Ladies are going ‘ga-ga’ over Leanne Brooke’s latest hand-finished luxury lingerie designs.
And they’re made exclusively in Leeds!
The talented designer uses goat skin suede and Japanese leather as well as Chantilly lace and stretch silk for her underwear creations.
Each hand-made beauty can cost up to £300.
Leanne, 23, who studied contour and fashion design, counts celebrities such as US popstar Lady Gaga, homegrown singing trio Sugarbabes, and TV stars Alesha Dixon and Holly Willoughby among her clients from her previous underwear venture.
The sassy lingerie creator is now the darling of celebrity fashion – where underwear such as corsets are often worn as outerwear – and is now head designer for newly established Roundhay based-firm Something Wicked.
Head designer Leanne previously designed for Obey My Demand.
She said: “We have been overwhelmed and inundated with orders from around the world and we are struggling to keep up with demand from countries as far away as Dubai and New York and are now seeking skilled machinists to help us make the goods and keep the manufacturing here.
“The lingerie is really beautiful. I have designed items such as basques and bodices for Lady Gaga and other celebrities but now hope my skills can be appreciated at Something Wicked.”
The company was founded by husband and wife team Louise and Aaron Seager and since showcasing their collection at a trade fashion show, have received orders from all over the world including Dubai, New York, Australia and Copenhagen.
Aaron added: “We are on a desperate hunt for the talented machinists who can make these wonderful items for us and keep the manufacturing in Britain.
“It is proving difficult to find skilled lingerie machinists further north and we are finding that most northern-based machinists are upholstery trained, whereas lingerie experience is much more specialist and virtually non existent now. The contour design courses are based either in Leicester or London.”
The designs by the premium brand start at £55 and go up to £369. See www.somethingwicked.co.uk.
