Best piece of advice? Fake it till you make it!
Favourite coffee shop? A bit controversial for an Australian but I actually don’t drink coffee!! My favourite local café is Alimentari in Paddington which is right around the corner from my shop!
Favourite book or podcast? I recently read Shoe Dog by Phil Knight and found it super inspiring.
Beauty product you can’t live without? Beauty is the one thing that I’m such a rookie at! That’s why I can’t live without bronzer because I just bronze my whole face and I feel instantly fabulous!! 😊
Tell us a bit about yourself..
I am Lisa Seskin and I was born and raised in Sydney, Australia. I’ve grown up in the fashion industry and worked in Buying and Marketing for 10 years. In January 2019 I launched my own business, LMS, a women’s footwear brand that specialises in fashion forward, statement shoes. Owning my own business and creating something that can be worn by women all around the world has been a dream of mine since I was young. As all Australians do, I love to travel and hop around, I lived in London for a short period of time a few years ago and I spend a lot of time in LA and New York for my business.
What does style mean to you?
While it may be cliché, I live by the statement that you can’t buy style. Stepping out of a large corporation and becoming a small business owner has made me realise that I don’t need to keep buying new clothes to be stylish. I can recycle, reuse and put things together well and I’ll still be stylish like I’ve always been. I also strongly believe that confidence is your best accessory. If you can walk into any room owning your look you’ve already sold half the crowd.
Are there any causes or charities that you support?
I strongly care for the welfare of animals, and is something I have always liked to support.
What piece of RIXO do you love or have your eye on and why?
I am obsessed with the prints (like my Rose Ombre Paisley dress!) and particularly love the mixed print pieces. I loved what Rixo did for LFW and how they continue to empower woman everywhere by using everyday woman to represent the brand.
