Marcos Luengo was born in Grado (Asturias), Spain, in 1964. He has a degree in psychology from the University of Oviedo and he is an English professor with a degree from the University of Cambridge. He stars his own teaching business until he decides to pursue his great passion: art and design. As a creative and being an entrepreneur, he presents his first collection of handbags in 2001, shortly afterwards he incorporates a line of double-face nappa garments and markets it through multibrand stores, the best in all of Spain and Portugal. This led him to his own space in Oviedo in 2007, and expand his range of products and lines, designing tailormade bridal and cocktail garments exclusively for his clients. He currently presents his Pret-A-Porter collections at Madrid Fashion Week since Fall / Winter 2014, having presented around 14 collections to date. The firm has two multifunctional spaces, which integrate their store, workshop, and studio for private appointments; one located in Madrid at Calle Jorge Juan,16, and the second in Oviedo at Calle Palacio Valdés, 10.
Marcos Luengo presents his collection inspired by the work of the artist Rubén Martín de Lucas “El Jardín de Fukuoka”, a japanese philosopher who established his particular method based on agriculture as a means for the development of the human being and its harmony with Nature.
Luengo develops his characteristic fluid and Japanese-inspired patterns in a seasonless proposal, through sustainable and natural fabrics such as linen, hemp, silk, cotton, wool and recycled nylon that appear both in solid colors and in prints developed from the artist`s artworks.
