Lisa Teng Studios dedicates to the creation and design of footwear, small accessories and other lifestyle products. During Lisa’s journey as a maker and designer, she lived in Milan and London to acquire new techniques to formulate her personal trademark. In Milan, she developed the sensibility and flair for fashion design. In London, she gained her skills and knowledge through studying footwear and working for a leather artist and designer. Other than designing and creating products, she offers workshops to individuals and corporate companies. Conducting workshops allows her to create awareness for the time it takes to create products through traditional yet at the same time, innovative craftsmanship.
Lisa Teng Studios uses vegetable tanned (and some components, reclaimed) leather in these series of products (Alpar), designed and created in Singapore. These series of footwear are made to order, to get a close fit to the foot, prevent further wastage of materials and mostly hand-stitched in-house. Most of the time, the products are mostly natural based, so yes to natural based materials, no to faux leather (known as PU leather). Through creating these footwear collection, there is a mix of novel and classical construction techniques. Silhouettes and style of this collection are classic with a slight modern twist, allowing you to effortlessly transition from day to night. Products are under development constantly while taking on customised orders and collaborating with other makers and designers
