I honestly don't even remember how Marcus and I first met -- but I think it had to have been through mutual friends mingling at the NYFW tents. With super fly style and a hush-hush emerging brand, this stylist is on his way to the top and I had to know more! Get to know Marcus and his NYC life in his CULT Chats interview>>
WHY NEW YORK CITY?

THE CITY NEVER SLEEPS...WHAT TIME DID YOU GET TO BED LAST NIGHT?
4am. I was catching up with an old friend I haven’t seen in a very long time. We went out for drinks, which then lead us to Boom Boom Room.

COFFEE - I’m not a coffee drinker, but Saturday’s in Soho is usually my getaway spot. Tea is my thing.

COCKTAILS - Usually places in Soho or Lower East Side.
