New Talent: Marco Corso

Marco Corso.


"Varapodio, a two-thousand inhabitant village near Reggio Calabria".

BirthdayJune 8th.

Press Office


Where do you live?

"I live in Milan, but right know I would like to be in another country".

Education and work experience
He started working as an art director in advertising agencies, and in 2008 attended a course in Fashion Design at the Domus Academy in Milan. After finishing his studies he started working right away for different projects as a designer, creating an accessories line for Cose A Tre, plus his own line, winning the Next Generation contest that enabled him to show his creations at Milan’s fashion week for F/W 2010.


"Conveying emotions and carrying on with my three projects (a real effort), and most of all never giving up my own collection".

Greatest dream

"Finding a fashion connoisseur willing to invest in my collection. Sadly, with no adequate financing, you are unable to develop properly your project. It’s like a good movie without an ending".

What’s next

"My future is all about my womenswear Marco Corso Fall/Winter 2011/12 collection".

Style keywords

His creations are strongly focused on fabric techniques. Fabric are hand-crafted, washed, worn out, deteriorated, re-elaborated. In the SS 2011 collection, for instance, the result of such treatments was a sophisticated used-effect: the knitwear garments are inspired by fishing net, large and thick, subsequently “bleached” to create a “sea foam” effect. The suggestions are of course stolen from a remote ocean island.

Favorite designers

Miuccia Prada, Helmut Lang, Yves Saint Laurent.

Style icon
"Old movie actresses, divas".

Elegance is...

"It’s in the gestures, in the way you move your hands, and talk, what you say … A dress can be elegant but it the wearer is not, it may look like a useless piece of fabric".

What are your inspirations?

"I always base my creations upon emotions and the sensations a woman may feel. I envisage her in a place, immersed in a particular setting, and everything starts from there. What surrounds her provides endless suggestions for the creation of a given fabric technique but also gives me the right input for the choice of colors and the silhouette. I am often inspired by old movies’ leading ladies".

What is fashion for you?

"Fashion is longing, is desire.. And if this desire is not satisfied, it will always leave a little open wound".
