Hi! I’m Marilyn Rivera and I live in Puerto Rico, a tropical island in the Caribbean. I live with my husband, Israel, and my two teenagers, Alexander and Paola Sofia. I started in this hobby 5 years ago and I fell in love with it immediately, It’s a therapy for me!
I’m a fashion designer so during the day I’m surrounded by fabrics, sewing machines, threads and dress forms and when I’m not playing with fabrics, I’m playing with papers. I love to create!
In my pages you will see a lot of techniques that I use for my dressmaking, such as pleating or draping. I love mixing papers with fabrics, mediums. lace, feathers, paint, and pearls . I think my style is like a ”modern shabby chic” with lots of layers, distress, textures and dimension . I’m so happy and excited to be part of Maja Design Team.
