Leo Studio Design
Leo Macina was born Bari in 1985. At eighteen, he moved to Milan to study fashion and graphic design at the Marangoni Institute. When he returned to Puglia, he had the opportunity to work with an old leather maker and master shoemaker where he grew interested in craftsmanship and natural materials. Leo combined his passion for artisanship and fashion and began making prototypes from his sketches, using his home land Puglia, which is so in tune with nature, as his inspiration. Later, he started his adventure by developing a small collection and in January 2014, he launched the Leo Studio Design line, which consisted of just ten bags. The success of this first small collection prompted him to expand and develop a complete collection composed of RTW, footwear and accessories. The Leo Studio Design brand continues to grow, with the Spring Summer 2017 collection having been presented during Milan Fashion Week.
