Meet Marianne Sao; Similarly to Macias’s story, Sao styling career “just happened.”  After attending design school, Sao began her climb up the creative ladder; starting as a production artist, then a designer, and then an art director. Sao’s love of food eventually led her to the cultivation of her passion, becoming a food stylist. “I cooked and baked … but making it look beautiful on camera took time, and lots of trial and error.” The trial and error paid off, and over the years, Sao and the team have created many masterpieces.
