LookBooks Interviews Rocco!


Lookbooks.com recently interviewed our very own Rocco Leo Gaglioti for their site! The one-on-one interview includes the story behind Fashion News Live, memorable experiences, future plans for FNL, and more!

“If your name is relevant in fashion, there’s a good chance he’s caught you on camera. If you attended New York Fashion Week in recent years, you likely saw him charming guests with mic in hand. His name is Rocco Leo Gaglioti, and he’s founder, host and executive producer of Fashion News Live.

Recently I spoke with Rocco, asking him about his company and how we got his start. He was kind enough to offer the following thoughts.

Tell me the story of your company. How did it start?

I had a business plan and after showing it to a friend, he said why don’t you turn it into a TV segment. I pitched a TV treatment to UPN and they bought it. It came on after America’s Next Top Model. Eventually UPN merged with another TV station, so I put my show online. It became Fashion News Live.

I moved to LA because that’s where my agent said I needed to be. When I showed my mom one episode, I pressed play and realized there was no closed caption. It clicked, and Fashion News Live in ASL was born. I have a professional translator who goes with me now.”

I am absolutely in love with these unisex weather proof boots by Roma. These boots sell from a hybrid company called Roma Provisions that combines business with charity. For every pair sold in the U.S–Roma For All— gives a pair to a child in need in parts of eastern and central Europe. How fab is that!??

First Look: Custo Fall 2011

Inspiration for the Collection

“As the start of a new decade, 2011 is a great time for renewal and change, for breaking new ground to shake up the form and content of things.

Through work with textures, handmade details, a totally new colour palette and graphics that evolve but preserve their DNA, a whole new set of results is achieved in the FALL-WINTER 2011-12 collection from CUSTO BARCELONA.”

The collection is divided into four themed groups:


One of the sources of inspiration for this collection is a reinterpretation of the military look, put through a ‘sweet’ filter.

Texture Doll

From B-movie grunge to Camden boho and from rebel undergrads to goth Lolitas. These girls are rich kids that behave badly, unkempt, uncaring, sure of themselves and of being different.


This group features the three-dimensional aspects of the graphics and the fabrics used. Few pieces transmit a message of such marked coherence and Custo personality. A language of its own, with elements designed to work autonomously, enhanced by combinations of stunning, unusual colours.


Behind every collection is a great song, a powerful cultural fragment with a touch of the rebellious.
