Model, designer, photographer, queen.

As a model, photographer, and now shoe designer, Mari Giudicelli is the definition of an it-girl. When she arrived in New York City five years ago from Rio de Janeiro, Giudicelli’s natural creative eye, experience in graphic design and photography, and minimalist personal style attracted the attention of brands like Eckhaus Latta and Mansur Gavriel, for whom Giudicelli has appeared in several campaigns. Last March, Giudicelli signed with Ford Models, pushing her further into modeling stardom. She uses her own photography to chronicle the behind-the-scenes aspects of her modeling jobs on her super dreamy Tumblr.

Next up for Giudicelli is her own line of luxury footwear. Whilst studying Accessoriy Design at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology, she spent countless hours in the school’s shoe lab creating prototypes by hand. Now that she's graduated, she will be working full time on her collection launching this spring. The shoes will reflect her personal style: a blend of vintage finds with simple silhouettes and colors. So if you’re looking for cool girl shoes from a cool girl herself, Giudicelli’s line will be just for you!

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
