I met Marta a few years ago, when her career as blogger was still just in dream phase. Today I interview her as one of the most important fashion bloggers in Spain and the wonderful thing, that was completely notable, was how she has managed to preserve her sweetness even after her increase in popularity and fame status.

For those novices to this new It girl Marta Carriedo, she describes herself as a normal girl, cheerful, funny, optimistic and talkative. Never would anyone believe that she studied economics at the Autonomous University of Madrid and worked as an Auditor. But with an innate passion for fashion, Marta’s then hobby would soon turn her into a fashion success story.

Marta’s success really took shape when Director of Grazia magazine Charo Izquierdo, suggested including Marta’s blog in the popular magazine. After her incredible period with the team at Grazia, Hola magazine then showcased her blog on their Hola platform, which propelled her to instant fame as a leading fashion blogger in Spain.

Welcoming us into her mostly white, discreet, and subtle abode (an interior that reflects the blogger herself), she settles down to take us into the world of this loveable fashion blogger.

After my interview with Marta Carriedo, I discovered that Marta still remained very much the normal feminine beauty that she has always been and that if you want something strongly enough, with effort you can achieve it. Hard work yields results if Marta is any example at all it is that dreams can come true. Therefore many thanks to Marta Carriedo, for giving us the opportunity of sharing with us her home, her life and especially herself. DIFORM wishes Marta Carriedo the very best for the future.
