Erickson Beamon 2013 Spring/Summer Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

Erickson Beamon made up of Karen & Eric Erickson and Vicki Beamon showed at the 2013 Spring/Summer Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Usually collaborating with top designer with their jewelry line, they have expanded their brand into the clothing line. It is a sexy, modern line that combines lots of textures and textiles and fibers on the cutting edge of fashion. The make-up, the poses of the models on furniture dollies, the accessories all added to the edge,  making it a very interesting presentation.

Here are some highlights from it:

Rocco Gaglioti is a self-made triple threat -- creator, producer and host. He founded the televised on-line fashion magazine, FashionNewsLive.com, which almost overnight has become ranked as one of the top ten out of the 150 million fashion and celebrity sites around the world. He hit the ground running in 2004 with his very first interview on the red carpet with Anna Nicole Smith. Not bad for a rookie. And the fact that she tried to make out with him didn’t even scare him away from pursuing his lifelong dream of working in the fashion industry. But making dreams come true takes more than good looks and charm. It takes hard work and determination as well. Even though he makes it look easy, Rocco came from humble, though very loving beginnings. He learned to communicate with his hands through sign language before he could even speak because of his mother, who was born deaf. This naturally gave him a lifelong appreciation for the underdog, along with the advantage of a much more enhanced “sixth sense”. Being in the right place at the right time doesn’t hurt either. And so it was a Miami model scout with an obvious eye for spotting talent who advised Rocco in 1994 to try his hand at modeling. Miami quickly turned into Milan and Paris, which turned into New York and the rest is history as they say. Within a short time, he was signed with Boss and Zoli. Rocco wanted more though, and it was when he picked up a camera in Germany that he discovered his own eye for photography. He was a natural behind the camera, impressed several major publishers and soon after secured gigs from Maxim Magazine and Ocean Drive. But the model-turned-photographer still wasn’t satisfied. In 2000 he moved to Orlando, founded his own production company, RLG Productions, Inc., and set up shop at the back lot at Universal Studios. His vision for a unique televised fashion magazine format was soon picked up by the now defunct UPN and maintained a strong presence on the network until its demise. He quickly transitioned his vision into an online media empire, which continues to grow and thrive today as he provides a steady stream of compelling entertainment and fashion content for millions of fashionistas around the world. The 6’3” former model may dress from head to toe in Marc Jacobs and Gucci, but that is not what makes him fashion’s latest “It Guy”. It’s more than likely the combination of his soulfulness, his uncanny ability for discerning the next big thing and his beguiling quintessence that landed him on the pop culture radar and will undoubtedly make him a household name. And with his eye on television or radio as a next step, the rising star is certainly not going to slow down anytime soon. Rocco currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
