EMERGING DESIGNER

Laura Pimentel

L
aLucca is a distinctive well-crafted line of the finest in leather accessories. LaLucca's designs are easily recognizable by the vibrant colors, attention to detail, and high quality leathers.
Born in the Dominican Republic and trained in Europe and the U.S., head designer Laura Pimentel is the brain-child behind the fabulous LaLucca Accessories line. Laura was destined to become an extraordinary designer given either of her initial choices in careers. First she studied in Barcelona where she enrolled in an interior design program from which she earned a Masterís Degree. She then moved back to the Dominican Republic to pursue her career. Laura realized that Interior Design did not make her happy and eventually she decided to come to America to make jewelry.

She began classes at the Art Institute in Miami, Florida. She enrolled in the Accessory Design Program to study jewelry design. It must have been fate, because within that program was a handbag class, and for Laura, thatís when it all started. She instantly fell in love with making handbags. She always loved handbags, but never knew that she could create them. As part of her class for her final project, she made a line of handbags that was showcased at Funkshion, Fashion Week in Miami Beach. Lauraís designs won the Best Accessories category. She finally found her true passion! The rest, as they say, is history!
I love to create unique designer handbags that convey bold statements.
– Laura Pimentel, Head Designer

I really like the new look of the MyCloset. Anyone else?
The headband has YOLO stitched in. You only live once! I thought it was cool.
