London based designer, Leanne Beckford established label LEE REINA in 2015 after graduating from the University of East London where she showcased her graduate collection at Graduate Fashion Week in London’s Truman Brewery in 2014.
Before launching LEE REINA, Leanne worked for designers Nasir Mazhar and Christopher Shannon where continued to explore her love and develop her skills of pattern cutting and learning the trade.
In 2016, Leanne was selected to work with her former university on a project for Superdry X Idris Elba.
LEE REINA is a contemporary womenswear label that is inspired by confident and fearless women who embody the ‘tomboy’ culture while exuding sex appeal. LEE REINA illustrates women in roles often associated with men. Oversized, utility proportions and bold silhouettes in uniformed two pieces and boiler suits that are often combined with flirty hand-crafted ruffles and pleats.
The label is influenced by Leanne’s upbringing within London’s urban culture, travel, old-skool Hip Hop and R&B, family values and modern art and architecture.
All pieces are carefully crafted by Leanne in her London studio.
