Martina Ceccherini Nelli was born in Milan, Italy, yet spent the majority of her life in London, England. After finishing high school in the UK, Martina moved to the States where she studied a short course in journalism at the University of Miami for one year, and then shortly after moved to New York City to intern at Marie Claire Magazine as the creative director’s assistant. During this time Martina founded her luxury swimwear brand “Agua Marina”, inspired by the period spent in Florida and by the fashion capitals she grew up in. Truly discovering her passion for the fashion world and willing to learn more about it, she decided to return to her roots and study Fashion Business at Istituto Marangoni in Milan. During her studies Martina did various internship experiences, the most recent as seller assistant for Giorgio Armani, in the UK brand headquarters. Moved by a profound passion towards her study subjects, she decided to focus her thesis project on the future realization of a ready-to-wear brand. She won the Marketing Prize of CNMI Milano Moda Graduate 2017 and was awarded with an exclusive internship opportunity at Tomorrow London Ltd.
