Micah Gianneli and Jesse Maricic are the multifaceted duo behind Contrôle Créatif, a creative team completely immersed in the world of fashion, photography, design, online and social media.
With a background in fashion design, Micah began as a freelance fashion stylist before creating her personal style blog in 2011. That year led to alliances with some big names including Topshop where she was head stylist and worked with the flagship team at Oxford Circus, London, and also the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival where she was appointed ambassador for 2012.
Micah has worked with some renowned brands and personalities including styling the Mimco 2012/13 campaign in Palm Springs, featuring Jessica Gomes. She has also collaborated with brands on a consultancy basis, as well as designed her own line of clothing in conjunction with Mossman, which launched in 2013.
Micah quickly carved her name not only in these fields but also in online media, both with the help of long-time partner and photographer, Jesse Maricic.
Jesse’s background lies in marketing, having worked with notable photographer Michael Warshall before moving onto Lamborghini. Fusing his love of automobiles and photography, Jesse created his personal blog in 2011, showcasing his photographic work consisting of auto, fashion and events.
Jesse’s diverse photographic range has led to an impressive clientele base, working with major names including the likes of Chanel.
Since partnering to pursue their parallel adoration for fashion and photography in mid 2011, Micah and Jesse have shared much success both individually and as a team. Their unique partnership, complimentary skill sets and distinctive approach to their craft has made them one to watch; a dynamic duo who produce everything in-house, who are also comfortable both behind and in front of the lens.
Micah’s refined, feminine flair and perfectionist, methodical attitude is a compliment to Jesse’s bold, masculine style and business-minded approach – and vice versa. Both drive and inspire each other to create and achieve unparalleled imagery, projects, ideas and designs that constantly push their boundaries and challenge their ideals.
Today, Micah and Jesse continue to refine, adapt and evolve regardless of what project they’re working on. They approach everything they do with the utmost quality, attention to detail and passion, whether it’s creating inspirational images, working with the latest in fashion, or influencing the market.
Micah and Jesse’s work is testament to their strong, productive and inimitable partnership and equal love for what they do.
