Marcelo is available for work
Marcelo was born and lived in Spain as he simultaneously attended school in France for 10 years.
He obtained a Bachelor's degree in Law in 2003 (Bilbao, Deusto) and moved the same month to London where he stayed for three years, working in fashion retail and marketing.
He decided to move to Milan in 2007 to pursue his experience in the fashion industry as Export Manager for an Italian group of fashion brands.
Three years later –in 20210- he moved to Paris to join the "MBA Luxe" at ESSEC, an LVMH linked program where he studied the French alchemy on managing luxury brands. This opened the doors to an 8 years journey in Retail and Collection Merchandising as well as Product Marketing -Prada and Bvlgari- with a focus in Accessories.
In 2019, confused between passion and work addiction, profitability and creativity, heart and brain, he treats himself with 10 months of self exploration, diving into Yoga and meditation in the Far-East.
After such a reset period, he creates in 2020 his own brand project: CHATTouché, a collection of conscious accessories that embrace multi culturality. His professional goal in 2023 is to dive again into the Fashion Industry offering a reshuffled sensitivity on people and industry competitive synergies.
