Lisa Hu wants to make St. Louis sexy. Not only in a fashionable way, but with a desirable economic engine.
Hu’s posh, eco-friendly handbag company Lux & Nyx has already been featured in national and local fashion magazines, and the St. Louis venture has only been around for about a year and a half. That’s partly because of her connection to the St. Louis Fashion Fund.
She’s a Fashion Lab resident at the nonprofit. She takes meetings, designs and interfaces with others in the fashion and business world, all at the fashion incubator. Its purpose is to give emerging designers access to collaboration and production. It also promotes education and community through fashion. Check out the full story.
