#EtniaCollective, the project we began a year ago, continues to sign up new artists. The latest addition to the project is Mariana Figueiredo, better known on Instagram as @marfilu. This young Mexican photographer and fashion lover is able to capture the essence of every city she visits and add her own casual touch to all her looks. What most stands out in her portraits are the striking colors and daring mix of prints.
For this project, Mariana has bet everything on red, combining our Miramar RDTQ with a very powerful and striking look. Want to know a little more about this artist? Here’s her interview!
