He might have left show business in the Philippines but Marco Gallo’s star continues to shine, but this time in the modeling world. The former Pinoy Big Brother housemate recently modeled in a fashion show in Italy where he is currently based.
In an interview with PUSH, Marco shared that the fashion show was organized by M&M modeling agency in Italy. “It is owned by the first ever Filipina who put her modelling agency in Italy. M&M is managing my modelling career at the moment. M&M modelling agency founder and director Chona Bacaoco is from Guimaras, Iloilo city. She worked with Hollywood stars like Jennifer Aniston, Adam Sandler, Luke Evans, Julia Holmes, among others,” Marco shared.
The young model added that the fashion show was a charity event organized to help raise funds for the survivors of the Indonesia earthquake.The clothing brands that were featured in the show include mEm clothing Milano (owned by Chona Bacaoco), Flyer Moda Milano, and Korn Taylor creations.
When asked why he decided to start modeling in Italy, Marco replied, “I entered the world of modeling to earn some money and to help my family. And of course to not leave behind what I’ve started in the Philippines.”
Marco relayed that he wants to pursue modeling as a long-time career. He shared that he will also be participating in the New York Fashion Week in September 2019.
It was in July this year when Marco left the Philippines to continue his studies in Italy.
He joined Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky Season 7 in 2016 and was evicted on week 12.
