ABOUT

Madison Leiren

 
 

the designer

Madison Leiren’s oeuvre includes ethereal wedding gowns, stunning quinceanera dresses, swimwear for prominent calendar shoots, and delicate lingerie, and ready-to-wear designs, all requiring utmost precision in her work. She prides herself in creating her designs with challenging fabrics, nuanced detailed hand work, and accentuated silhouettes that mean garments that are anything but conventional.

 

Leiren’s creative vision grows from the simple philosophy that fashion should accentuate the body, help women shine from within, and realize her true beauty inside and out. The quality of the designs is what Madison Leiren believes every woman deserves to experience and should expect. Each piece is made with uncompromising attention to detail and care.
