Who is Marion Gruber ?

I’m Marion, 29 years old mama and living in a suburb close to our lovely and beautiful capital, Paris. But I’m not (at all) a Parisian. Originally I’m from Catalonia, born and raised in Perpignan. I moved here with my Parisian boyfriend (now husband), and we’ve been here for ten years now! I studied at ISCOM in Paris for my Masters in Communication, and I graduated with an MBA in International Fashion Marketing. I’ve worked as a Junior Publisher Executive for the International Editions of ELLE Magazine and then as a marketing & digital manager of the ready-to-wear group Bestseller in France. Before that, I worked for Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, Jalouse magazine and for & I am now full-time on FRINGE&FRANGE as I just created my company to develop my brand.

Marion, 29 ans, maman de Romy et mariée à Guillaume, et je vis dans la banlieue proche de notre chère et belle capitale. Je ne suis pas (du tout) pour autant parisienne. Petite catalane, enlevée de sa ville natale Perpignan par un amoureux parisien (qui est désormais mon mari !), voilà 10 ans que je me refais une vie ici. J’ai étudié à l’ISCOM Paris jusqu’à mon Master 1 en Communication et je suis également diplômée d’un MBA en Marketing International de la Mode. Après avoir été Junior Publisher Executive pour les éditions internationales du magazine ELLE puis ELLE Décoration, j’étais en charge du marketing & du digital des marques du groupe de prêt-à-porter international Bestseller (Vero Moda, Only, Vila, …) pour la France. J’ai travaillé avant cela chez Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, pour le magazine Jalouse et à la rédaction du & J’ai créé ma société durant l’été 2016, afin de me mettre à plein temps sur FRINGE&FRANGE !
