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 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 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 eveningwear 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.

Since Sexy Skins inception in 2006, I have expanded the line of leather apparel, and developed a line of coordinating leather accessories. But it wasn't until recently when my work began to take a different path as I began to explore another side of my creativity. A sort of private journey where a spiritual awakening took place as I gave my soul permission to explore. My latest designs are evidence of this deeper side. I hope you love my newest creations as much as I do.

Thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about me and the evolution of my Skins.

Love and peace,
Lisa
