How do you take the fun creative stuff you loved doing as a kid and turn it into a business.
Leah Kirsch, an artist and clothing designer, shares the inner workings of starting a brand out of her apartment in the Bronx in 2013, closing it down, navigating drug culture, taking creative risks, and all the emotions that came with it.
Today, Leah Kirsch is a brand for the bold. Influenced by men’s streetwear and infused with an intuitive feminine touch, everything is designed with a duality in mind: sexy and strong, cool and capable, tender and tough.
This is a refreshing and much needed conversation around the messy middle of building sustainable business around something you love.
