Hola! I am Marcela,
My fashion career started when I was just 10 years old, after having rendered a dress my mother bought for me completely unrecognizable. My career took a more formal approach studying fashion design in Guadalajara, México. In 2002 life led me to Portland, Oregon where I have remained since.
Myriam Marcela started in 2014 with my Vintage Renewal line. I would transform vintage pieces into something new and customers would find me at trunk shows, pop-up shops, and other events. Later that year, I won best emerging designer in Portland, Oregon. This event catapulted me into the fashion industry.
Over the last years I have learned, though, that I don’t need to follow a fashion or seasonal calendar. I say now, with pride and confidence, that I make my own rules. I don’t believe the clothing I create should be on sale because it is "past season". My pieces are timeless. Fashion shouldn’t be temporary. I don’t believe in trends either or mass production. We all have our own style and we should invest in pieces which accentuate us and our unique personality.
When I create, my heart and soul is poured into each piece, inside and out, something my customers know to expect from Myriam Marcela.
