Celina Martin was born in Madrid, Spain, and studied fashion in Madrid, London, and San Francisco. After her apprenticeship with the designer Maria Chen, Celina opened her own shop in one of Madrid’s most fashionable areas, where she designed and made looks for day, night, and wedding in the basement atelier with a small team of artisans. Love brought her to San Francisco, where she now lives with her family and designs and makes practical and whimsical accessories inspired by her west coast lifestyle.
