As a self-taught designer and seamstress, Marilyn who eat, sleep, dream and breathe fashion believes that fashion inspiration can be found in everything and in everyone especially the outdoors as she observes the seasons change and the transformation of flowers as they bloom and fade paying special attention to colors and see how they tie in to the colors and mix of fabrics.
Marilyn creates fashion for the FREE-spirited fashion role model regardless of age, size, sex, height, origin or size. Marilyn’s fashion esthetic is a mix of various cultures and fabrics that span across the globe to include Africa with an influence of India, Asia, London, Europe and the Caribbean.
