MICHAEL MACKO

Fashion Creative: Stylist, Writer & Trend Forecaster

I'm a maximizer, I take something good and make it great.


From industry trends to project-specific custom advice, I provide qualitative and quantitative expertise to help your company create its future. In an ever-evolving fashion world, obtaining the information that matters is hard, getting it right, even harder. I have provided top-tier consulting to brands, retailers, and trade shows across the world, advising them on design, forecasting, and product strategies using my unique set of retail and editorial skills. I am also an accomplished writer and stylist.


Previously the Fashion Director of DETAILS and MR Magazines, Senior Vice President of Fashion, Public Relations & Special Events for Men’s and Home at Saks Fifth Avenue, and Editor-at-Large for Valet, I have worked across the fashion industry for 25 years. Sustainability and equality matter greatly to me and factor into all aspects of my work and strategies. My personal passions are fashion and animals, and my home is filled with both.
