At Home With
Ana Mª Mancedo.
After 17 successful years in New York, the former model of Elite and fashion designer Ana Maria Macedo has moved with her family to Marbella, Spain.
Ana Maria sells her clothing under the name of Ana Maria Couture in 12 countries all over the world. “Europe is an important market for us, both from a customer perspective but also from an inspirational perspective.
I will always be Brazilian at heart in my core influences for my designs, but Paris and Milan are the two motherships of fashion and it is great to have proximity to the best designers and brand creators in the world. And all the major fashions shows are still in Europe”.
Ana Maria moved with her 2 daughters Arya (5 years) and Johanna (6 years) and her Swedish husband, financier Jon Jonsson to Marbella in the summer of 2017.
They open they second clinic ‘’Executive Health” (Early Detection Screening) in Europe inside of Helicopteros Sanitarios in Marbella.
So far they cherish their new Home town. “Marbella is like the west coast of USA; the best microclimate in Europe; a great entrepreneurial spirit and a cosmopolitan melting pot; every nationality is represented here”.
Ana Maria lives in a mansion in the most exclusive gated Neighborhood in Marbella. It is up on the hills of the mountain and the views to the Rock of Gibraltar and to Africa are breathtaking. We love everything that Marbella has to offer. The kids ride on the Beach, play tennis and we take
hikes in the mountains. Almost every weekend from December to April we go skiing in Sierra Nevada”.
“The cultural offering is also great. I can highly recommend the cathedral in Seville where Christopher Columbus is buried and also the Alhambra in Granada”
“We love to be in Europe with the ability to go to all the major capitals with a 2 hours flight. This autumn we went to Paris, London and Rome. We also did a safari in South Africa before Christmas”
Their mansion is guarded by 3 police trained male German shepherds from K9 Canine Trust.
