Craftsmanship

Her signature look is developed by "old school" methods for a high tier customer base.


Computer aids are rarely relied upon in the initial development of her designs as she continues to use paint and ink to create her conceptual drawings. She learned this from her father's lead, as he was a technically trained aerial cartographer before computers were commonly used.


Skilled craftsmen manually silk screen her designs in mass production while each seamstress continues to sew her piece goods by hand.


The ability to tell a meaningful story without depending on "cookie cutter" imagery throughout her collection is what make her designs so clever. This is due in part to Marisol's love of historical studies and various cultures. She researches every suitable subject matter before creating her designs.

You just know a design is right when she completes it. Every detail has been closely considered and nothing is left to chance.
