Tony Pagliuso

To say Tony Pagliuso has a thing for shoes is an understatement. After all, the vice president and general manager of Barneys New York at the Shoppes at the Palazzo got his start as a salon shoe buyer for Nordstrom, and moved up the ranks to store director at Salvatore Ferragamo before becoming a store director for Bullocks Department Stores. But in 1994, he landed at Barneys New York, starting as the men’s shoe department manager in Beverly Hills and then moving up to group manager. His years at Barneys have taken him from the tailor shop, to cosmetics to the bridal salon. And then Barneys New York came to Las Vegas, and Pagliuso was more then enthusiastic about becoming the vice president and general manager of the store that blends its own sense of humor with high fashions.
