I met Miss Tosh, the female character you see in the images, at SAIC, where she studied fashion. I remember seeing her at her senior fashion show, walking down the runway with crystals (given to her by Swarovski for her designs) embedded in this beautiful headpiece she had created. I was stunned, and I turned to my friend and said “I MUST work with her.” Next day, I called Miss Tosh to ask if she would be willing to do something experimental with me and perform her burlesque routine in front of the anime, combining the violent with the sensual.

Marco Marco L.A. Style Fashion Week Show
october 19, 2015
Last night saw Gay L.A. out in full force as local label Marco Marco (run by one of the city’s most popular designers, Marco Morante) presented its SS16 collection for a local audience at the closing night of L.A.’s Style Fashion Week. Currently celebrating its 12th season, the event originated from a need to counteract L.A.’s lack of high-caliber fashion events.
Marco Marco’s L.A. show served as a second act to his new collection’s New York Style Fashion Week debut last month, which filled the catwalk with porn stars, trans models and a roster of drag divas. Morante’s assemblage of non-traditional runway models is a tip of the haute couture hat to the fashion industry’s recent move toward trans acceptance. “The idea was to do part one in New York and part two in L.A.,” Veronica Kerzer, the brains behind Style Fashion Week, said last week in an interview withFrontiers. “With everything going on withCaitlyn Jenner, it was a perfect time to bring Marco Marco’s style to New York. And, of course, it’s going to be absolutely crazy in L.A.”
And “absolutely crazy” it was. Marco Marco’s L.A. runway show featured a host of local drag queens as well as the occasional porn star, YouTube celebrity and pop culture phenom.
