MEET MARTA

With her warm smile and contemporary European style, our stylist Marta inspires everyone at The Ark. Here’s a window into what makes her happy…

From a place we’d love to be…

Melbourne is now my home, but I grew up in a little town near Varese, 30km from Lake Como. Italy with its people, its culture and its fashion is a part of me…living close to the fashion capital of Milan meant I was able to absorb many influences, walking around the city and people-watching every day…

I’m very close to my small, beautiful family, especially my baby brother! As you can imagine it's hard to live far away from them, yet there isn't a night where my mum doesn't video call me at exactly the same time, with the same smile, no matter what is happening.

The beauty of spring in Melbourne…

Spring is one of my favourite seasons: I love these warmer sunny days as you walk through beautiful gardens and parks capturing all the colours, smells and emotions that spring brings…you can never get bored with all the events, festivals, cool rooftops and pretty beaches around the bay in Melbourne.

A stylist’s perspective…

Warm, earthy tones of olive are my favourite right now. As a stylist I love working with olive for its versatility, especially with texture contrasts, and it also works beautifully with white. I enjoy playing with accessories…statement earrings or a highlight scarf can create a strong sense of personal style.

Everyone deserves to be confident and feel good in their clothing…helping women find those pieces that best reflect their personality and lifestyle is so rewarding.
