Lisa Cantalupo's Profile

About

I come from a large Italian family of fine artists, seamstresses, designers, and chefs. I am a chocoholic, motorcycle rider, and leather lover. I am also a graduate of graduate of Massachusetts College of Art and Design where I received numerous awards of distinction for my talents such as; the Massachusetts College of Art and Design Award for Excellence in Design, the Lord & Taylor Dress Design Competition Scholarship Award, and an internship with Leslie Fay in New York City. But my greatest achievement comes with being a Mother and raising my two boys.

It was in 1991 (ug, so long ago), when I made my professional debut at The Boston Designers Collaborative Press Expo Fashion Show, showcasing my collection which ranged from swimwear and sportswear, to evening-wear and wedding gowns. It was Boston's leading fashion designer and BDC founder, Geoffrey B. Small, who said of my collection,…

I come from a large Italian family of fine artists, seamstresses, designers, and chefs. I am a chocoholic, motorcycle rider, and leather lover. I am also a graduate of graduate of Massachusetts College of Art and Design where I received numerous awards of distinction for my talents such as; the Massachusetts College of Art and Design Award for Excellence in Design, the Lord & Taylor Dress Design Competition Scholarship Award, and an internship with Leslie Fay in New York City. But my greatest achievement comes with being a Mother and raising my two boys.

It was in 1991 (ug, so long ago), when I made my professional debut at The Boston Designers Collaborative Press Expo Fashion Show, showcasing my collection which ranged from swimwear and sportswear, to evening-wear and wedding gowns. It was Boston's leading fashion designer and BDC founder, Geoffrey B. Small, who said of my collection, "very hip...very original, slick and elegant....tutto Perfetto!" and compared my work to the likes of Romeo Gigli, Blass, and Moschino. (If you would like to check out a few photographs click, http://sexyskins.blogspot.com/ and scroll all the way down.)

But it was my love for riding my motorcycle which awakened my passion for leather and put a spark in my fashion step. I purchased a few hides and designed a few leather halters which I wore to bike rallies and biker events catching the attention of both women and men. That turned the light on and I knew the next step in my fashion journey was to combine both my passions and create a line of leather halters which were not only fashionable, but functional too. Designing the line was easy, but coming up with a name for the company was not. So, I approached an online “chat group” of Harley riding motorcycle friends for help, and help they did…there were so many great names to choose from! However, it seemed to be the consensus that Sexy Skins best described the style of my Skins.

Since Sexy Skins inception in 2006, I have expanded the line of leather apparel, and developed a line of coordinating leather accessories which like my clothing, exude femininity and sensuality, but also conveys strength and masculinity. And because I personally feel better when my clothes reflect my style and fit my body correctly, I felt it was equally important to offer every Sexy Skins customer the option of customizing their Skins, so in our sister shop on Etsy, http://www.SexySkinsLeather.etsy.com, we introduced our “Made-to-Fit” Line of Leather Apparel; you choose from the different colors and types of leather we stock, we use your measurements to make your Sexy Skins, and small changes to the design are welcomed and at no additional cost. And, in January of 2012 we opened a new Etsy shop, SS Leather Outlet, http://www.SSLeatherOutlet.etsy.com, where we offer our customers great savings on discontinued Sexy Skins, samples, and sale items.

Throughout the growth of Sexy Skins I have been hired to design and create leather fashions for many, some of which have appeared on stage in front of thousands of screaming fans, and on television in front of an audience of millions. But nothing brings me more joy then being witness to the joy and excitement of a breast cancer survivor who puts on her Sexy Skins Pink Motorcycle Jacket for the very first time, or when another tells me that her Sexy Skins Leather Spirit Cuff has helped her with her battle against the disease. There is nothing more rewarding then knowing something which I have created has brought some peace and happiness into a person’s life, or has been and an object of inspiration during a tumultuous time. I am truly blessed to be doing what I am doing.

Thank you for entrusting me with your leather needs….Love and peace to you,
Lisa
