COLLECTION INSPIRATION FOR MBFWCT
Superheroes are my inspiration. I designed a collection that could transform day to night, and back to day. Clothes that with enough “swing” to fly you out the door to drop the kids at school, with enough “flare” to sweep you through a hostage negotiation. Jackets and tailoring to win you the million dollar contract in the boardroom, as well as award you everyones gaze in the ballroom. In a world where every one and thing could do with a hero to help them out, these clothes were deigned to conquer the world and look effortlessly good doing it.
Leigh Schubert started her own signature label in 2002 – after years of working in the commercial retail and manufacturing industry. She has since she has been awarded many accolades, and her collections shown over the years at the various South African fashion weeks have all been critically acclaimed.
She remains the only South African designer to have shown at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week in 2009 and 2010, and was hand selected as 1 of ten designers to show at a once of installation show alongside designers such as Akira Isogowa in Sydney.
In 2012 she was awarded the honour of designing the Opening Ceremony kit for the South African athletes at the 2012 London Olympics and ParaOlympics.
