Los Angeles native Leslie Corpuz started her career at Japanese luxury brand Horiyoshi the Third – at the time carried by Harvey Nichols, Barney's, Browns, and Luisa Via Roma. As a Production Manager for their in-house denim and domestic design, she learned the technical aspects of fits and washes and worked closely with her counterparts to create and deliver high-quality products without delays. With her knowledge and understanding of denim, Leslie was acquired by Forever 21 to work on their import production. In 2013, she was contacted by Nasty Gal, founded by #GIRLBOSS author Sophia Amuroso, with an opportunity to expand her production career not only in denim but in tops, bottoms, one pieces, and outerwear. With her keen eye for fashion and eccentric style, she segued into Merchandising/Buying. Leslie moved internally within the company and has built herself as the Assistant Buyer for swimwear, intimates and loungewear. Within her two and a half years at Nasty Gal she has worked on key collections like the re-launch of Nasty Gal Denim and the Courtney Love Valentine's Day Collection

Leslie also serves as the Fashion Editor of the independent bi-annual print publication SUSPEND Magazine, created as a desire to support and build with local emerging talent in streetwear, music, and the arts. It publishes only original content commissioned by its staff and correspondents. When she isn’t at Nasty Gal or producing shoots for SUSPEND, Leslie continues to expand her portfolio as a freelance fashion wardrobe stylist working with clients such as Hudson Jeans, The Hundreds, Hayley Kiyoko, Daye Jack, Christina Santini, Arnelle Lozada, Warm Brew, DJ Lezlee, and more. In her spare time, she enjoys watching documentaries and cuddling with her rescue dachshund-pitbull puppy, Hash Brown.
