    CEO/FOUNDER

    Leah Nicole Langley-McClean is a Chicago native. Since she was young, Leah has always been very passionate about designing women’s apparel. Despite Leah’s passion for fashion, she moved to Nashville to study accounting at Tennessee State University. Leah practiced accounting for over 6 years. During this time she also continued to perfect her sewing and designing skills; creating a women’s line and doing numerous fashion shows.   Although Leah has taken a much different path she has still found a way to become an exceptional fashion designer here in Nashville

     

    Leah transitioned into bridal in 2015 while she planned for her very own wedding. 

    She is truly testament to why brides should consider custom gowns. She struggled with the decision to make her own gown or buy off the rack. She experienced dresses not fitting right, a very limited selection for her size, pushy and just down right bad customer service, and the constant reminder that due to her shape she would have to spend a pretty penny on alterations. Beyond all of this each dress that she did try on was always missing something. With that being said, it was obvious what she needed to do, so she designed and sewed a one of a kind couture gown for herself. 

     

    Since Leah’s wedding, she’s found herself wanting to stay in the bridal business. It’s one of the biggest days in a person’s life and she wants to be apart of it. She is prepared and honored to take on the responsibility of helping her brides look their absolute best on such a big and special day.
