"I used to think it was art that was poetry for the eyes...but walking down Via Verri...I know it is fashion that I can feast my eyes on, write verses about." Martta reached this conclusion last summer while studying fashion in Milan at the Instituto Marangoni. During the program, she analyzed fashion trends and designed her own spring/summer collection, which mixed old-style farm with romantic feminine pieces. Inspired by her summer experience, she followed her fashion muse to study at New York's Parsons School of Design. Martta grew up in Austria, Switzerland, Israel, Russia and New York, but she credits much of her artistic and emotional inspiration to annual summer visits to her Finnish homeland. Throughout high school, she has been a leader in Amnesty International and math club, and is captain of her varsity track team. Not yet certain of a major, she looks forward to exploring English, statistics, and chemistry at Carleton.
