Mari Paduano Creative Director & Fashion Stylist
A vibrant visionary made in Italy, Mari Paduano’s visually-arresting work explores a multitude of thematic concerns. With an instinctive, ethereal touch reminiscent of her key inspirations - Grace Coddington & Tim Walker - and her status established as a creative chameleon, eclecticism is the constant that permeates her hypnotic body of work.
From channelling the opulence of bygone eras to infusing fashion film with technological innovations, no subject matter is too unconventional. Her styling work garners praise in its own right, most recently earning awards from Milan’s Fashion Film Festival alongside nominations from its Canadian and German equivalents.
Moreover, Paduano's curatorial eye extends through all facets of an editorial: from the photographer’s lens to the set designer’s field of vision.
This multi-dimensional approach renders her fully confident at the helm of a photoshoot’s creative direction; an attribute that manifests, among other projects, in prismatic campaigns for the brightest talents of Irish Design.
