Cecilia Perdomo, director and founder of Lulepe, has a degree in Advertising and has worked for more than 8 years as Brand Manager for several very well known brands. However, design has always been her true passion: “ I have always been attached to design”, she said. “From interior to industrial to fashion design”. Her intense enthusiasm towards art helped her to start her own company “Lulepe”, a project based in interior design where she creates unique and one of a kind pieces. “The process was very organic,” she said. “ I started designing pieces for my home and, suddenly, it became a larger project until now that it has became my personal business”.
Art plays an important role in her life and she strongly believes in the influence this has on her way of living. She is a contemporary art collector and never misses an art fair. Among her favorites are Frieze Art Fair, Art Basel, Independent and FIAC. She also shared with us her favorite galleries: Hauser & Wirth, David Zwirner, Marian Goodman, Omr, labor, and as a conceptual artists she admires the work of Stefan Brüggemann.
Sports are an essential part of her life. She loves CrossFit, yoga and Pilates, which are the most important energy boosters of her day. Cecilia loves to learn new things constantly. She believes in the importance of nurturing the spiritual essence and that’s why she is currently taking courses in Buddhism and meditation. Her ultimate achievement is her son Luke and for Cecilia, fashion and design are a way of expression. “In both you can be as creative as your mind allows you to”, she said. “We always have extern inspirations and influences which will nurture and give more value to our creation”.
We defined her style as casual, Boho and eclectic and, for her, every woman who is true to her style and personality is one to admire. “ A women that can reinvent herself without losing her essence”, she said. “Someone that has no interest pretending to be someone else ”. Her oldest piece is a Chanel flap bag that belonged to her grandmother and the next piece she will add to her wardrobe is a fridge skirt from Isabel Marant.
The Fancy Archive is a great fan of Cecilia Perdomo´s designs. Throughout Lulepe she has created unique pieces that are more than just decorative elements, pieces that are art and have an actual valuable meaning.
