About Marwan Pleasant 

Born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, Marwan has been masking in the Mardi Gras Indian culture since an early age. Practicing the skill and techniques used to build his elaborate hand crafted suits, he adapted a niche for the use of glass beads, pearls, rhinestones and storytelling through his art. Marwan’s work is displayed through his fashion brand “MARLENCE.” When he’s not studying fashion or creating art, he spends most of his time as a mentor teaching life skills to youth in his community.
