Then she immediatly started working for Yves Salomon, and her idea were taken to make many garments for the Maison itself and for other brands the Maison works with, such as Yves Saint Laurent, Dior, Prada, Luis Vitton, Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu, Jean Paul Gaultier. After this experience, she decided to create a collection of haute couture, in collaboration with the jeweler Paulin Bedou. In March 2012, Marta became head of production and modeling for the luxury Parisian brand Rowena Forrest. Furthermore she participated and won the contest by Bespoke Le Cuir à Paris, which would allow her, to have her own space in the exhibition of Cuir à Paris in September 2012.
