Leather & Lace

Leather & Lace were a female freestyle/dance trio from the 80s that consisted of Arlene Ramirez, Lottie "Lottie Dah" Lachica and Miriam Mercado. The trio was formed by Lottie, who helped develop the first Latina girl group to introduce freestyle music.
In 1985, they released their first single "Tender Heart (Do What's Right for Me)" which didn't appear to make the Billboard charts.
A year later, Leather & Lace released two more singles: "Let Your Body Go" and "Rock Me Shake Me" which also didn't chart. After that, the group faded into obscurity.

These days, Lottie continues to be active in the music business and resides in New York. She has been a radio host, worked in artists management and obtained a certificate in Digital Media Arts as a sound engineer. She is also the C.E.O. of her own production company Beauty & Brains Productionz and plans on operating her own recording studio & record label.

Arlene and Miriam released a few solo singles in the late '80s/early '90s, but it is unknown what they are up to today.
