ABOUT LEIGH NEW YORK
Leigh is an apparel brand bridging vintage and contemporary silhouettes. The collection includes foundational, polished items distinguished by premium materials and subtle details. The line (pronounced “Lee”) takes its origin from the founder’s middle name, meaning “delicate.”
Based in Brooklyn, New York, Leigh began as an exploratory project in product development and strives to responsibly make meaningful clothing; through small-batch and made-to-measure development.
Founded by Morgan Johnson, the collection aims to empower people through apparel. With roots in North Carolina, Morgan's interest in textiles and design was inspired by her paternal grandmother(s), one of whom worked in a shirting factory. Learning to sew from her mom and possessing a deep love for visual arts, Morgan has honed her expertise in branding and design, working with renowned brands like Condé Nast, Opening Ceremony, and Ralph Lauren.
