Hi! I’m Leila (She/They). 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 first 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 wife, Amanda, a sweet Barbet, an old man cat, 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. Wedding 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 empowered in your own skin.
I encourage you to speak up.
It’s about more than what you wear, but let’s nail down those details to make a splash as you walk in your wedding.
