Welcome to L’Officiel Zack! You are a true inspiration, starting at such a young age and building the empire you have today is truly great. Please share your personal story, how you started and what motivated you?
Well first off thank you very much. I grew up in a small town in southern Idaho. I was always interested in modeling. Content creation is something I started pursuing after I started skating. I always wanted to make skateboarding content or even be a pro skateboarder someday. When I was just finishing high school, TikTok was just becoming popular. I hated school, and at the time I was working 3 jobs. So I started working hard to post a broad range of content including a mix of modeling and skateboarding on social media. Eventually things started to take off and I moved to Los Angeles. Here I am now.

It’s impressive to see you as a designer. Your first collection was sure a hit, tell us about why you created your own brand.
Fashion for me was always so hard to express living in a small town. Growing up, I could never wear what I wanted to wear because I would get tons of hate. After I moved to LA, I became more confident and found the courage to start pushing myself out of my comfort zone and wearing what I wanted. After that I started my own clothing company Runaway Kid and my first launch was called “Hate is Ugly”. I believe everybody is beautiful in their own way, but hate is ugly, and that’s what inspired this collection. The design behind the streetwear line is half long sleeve tee and half short sleeve tee cut down the middle and sown together creating 2 colors and 2 arm lengths. This was inspired by a vintage thrifting company that reached out to me called Ragz revenge!
What does fashion mean to you?
Fashion has become such a big part of my life. From personal photo shoots for my social media to fashion week events and magazine covers, I’ve found a love for it. One of my favorite things to do is get styled and do photoshoots. This is how I first learned to experiment and push myself to try new things. I recently shot a campaign for Fendi and attended the Fendi show at New York Fashion Week. I absolutely loved the outfit their team chose for me to wear and I’m so grateful to be working with them.

Social media can be either good or bad. How do you deal with all the trolls or hate comments you receive on digital platforms?
Simply just not looking at them. I follow a lot of my supporters back and when you become friends, they are always at the top of the comments which helps a ton. I won’t feed into any negativity.
If not a model, content creator, social media star or fashion designer, who would be Zack Lugo, and what would your life be like?
Honestly, I’d be a pro skateboarder.
