Mini Bio (2)

Marco Morante has made his mark in the fashion and music industries as the man behind Marco Marco. He and his design team work tirelessly to create phenomenal, admirable and glamorously outré costumes for celebrities and performers such as: Fergie, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Ke$ha, Britney Spears, and Shakira... To name a few.

The 31-year-old California native isn't a traditionally trained fashion designer; he earned his Scenic and Costume Design BFA in Theatrical Design from CalArts, then opened his flagship design studio in 2003, which is located in the heart of Hollywood. The big difference, he says, is that fashion designers are taught to impose a concept, while costume designers tend to amplify something that is already there. Morante's love for glamour, extreme fashion, and prominent talent has jetted him to the top of the list of designers in high demand for one-of-a-kind creations. His ingenious fashions can be seen worn by today's hottest pop stars and leading actresses on the red carpet, in music videos, commercials, and on world tours. According to Morante, some of his creations require materials that designers don't typically work with.

Marco Marco's flagship design studio and showroom is the hub for innovative imagination, creativity, and free expression. His design team works tirelessly to create phenomenal, admirable, and glamorously outré costumes for his clients featured in spreads and covers of publications such as: Zink Magazine, Numero, Angeleno, LA Times, Surface Magazine, Los Angeles Magazine, Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine, and many more. Marco Marco's work can also be seen in commercials for Got Milk?, Vitamin Water, PlayStation, and INTEL.
