Verina Marcel’s life story reads like one straight off the big screen; from iconic model and muse to break-out fashion designer, there is no mountain too high for Marcel.
Discovered at just 13 years old by an agency in Düsseldorf, Germany, Verina Marcel quickly became an international it-girl. From being a Cosmopolitan cover girl to her partnership with Helmut Newton, Verina is now a renowned model and fashion icon.
Her story starts in Düsseldorf, Germany, where a modeling agent discovered Marcel at only 13 years old. Soon after, Marcel packed her backs and moved to Milan, Italy. There, she signed with the Top Agency, FASHION, which launched Marcel’s career in fashion to the stars. In the blink of an eye, Marcel became one of the most recognized and sought-after models globally.
Down the line, Marcel left Milan to relocate to The Big Apple, where she signed with IMG Models. In the states, Verina booked ad campaigns and runway shows with brands like GUESS, La Perla, Guess, Chanel, Armani, Gucci, Prada, and Valentino. Additionally, Verina has landed numerous features on various covers and editorials for magazines such as Vogue, Cosmopolitan, L’Officiel de la Mode, Harper’s Bazaar, and Elle.
It was also in the States where Marcel’s acting career took off; unsurprisingly, she instantly found bountiful successes in the television and film industries. Verina appeared on the hit TV show “Veronica Mars’ next to Kristen Bell and in movies including “Eagles in the Chicken Coop” and “National Lampoon’s TV: The Movie,” next to Lee Majors. She starred in Filter’s “No Love” music video next to CarmenElectra. She also starred in commercials for major brands like Nikon, Mercedes, Cadillac, Old Spice, and Odyssey Golf, to only name a few.
Now, Marcel is once again breaking into a new industry; this time, she’s dedicating her endless talents to founding her own fashion line: VERINA.
Marcel’s line collaborates with legendary fashion designer and her longtime personal friend Lloyd Klein. Marcel met Klein early in her career, and the two have been working together for many years since. Verina and Klein have had a fruitful working partnership; Verina has long-since been Klein’s muse and in-house model. She has also consulted on Klein’s recent collections for both his own brand and brands to which Klein contributes.
As a celebrated designer, Lloyd Klein has dressed many Hollywood celebrities over the years. He also has collaborated with iconic brands like Givenchy and Madame Grés in his earlier career. Now, this duo has once again joined forces to design and launch VERINA.
Marcel’s years of working with Klein on various projects and collaborations gave her valuable insight into her talents and passion for creating fashion brands and lines. With her extensive background and impressive network, Verina decided it was time to apply her knowledge and skills to create a brand of her very own. Through VERINA, she hopes to empower women by providing them with an opportunity for self-expression via fashion. Verina aims to give women a specific and entirely unique chance to pursue individualism through her clothing.
Anything Marcel does, whether runway modeling or posing for fashion editorials, turns into gold. Her newest entrepreneurial venture into the world of fashion design will be no different; VERINA promises to not only be a massive success but also to become the latest go-to fashion brand. Marcel has meticulously planned and designed VERINA to become timeless staples that make women feel beautiful, confident, and ready to take on the world.
While Marcel continues to make her name known in the fashion industry, her priority is to uphold her value of being socially responsible. As an entrepreneur, Marcel aims to celebrate and empower women by providing a channel of self-expression through stunning additions to compliment anyone’s wardrobe.
However, Marcel also intends to use VERINA as a means to continue her philanthropy and activism efforts. For many years, she has been an animal rights advocate and has worked tirelessly to further environmental preservation efforts. Due to her passion for animal rights and environmental causes, Marcel will be donating a percentage of her profit to WildAid, an Animal Rights charity.
Marcel is, without a doubt, a powerful woman; her ‘VERINA’ collection will empower women, support noble causes, and become the newest must-have collection!
