-nineteenth century, which is evident in their creations, but only shown in short strokes within them. As a hallmark of the firm, Marco & Maria link a current period with inputs from the past. The interiors of the gowns come to light, and the petticoats, that are normally hidden, are intuited between sheer fabrics.
