About Exposed Zippers

Exposed Zippers launched in 2011 with the intent to uncover the stories of the influential people who make fashion happen. We curate a selective group of insiders for the most unique insight into the industry and through a Q and A our audience gains access to the personal stories of designers, models, editors, retailers, stylists, bloggers among other types of influencers.


Lisa Weiss

Lisa Weiss founded Exposed Zippers in May 2011. The blog was conceived out of a desire to uncover stories behind the people who make fashion happen. In addition to managing the site Lisa is the owner of Debut, a New York based showroom representing avant-garde design talent. The showroom was a natural progression from her innovative downtown boutique of the same name. A certified personal trainer, classically trained chef and mother of three, Lisa resides with her family in New York City.

Ashley Wu

Ashley Wu joined Exposed Zippers in 2012. She fell in love with the blog’s approach of featuring behind-the-scenes stories of those who make fashion happen. With a background in fashion show production and public relations, a move to editorial was a natural transition. Ashley is responsible for day to day management of the site including content development and social media strategy. In addition to Exposed Zippers, Ashley is the founder of Read My Lips Creative, a fashion and branding consultancy. Ashley resides with her family in New York City.
