We had the good fortune of connecting with GISLAINE MACEK and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi GISLAINE, where are your from? We’d love to hear about how your background has played a role in who you are today?
I’m from Brazil, my graduation is Science Computer, I lived 10 years in Paris, France where I studied ” oil painting ” at the “Ecole de beaux Art de Paris”. I’ve always had an appreciation for getting to know other countries and because that I’m fluent in 4 languages (Spanish, Portuguese, English and French), which helps me to have a deep interaction with other cultures.…. When I returned to Brazil, I created a Concept Store more dedicated to interior design (decorations and furniture) for 15 years in 3 Brazilian cities. I also created my first magazine “Voila” always focused on art, interior design, travel, and fashion, which I had for 10 years.
I moved to USA 7 years ago, I have 2 daughters Kenza (18 years old – studies at Richmond University and Dhana (15 years old, sophomore at Saint Andrews School). I am married to Raphael Macek, an internationally renowned photographer (www.raphaelmacek.com – @raphaelmacek).
3 years ago, I created the Timeless platform, initially with the magazine dedicated to Art, Fashion and Interior Design, and in 2020 I transformed Timeless Magazine into Timeless Concept Store dedicated to Fashion and Fine Art.
The massive privilege that came along with living in destinations like France and Brazil was not lost on me. I was completely taken with their culture, creativity and diversity.
In these places I had wonderful, life-changing experiences working with art, interior design and as a publisher. My appreciation of fine design, intriguing heritage and exquisite taste inspired me to porsuive this career.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
As a publisher, I love the glossy bright pages, sharp-eyed photography, the tantalizing titles, and the well-written words.
With a passion for art, I believe that art adds something precious and completely unique to our lives. It is why I represent inspirational and innovative artists.
“Timeless” was born to bring you the best of everything. It is meant to connect the worlds between fashion, art , design and the global efforts of nature preservation.
ABOUT THE “HORSE LOGO”
Horses stir passion, freedom, majesty and have influenced human history unlike any other animal.
These unique creatures represent straight, pride, and beauty.
They are Timeless. This is the image we want to convey.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
