Interview with MOB Designer Leah McSweeney!!

16 July 2008, 20.19 | Posted in Design, Fashion | No comments »

HighSnobette has always been a major booster of M.O.B./MTTM and its head designer Leah McSweeney. The belief has always been that her talent, her vision AND her force of personalilty are unmatched when it comes all that’s up and coming in women’s fashion. And after spotting the images from Bread & Butter of her first cut and sewn line, we knew it was time for a catch-up chat.

At Leah’s studio/home, where three employees (another two who arrived after we wrapped things up) were hard at work, we talked about her near-term plans to make the business official with a move to an office in the Empire State Building, as well as the stresses of expanding M.O.B in a big way while also starting a family (and how much it sucks how women always get asked questions about their babies but men never do!) A LOT of what we talked about has to stay off the record (sorry!), but as far as her plans with shoes go, I am allowed to say that if you liked her Collette/Reebok collabo, there are even bigger shoe things in the works that are even more draw-dropping.

MOB1 Interview with MOB Designer Leah McSweeney!!

^^A sneak peek at Fall/Holiday, which includes denim, leggings, outerwear, crewnecks, fiited caps, bags and jewelry. Leah says so far she likes the crew necks most of all.

HS: You’re moving your business to the Empire State Building. Why?

Leah: It’s time to get real deal. I’ve gone from working out of my Grandmother’s apartment that I got evicted from to working from my own apartment and it’s time to move on and take things to the next level.

HS: Bread & Butter was your first trade show. What’d you think?

Leah: It was great. We thought we’d have to educate people on the brand in Europe, but there was more recognition than we expected. But I’m not a trade show person so I was bored. And it was weird to have people touching my things.

HS: When does the collection ship and who gets it?

Leah: We deliver fall September 1st, and we’ll work with the same kind of good stores that we’ve always worked with.

HS: How was it putting together your first cut and sewn collection?

Leah: The designing part is fun, but the production part is not fun. That part was really fucking hard. And stressful.

M.O.B. designer Leah McSweeney is at it again, providing her loyalists with fresh, new ways to crack wise on the world. This time it’s a classic profile, made brazen by one of M.O.B.’s most clever tag lines to date: "Men Are the New Women." Jaws will be jibber-jabbing over these!
