Macarena San Martin studied design at the Catholic University of Chile, her birthplace. Before finishing her studies, she took part in a student exchange in Italy, where her experience and introduction to the world of design was an incentive for her to return to Europe and further her studies. Her destination this time was Barcelona, where she took a post-graduate course in Fashion Styling at BAU. She soon became involved in the world of publishing, thus combining all of her interests-design, fashion, and the written word.
