A CORUÑA, Spain – Marta Ortega, heiress of the Spanish clothing empire Zara, and Carlos Torretta, son of the prestigious Argentine designer Roberto Torretta, were married on Friday in an intimate ceremony at the Ortega family home in this northwestern Spanish city.
The bride’s father, Amancio Ortega, is the founder of the Inditex fashion group, whose brands include Zara, Pull&Bear, Bershka and Massimo Dutti. Forbes magazine lists him as the sixth-wealthiest person in the world, with a fortune calculated at $70 billion.
Marta Ortega wore an exclusive design of the Valentino fashion house, while the groom chose a classic midnight-blue suit, tailor-made on London’s Savile Row, sources in the family circle said.
The mother and sister of the bride were dressed, for their part, in Roberto Torretta creations.
The couple met in January 2016 at the birthday party of Spanish model Eugenia Silva.
Marta Ortega, 34, was previously married to Spanish jockey Sergio Alvarez Moya, with whom she had a son, Amancio Alvarez Ortega, and from whom she separated in early 2015.
The 35-year-old Carlos Torretta developed a career in the model agency Society Model Management, the US branch of Elite Models Agency, before moving to Madrid where he created West Village Images, a firm dedicated to photography and video management.
