profile Marcelo Burlon Enterprise is an evolving one-man venture fuelled on Burlon’s unique personality. An effervescent character, Marcelo switches between the worlds of fashion, music and art effortlessly, often blurring the boundaries in between disciplines. Consultant, editor, stylist, PR, party instigator and much more, there are no rules to what he does apart from one: that it must be good. A trained eye, a knowing mind and a finely-tuned ear - he is a DJ too after all, you’ll know from his club Pink Is Punk - Burlon’s left-of-centre sensibility is one that brings underground cool to pop culture. It results in a heady, explosive cocktail. Having cut his teeth at Dolce & Gabbana and Alessandro Dell’Acqua as event promoter and celebrities PR, Burlon progressed to collaborate with a roster of clients including Karla Otto, KCD, Slam Jam, Nike, Adidas, Diesel, Attila & Co all the while keeping up his role as PR person for budding designer Riccardo Tisci, who is now creative director at Givenchy in Paris. With a role in public relations for contemporary art space Cardi Gallery, an outlet he still keeps to this day, Marcelo is also the Editor-in-Chief of Rodeo Magazine, a project which has allowed his ephemeral talent to be expressed through print, curating the essence of the current climate into a magazine. Independent since 2006, Marcelo counts Alexander McQueen, Maison Martin Margiela, Givenchy, Versace, Calvin Klein, Gucci, Prada, Jil Sander and Marc Jacobs amongst his latest clients. Difficult to summarise yes, when you meet him you’ll understand. There’s no-one quite like Marcelo, he leaves an indelible mark on every soul he touches.
