Marcela Gutiérrez was born in Florida in 1978 and raised in
Guatemala City, Guatemala until she was 18 years old.

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 and illustration
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 for Marc Jacobs and
Nylon Magazine in New York and Luisa Beccaria in Milan.
She graduated as a fashion designer, she took the opportunity
to collaborate and work with Alexander McQueen and
John Galliano. Currently, Marcela lives and works in Barcelona
and New York as an artist and designer.
