Lisa Hu is the founder of Lux & Nyx, www.luxandnyx.com, it is pronounced “Lucks and Nix”. At Lux & Nyx, they design luxury, eco-friendly, functional handbags for the modern woman, who is going places and trying to make a difference in the world. After spending over a decade in the corporate world and launching her own business, Lisa understands the needs on-the-go females because that’s who she was, it’s who she is and will be. Slowing down is not in her vocabulary. She is passionate about designing products that help women do more and achieve more through innovative and functional designs. She believes that one shouldn’t have to substitute function for luxury and vice versa. The name Lux & Nyx comes from the Greek words meaning “light” and “night.” According to Hu, “It’s a representation of a transitional period, whether it’s a physical change in time or an analogy for life changes.” This transition was marked by Hu’s step out of the corporate financial world into fashion design.
With a passion for uplifting and empowering women to be their best, mandy loves working with people and growing a team of go-getter women.
