Marianna Kastrinos is based in the beautiful island of Corfu. This is where she grew up and draws her inspiration from.
The island, with its glamorous history and world class venues is a popular destination for weddings from all over Europe. The spectacular old town and amazing beaches, medieval forts and old palaces have long been the favourites of travellers and royalty alike.
Staging your dream wedding in Corfu would be an experience like no other.
Marianna Kastrinos was born in Paris to a French mother and Greek father. She spent the first years of her life submerged in a sensuous wonderland: Mediterranean colours and swirling, woven fabrics surrounded her at every turn in her father’s Atelier. Such an environment kindled a love of textiles and design in Marianna from an early age.
In 1997 Marianna studied in the “Institut Paris Modelist” and fell in love with “La Haute Couture”. In 2002, she was awarded a first prize for originality in a competition for young designers by “le coup de coeur” of Thierry Mugler. From 2002 to 2006 she was employed in the creative design department of Design and Concept Studio, specializing in luxury women’s clothing.
Marianna’s Greek heritage remains an integral part of her life and work. Greece and Corfu in particular remain her main source of inspiration.
This is where she has based her Haute Couture Atelier and Pret a Porter boutique since 2007.
