The Marco Marco New York Fashion Week Runway Show represents something truely groundbreaking! Marco Marco designer Morante is famous for his extravagant catwalk shows. His 2018 catwalk show at New York Fashion Week was no exception. That’s because it featured 34 transgender models. The models included Gigi gorgeous, Trace Lysette, as well as Dominique Jackson and Angelica Ross from FX’s series Pose. The show therefore helped to add diversity to an industry that has a specific narrow image of what beauty is. Morante said “I wanted to create a space to celebrate trans bodies”.
Morante, the designer behind Marco Marco underwear, unveiled his Collection Seven line on September 8th at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom. The collection featured a range of more avant-garde and also flamboyant styles that Morante is famous for. Bold and brave, these styles will wow in the coming season.

When I started #TransIsBeautiful 3 years ago I wanted it to be a way for trans folks to celebrate what makes us uniquely and beautifully trans. It wasn’t about how cis we can look but rather about celebrating those things about us that are uniquely and beautifully trans. The #marcomarcoshow last night which featured a cast or all trans models feels like yet another fulfillment of the empowerment of trans beauty this hashtag is meant to celebrate and engender. Thank you to everyone who has used this hashtag to empower yourselves and each other. Congratulations to everyone in the historic Marco Marco Show last night. #TransIsBeautiful Regrann from @faymeproblems – Last night was full of so much love and so much beauty. @geenarocero @ariscestocrat @tracelysette @gigigorgeous @dominiquet.a.r.jackson @alionsfear @thelinabradford @steroidbeyonce @laith_ashley @angelicaross @leeummmm @theofficial_amarijayce @carmen_carrera @ftmmuscle @hansongobron @marcomarcounderwear #nyfw #transgender #transisbeautiful #lgbt #marcomarco #nyfw2018 #lgbtq #marcomarcoshow – #regrann
