Marisa Braat

Marisa Estelle Braat is a passionate artist currently in her last year at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC,  obtaining her bachelors degree in Accessories Design. The move to New York city was a natural one as she knew from a young girl that she needed to be submerged in art and culture. After attending precollege courses in all areas of fashion,  handbags and shoes turned out to be the perfect fit. Dancing commercially and doing other freelance artwork are just two of the  hobbies Marisa enjoys in addition to designing. She hopes to experience many parts of the fashion/entertainment industries as a professional. Marisa is already learning many great recipes for success from the Sienna Ray brand and is excited to see what the future has in store.
