Milan-based designer Marcelo Burlon staged his first ever fashion show for his young, but influential, County of Milan brand earlier this summer as part of Pitti Uomo in Florence. With a background in DJing and event production, you can imagine that Burlon knows how to throw an event. Professional Italian motocross champions flew over the models walking the catwalk in the new County of Milan Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Once again, similar to his lookbook productions, the models were entirely made up of friends of the designer, making the show a family affair. The evening ended with a party, which is another specialty of Mr. Burlon, making this an evening that one does not easily forget. The above video gives a nice behind the scenes look at the preparation of the show, as well as a full recap of the show itself and the after party. We cannot wait to find out what he has planned for next season.
We recently toured the designer’s Milan home. Check it out here.
