I’m Mariana Lourenço, an activist content creator, editor and yoga teacher.
I’m a content creator, founder and editor of Stories Collective, an independent fashion & art magazine, with more than 10 years experience in the creative industries in London, Berlin and São Paulo. Currently seeking a yoga and sustainable lifestyle, besides teaching yoga, I help conscious businesses to create tailored content, imagery and strategies for their media platforms.
By bringing a fashion and editorial lens to my work I develop soulful and visually appealing narratives that can reach a precise audience, this way spreading the message of purpose-driven brands that are doing nice things for the Earth and its people.
Welcome to my Portfolio.
As a content creator I love helping clients promote their business and message through thoughtful narratives, imagery and media strategies. My background in fashion filled me up with a set of diverse skills from marketing and image production to storytelling and refined aesthetic values.
Combining these skills with my passion for yoga and sustainability, I support wellness and conscious brands to enrich their content through a strategic approach.
As a Yoga teacher I love sharing my knowledge with others, no matter if in a class or a written piece. The practice of Yoga also broadens my creativity and innovative thinking. It also brings me much more focus and clarity to my writing and creative direction work.
I’ve been a dedicated practitioner for seven years and teaching for three, so creating content and marketing strategies for yoga centers and brands is a way to combine my passions while sharing the life-changing benefits of this amazing practice.

I graduated in Fashion Business with an emphasis in Marketing and have completed with distinction an MA in Media Production at the University of the Arts London. I have worked over 10 years in the creative industries in London, Berlin and São Paulo. Before transitioning my career to content creation and social media I have worked for several years as a stylist for news media and advertising where I developed my fashion, production and marketing skills and got a huge network of creatives worldwide.
My career began in São Paulo working with fashion design and PR. In 2011, I moved to London and started assisting renowned stylists for titles such as Vogue US, L’UOMO Vogue, I-D Magazine, T:The New York Times Style, Wonderland, as well as big advertising campaigns and even celebrities like Rihanna and Jude Law. Back in Brazil in 2013, I freelanced for Brazilian magazines such as Vogue and Glamour and took part on the costume design team of ‘Geração Brasil’ soap opera produced by TV Globo, the second-largest commercial TV network in the world.
In 2014, I founded my own magazine, Stories Collective, which started as a bilingual digital platform featuring the work of international creatives and over the years evolved to an annual print magazine and art exhibition funded by a government-run program by Brazil’s Ministry of Culture.
Searching for more purpose-driven opportunities, I moved to Berlin in 2015. There, I worked at the Berliner Stadtmission NGO, got involved in the Fashion Revolution movement and supported the sustainable fashion project Green Fashion Tours with social media management until 2019, when I came to Asia to fully engage in a Yoga lifestyle and improve my Yoga teaching skills.
Currently, I use all my media and marketing skills to support yoga projects and purpose-driven brands bringing a fashion and editorial lens to content creation and digital marketing strategies.

The visual artist is the genius behind Beauty 3000, an Instagram filter with a plastic effect that went viral and became the favorite among influencers and artists. Passionate about technology and sci-fi movies, Johanna sees filters as digital accessories, and hopes in the future we will have well-designed augmented reality glasses so we can wear them in our daily lives.
For our first issue we explore the beauty that is simplicity. The Simplicity issue celebrates clean shapes, rationalist thinking, classic tailoring and its timelessness. A minimalist luxury, simple that is chic, simple yet luxurious. Garments that will never fall out of style, from casual to sophisticated, unpretentious looks that captivate us for its effortlessness.
