We now live in the most dynamic opportunity in the history of all retail. It is an unbelievable opportunity to reach more people and connect like never before.
I created Mettalusso so that the message of love and luxury could be spread through my passion for connecting through beauty and fashion. This is the meaning of the company name. Metta means love. Lusso is Italian for luxury.
Mettalusso is a 1st of kind company. It is the first to create original entertainment + everyday luxury product for people and pets.
You will find the original entertainment through the Mettalusso series called “Mettie + Lunah’s Forever Journey”. Mettie + Lunah Lusso represent the company’s name. The are best friends and cousins. Their stories are our stories.
In my career, I have had the incredible experience working for some top brands and companies. I started in the fashion industry in Chicago and sold apparel to specialty and department stores. After relocating to Southern California, I was with Tumi Luggage and Kipling- the bags from Amsterdam known for their adorable monkey keychain. It was an amazing experience launching the Kipling Collection into stores such as Macy’s, Nordstrom’s, Bloomingdale’s and some of the hippest specialty stores in Los Angeles. I grew into retail marketing and advertising with InterPublic Group, a big Fortune 500 advertising agency. Learning how to develop beauty product was next, and I produced cosmetics and skincare for brands such as OPI Nails, Urban Decay, Smashbox, Suzanne Somers and Wella. My career continued to grow by becoming the Global Sales & Marketing Director for Cristophe & Denise Richards Hair Products, the Brand Manager for Kardashian PerfectSkin and by developing the 1st makeup collection for Kat von D for Sephora; and also as serving as the Chief Marketing Officer for a patented medical skincare brand. I also hold Master’s in Business from Harvard University.
I enjoy curating Poemstar®, a creative writing site and posting on The Christine Report™, my blog for all things current on fashion and style.
