Marisa Dennino

From a pretty young age, I knew that I wanted a career in the fashion industry. When it came time to make the decision about college and my future career path, I followed that desire. After high school, I left my home in Draper, UT for Los Angeles, CA where I studied Merchandise Marketing at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. After two years there, I transferred to Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta, GA to finish my education, receiving a B.F.A. in Fashion Marketing and Management. I entered SCAD thinking I wanted to become a buyer, but the universe had other plans for me. I ended up getting involved with the SCAD fashion show, for which I was the Assistant Model Coordinator/Fashion Show Assistant for three years. That position changed that entire path of my life and working in event production after graduation became my focus.

After graduating from SCAD in 2019, I went to work as a producer for a custom fabrication business called Symmetry Event Solutions in Hauppauge, NY. As a producer, I get to work on bringing experiential marketing events to life for companies such as Michael Kors, Saks Fifth Avenue and Refinery29. Though my professional journey has taken a departure from fashion as the main focus, it still remains a priority in my personal life. I love being able to express myself through what I wear and experimenting with new trends. In recent years, I have begun thinking about fashion differently, slowly making small changes to how I consume fashion in an effort to become as sustainable as possible. My approach to how I consume fashion may be constantly changing, but that feeling that a good outfit brings me will always be there.
