Meet our Founder

Welcome to the LYC Experience

I'M LISA AND I AM THE FOUNDER & CEO OF LAUNCH YOUR COLLECTION AND THE AUTHOR OF THE BOOK, BECOMING A FASHION DESIGNER (WILEY)

Launch Your Collection Bespoke is based in Raleigh, North Carolina and is led by our founder & CEO, Lisa Springsteel Dupré, who is a 19-year New York fashion industry veteran. She has worked at the headquarters of Ralph Lauren Corporation, Marc Jacobs, Sean John, J. Mendel, PVH Corp., Banana Republic, and J. Crew and she is the author of the book, Becoming a Fashion Designer (Wiley), which published worldwide in 2013, and was translated in two languages -- Mandarin in 2015 and Arabic in 2019.

Described as the 'fashion bible' by celebrity fashion designer Randolph Duke, Becoming a Fashion Designer is the definitive go-to resource for any aspiring fashion designer. No other fashion career book contains as many original interviews from top designers and industry insiders, including Manolo Blahnik, Reem Acra, Stuart Weitzman, Daymond John (Shark Tank, ABC), Ralph Rucci, Dennis Basso, Anna Sui, celebrity stylist and t.v. personality Robert Verdi, Peter Som, Pamella Roland, Kay Unger, and many more, who impart insider advice and invaluable insight. Front cover illustration, chapter images, and various images throughout the book were provided by world renowned fashion illustrator Izak Zenou. Some images were provided by fashion photographer and t.v. personality Nigel Barker on behalf of designer Pamela Roland. Foreword was written by designer Nanette Lepore.

While working at Ralph Lauren Corporation, Lisa was one of the few who had the honor of being in design meetings with Ralph and learned directly from of the most successful fashion designers of all time. She was also personally hired by Sean Combs to be the Fabric Director for his Sean John Fall 2008 New York Fashion Week Show, while simultaneously being filmed alongside him for the MTV documentary, If I Were King. She worked directly with visionary and founder Gilles Mendel at J. Mendel, sourcing fabric for four seasonal runway collections per year, all wholesale accounts, and custom celebrity orders. She hand selected the fabric for the gowns for First Lady Melania Trump and for Teri Hatcher's custom made gown that she wore to the 2005 Emmy Awards, for her nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in Desperate Housewives.
