Authentically Italian, Marco Delli was born and raised in the fashion capital of the world. Lured away from city life and the familiar urban landscape of Milan, he began his journey as an engineer in remote locations across North Africa and South America.
After refining his creative eye and gleaning a vast wealth of knowledge in the international marketplace, Marco returned to Milan where he applied his passion for design and engineering towards furniture and interiors.
A true creative mind, his love for design quickly spilled into fashion. He launched his first line of premium leatherwear and later parlayed his talents internationally to Los Angeles where his signature label Marco Delli was born in 1990.
In the U.S. Marco established key relationships with top buyers, securing his line in numerous high-end boutiques.
As demand grew for Marco’s visionary forward footwear, his label gained celebrity recognition amongst elite A-list clientele; Lenny Kravitz, Elton John, Will Smith, Rod Stewart, Eva Mendes, Sharone Stone, Madonna and so on.
In addition to the slew of Los Angeles tastemakers eyeing his mens and womens collections, Marco Delli footwear was continually featured in coveted media and editorial outlets including; L’Uomo Vogue, Vogue Pelle, Vanity Fair, Elle, Moda Pelle, Cosmopolitan, W, WWD, DNR, Los Angeles Times, Ocean Drive, E! Entertainment and NBC.
With his extensive experience navigating the complex luxury goods marketplace, Marco Delli has a sought after savoir-faire for handling branding and a distinct ability to discern those who truly value and appreciate fine premium handcrafted Italian goods.
The Marco Delli brand today is a reflection of Marco's fascination with Western wear, his deeply rooted love for Rock 'n' Roll and heavily inspired by his various travels around the world. It specializes in handmade shoes using various old world techniques and modern treatment methods. The combination of luxury leathers combined with the unique treatments is what makes each piece a highly conceptual wearable work of art, the collections celebrate the unexpected nature of fashion.
