The Christine Report- Posts on Style & Beauty
Creating Mettalusso comes from a life-long career and passion for amazing product. After doing it for large companies, celebrities and niche brands, it was time to launch my own.
In translation, Metta means love and Lusso means luxury. Mettalusso is a platform delivering original entertainment and everyday luxury product for people and pets.
You will find the original entertainment through the Mettalusso MOMENTS series called “Mettie + Lunah’s Forever Journey”. MOMENTS are short stories featuring the lives of Mettie + Lunah Lusso.
Mettalusso is a first of kind company and brand. It is the first-ever to launch with original characters and unique products for people and pets.
We now live in the most dynamic opportunity in the history of all retail. It is an unbelievable opportunity to reach more people and connect like never before.
In my career, I have had the incredible experience working for some top brands and companies. I started in the fashion industry in Chicago and sold apparel to specialty and department stores. After relocating to Southern California, I was with Tumi Luggage and Kipling- the bags from Amsterdam known for their trend-making monkey keychain. It was an amazing experience launching the Kipling Collection into stores such as Macy’s, Nordstrom’s, Bloomingdale’s and leading specialty stores in Los Angeles. I pivoted into retail marketing and advertising with InterPublic Group, a big Fortune 500 advertising agency. Developing beauty product was next in my career, and I produced cosmetics and skincare for brands such as OPI Nails, Urban Decay, Smashbox, Suzanne Somers and Wella. I returned to Global Sales & Marketing Director with Cristophe & Denise Richards Hair Products, as the Brand Manager for Kardashian PerfectSkin and by developing the 1st makeup collection for Kat von D for Sephora; and also as serving as the Chief Marketing Officer for a patented medical skincare brand. I also hold Master’s in Business from Harvard University.
I enjoy curating Poemstar®, a creative writing site and posting on The Christine Report™, my blog for all things current on fashion and style.
