Leo Macina, born in Apulia in 1985, studied fashion in Milan. He then worked in Apulia with a leather craftsman, which ignited his love of natural materials. He developed a small collection inspired by Apulia’s landscape and in January 2014 launched the ten bags that make Leo Studio Design. Success has driven him to develop a complete collection of ready-to-wear, footwear and accessories. The Leo Studio Design brand is growing with the Spring/Summer 2017 collection, introduced during Fashion Week in Milan. Leo Studio Design is one of the five finalists of the CNMI Green Carpet Talent Competition, part of the first edition of the Green Carpet Fashion Awards, Italia.
