Before the Marco Marco Collection Four was revealed, The Underwear Expert was backstage with Colby Melvin, talking Marco Marco style and taking in all the buzzing excitement. Then during the F*KN SIRIUS show, The Underwear Expert got to sit front row, where all that glitter shined the brightest. Now almost a week later, we caught up with Designer Marco Morante to talk inspiration, design, models, and what’s to come from Part 2 of the fashion show.

The Underwear Expert: Where do you draw inspiration from when designing your looks?

Marco Morante: I always start with something simple. This time it was these little doodles I did on graph paper in math class when I was suppose to be learning. I knew I liked geometry for a reason.

The Underwear Expert: How does hosting a show in New York differ from in LA? Does the crowd make a difference?

Marco Morante: Doing a show in NY actually came relatively a lot less stressful than I had imagined. I have such an awesome team backing me that any issues that came to surface really were taking care of right away. I thought that the crowd would be a little more reserved than LA, but those fuckers hooted and hollered with the best of them. I love a rowdy crowd. Silence is for the dead.

The Underwear Expert: Tell us about your one-of-a-kind Kim Davis shirt! How did you come up with that?

Marco Morante: Honestly one of my friends posted this picture on Facebook and I had to have it as my closing shirt. In what world is it okay to do what she did.

The Underwear Expert: What can we expect from the part two of the “F*KN SIRIUS” show?

Marco Morante: Expect the unexpected.
