leeâmeis a brooklyn based company, founded in Montreal, focused on providing a fresh perspective to modest fashion.
(pronounced: lee- ahm)
With a decisive eye and love of slouchy elegance, co-founders Ayelet (pronounced ah-yell-et) Bender Gottesman and Darcie Lamson present a contemporary vision of modest dressing.Each cultivate a wide-range of experience in the fashion and tech industry. Ayelet & Darcie met at McGill University. Ayelet, having only recently adopted the laws of modesty, and Darcie, not bound by religion, approach modest fashion from a unique and creative standpoint.
It is extremely hard to find a brand that consistently creates clothing that fits religious modesty standards and is suitable for professional women working corporate, or any other job that requires them to look 'suited.' We're talking clothing that is suitable for an office or university environment (or anything in between) and at the same time, comfortable and effortless.
Up until now, there has been no in between. Nothing comfortable but cool, chic but laid back. Nothing basic.
Both Ayelet & Darcie believe that modest clothing should be stylish and functional and women should have a free range of motion in their garments.
The leeâme aesthetic is minimal and relaxed.
WHAT INSPIRES US?
leeâme is inspired by the dynamic and creative energy of global fashion. We love the challenge of providing minimal and relaxed modest clothing with a fashion edge. Why? Cause life’s too short to wear boring sh*t.
