Fashion Designer and Illustrator
Marcela Gutierrez was born in Florida in 1978 and raised in Guatemala City, Guatemala until she was 18 years old. Pursuing her interest in sketch illustration, she enrolled in Architecture in Monterrey, Mexico only to find herself merging into Graphic Design after two years. Academic and creative wanderlust lead to an intersection of color and design theory with figure drawing where she realized fashion was her true and consistent passion throughout her study.
Following the steps of her favorite designers Alexander McQueen and John Galliano Marcela enrolled at Central Saint Martins in London and while studying, interned in New York for Marc Jacobs, Nylon Magazine and Luisa Beccaria (Milan). After graduating as a fashion designer, she took the opportunity to collaborate and work with Alexander McQueen and John Galliano. Currently, Marcela lives and works as a freelance illustrator, designer and stylist.
Clients include: Harpers Bazaar, Prada, Fendi, Loewe, Carolina Herrera New York, Pull & Bear, Ellesse, Andres Sarda, Oysho, Freixenet, Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, Metal Magazine, etc...
