Mariana was born in Colombia and grew up immersed in a very artistic and creative environment. She attended a music academy for over 10 years, and studied Fashion Design at LaSalle College in Bogota, Colombia. The blend of music and fashion came together and her creative career really began with designing costumes for her music peers. By the time she was done with fashion school, she worked for 2 years in the industry and continued designing costumes for music groups. Knowing that she wanted to get immersed in the costume world, she came to Canada in 2019 and studied Costume Production at Fanshawe College. She has now worked in different projects involving theatre, dance and film and is a member at CAFTCAD (Canadian Alliance of Film & Television Costume Arts & Design).
