Designer Lesha lovingly tailors each piece using premium cotton fabric in vivid colors and eye-catching patterns. Large flowers, dots and other retro motifs are among the fabric patterns available.

Lesha’s designs reflect her attention to detail and flair for fashion. Despite a history in art and architecture, Lesha opted to turn her sewing hobby and passion for deluxe fabrics into a career. Customers are pleased by her successful transition into fashion when collaborating with Lesha during the creative process.

Customers feel an unparalleled sexy sophistication when donning the authentic vintage reproductions from Audrey and Grace. The versatile dresses are worn with or without petticoats and may be tailored to fit any size.

Pieces may be dressed up for formal events or embellished with casual accessories for less formal occasions. The unique dresses appeal to all fashion senses.
