First Call
“My love for fashion started in 1980 when my sister took a summer fashion design course in SLIMS. I was exposed to her assignments and copies of Manila Women's Wear. Since then, I went into costume design for theater styling, makeup, creative direction for fashion shows and I also designed some capsule collections for retail brands”, shares Marlon.(Preview, September 2009)

Inspiration
The Hunger (1983) captures my fascination with the dark, dangerous and dressed-up characters in film noir, Hitchcock and vampire movies”, explains Marlon of the things that stimulate his creativity.(Preview, September 2009)
