Marco Marco presented his Spring/Summer Collection “Three Line,” this week. The designer has dressed such stars as Britney Spears, Fergie, Iggy Azalea, and Katy Perry.
The show, hosted by the Vibiana Cathedral in downtown Los Angeles, featured a range of models. Women, men, androgynous and drag adorned the runway. There were several special guests from RuPauls Dragrace; Mathu Anderson, William Belli, Detox Icunt, and Sharon NeedlesJai. This show marks the second time the designer has pushed gender roles by challenging stereotypical beauty.
This event was a step in the right direction for the LGBT community and High-fashion. The guests and models were there to celebrate and support unique beauty across the board. The designer specifically chose models who had different shape and body types to be in the show.
“His celebration of gender bending, an active rebellion against gender roles. Marco’s choice in LGBT models represents to society that there’s a beauty to be found in different body types, sizes, and fashion.”
Attendees included Adam Lambert, Carmen Electra, Jai Rodriguez, Chris Salvatore, Tahj Mowry, Lily Ghalichi, GG Gharachedaghi, Samuel Larsen, and Vivian Lamolli.
Jai Rodriguez of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, said this in response to the choice models.
“I don’t know very many models who can walk the runway and give the same essence of a pop sensation like many of these girls from Drag Race. I think that we are moving forward.”
Likewise, Chris Salvatore, a gay rights activist said that it’s important to support the designer especially within the entertainment industry.
“I feel like there are a lot of kids nowadays that are looking for a role model and they just want someone to look up to. [Marco] proves that you can be out and still be successful, and that you can follow your dreams. These young kids need role models. There aren’t a lot of them out there.”
