Russian-born designer Marina Makaron 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 dissertation 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. Combining her knowledge of the International marketplace with a penchant for fashion-forward design and a fondness for her culture’s traditions, it was not long before Makaron created a silk collection unlike any other— fusing within its dappled patterns the nostalgia of times past, the style sensibilities of the present and the global attitudes of the future. Endless nights of generating business and investment plans paid off in the end with the creation of her first line, marina makaron moscow.
