Hi! I’m Leila. I was born and raised in Cali, Colombia, South America, and still feel like an outsider in the United States. Yes, I’m bilingual in English and Spanish. My last career was in theater and while I loved being on stage, I retired when I had my first kid. I have two middle school kids, a lovely partner, a sweet Barbet, and a kitty who, let’s face it, allows us all to live in his house. Aaand now we have a new kitten, Ramen, who loves to cuddle and pounce at the laser pointer.

I love connecting with people, and I need my work to be meaningful. Bridal fashion, while fun to design and make, is only enjoyable to me because of the people that wear it.

I want you to feel heard.

I want you to feel beautiful and empowered in your own skin.

I encourage you to speak up.

What I do is about more than your dress.
