Interview by Corbin Brett Chamberlin
Using words like dashing and stylish to illustrate Michael Macko would actually sell him short. Often found in a bow tie, a dash of safety orange and a Michael Bastian ensemble, The AVENUE insider salutes the style of Mr. Macko. Previously the Men’s Fashion Director at Saks Fifth Avenue and then Fashion Director of Details, Macko’s trailblazing taste has made him one of the best dressed gents around town. As of late, Macko is the Editor-at-Large of Valetas well as a freelance stylist and consultant. You’ve seen his work with Ascot Chang, Michael Bastian amongst others. Macko talks fashion and tells all about his fashionable adventures with The AVENUEInsider.
What projects are you working on at the moment?
MM: “Right now it’s all about Spring 2012. I’m working on styling shows and presentations for September and shooting look books for clients as well as curating a special section at MRket Show next month in New Tork and Las Vegas. That’s a really fun project. It’s like having my own little menswear show. I’m also doing a fun project with L.L. Bean Signature in Provincetown. I also just styled a story for photographer Matt Albiani. It’s a modern version of “The Great Gatsby.” It comes out next month in Plum Hamptons. It was really fun to do.
