Cosmo Lombino has been shaping “gritty-couture” in Los Angeles for over 30 years. A succinct confidence in his craft began with a career as a Manhattan hair stylist in the 90's. It was an era of "supermodel" confidence and bold choices. Inspired by street-art driven retailers Pat Fields, Fiorucci, and Jumpin' Jack Flash, Cosmo formulated a high-energy retail concept driven by emerging designers that made customers the “supermodels”; a store that could deliver individualized style to each shopper.
Cosmo was instrumental in the development of Hollywood’s Melrose fashion district. His love for experimental fashion and individuality earned his stores a reputation as LA's destination for festival fashion, editorial stylists, and red-carpet standouts. From the WBA Heavyweight Champion of The World, to recording artists Beyonce, Niki Minaj, and Gwen Stefani; to Oscar-winning actresses-- Cosmo’s silliness belies a honed stylist's eye that can redefine your very presence, and change everything.
