Venezuelan fashion designer with Costa Rican roots, she graduated from Brivil Fashion Institute in Caracas, Venezuela. She first started as a fashion illustrator of great Venezuelan designers. Then she moved to Los Angeles, California where she worked for a successful Venezuelan company in the area of mass production. Among its assignments was to be a fashion buyer, a job that she completed at the most important fashion fairs.
Mariana learned very clear ideas for doing business, choosing textiles and supplies, dealing with clients and suppliers and knowing how fast the fashion world moves.
In Brazil she had the opportunity to know and contribute ideas to Bamboo bathing suits and returned to Venezuela with the idea of making only bathing suits. This brand was named COCOA SWIMWEAR.
In 2011 she opened her atelier in Caracas. Due to the demand for casual garments she focused on launching her own brand, betting on a line ready to wear for women. In 2014 RENAISSANCE came to light, under the name of Mariana Camacho. She said goodbye to her brand COCOA Swimwear but not to making bathing suits. They remain for their most exclusive clients in the Atelier.
