Read what Lea's clients have to say.
Lea is an amazing designer, with a fabulous eye for wedding dresses. I was discouraged after going to traditional bridal places, and couldn't find the sleek, elegant design I was looking for. After hearing through friends about Lea, I wandered into her shop, and she took the time to collaborate a design that fit the dress I couldn't describe or design myself! She has the design for both traditional and a flair for the interesting. I wanted to incorporate originality into my dress and she was able to go above and beyond my dreams! Thank you Lea for being so easy to work with and such an inspirational designer." - Cheryl, on YELP.
If you want to feel vibrant yet feminine, Lea's designs are for you! Lea will personally work with how you want the design to fit YOUR body...to only accentuate your positive!' - Jan Yanehiro
If you are looking for gorgeous custom designs, Lea in San Anselmo is the place. After much searching to no avail at bridal boutiques, the mall, etc. for a mother-of-the-bride dress for my mom, we made an appointment at Lea on the recommendation of a friend. We were both taken with Lea's sincere, intuitive and creative approach to dress-making. Lea is totally dedicated to the integrity of the design and the materials used and to customer satisfaction. She goes to great lengths to make the garment to the customer's exact specifications and dedicates time and personal attention to each customer. She really listens to the customer's thoughts, opinions, and wishes and takes them to heart. In addition to the mother-of the-bride dress, I ordered a custom-made rehearsal dinner dress from Lea, and it is by far the most flattering cut on any dress I have ever owned. I only wish I would have known about Lea when I was shopping for a wedding dress." - Brittany, on YELP.
During the last decade I have been wearing only Lea's clothes; everything else has disappeared from my wardrobe. Fluid, ethereal, sensual, refined, luxurious...Lea's sense of color is amazing. She selected the fabrics with the eye on an artist, often layering transparent fabrics to create an original palette. Her designs are timeless.: - Isabel Allende
One of the great pleasures is introducing a friend to the special experience of being outfitted by Lea! From the time that I had my mother-of-the-bride dress designed by Lea, to season after season of having exactly the right clothes for any occasion, I have been thrilled to shop at Lea Couture. Lea's clothes are custom fitted but end up costing no more (in some cases much less) than off the rack outfits that you see everywhere. And dealing with Lea, a lovely woman of as much heart as she has style, is a total delight!" - Margie, on YELP.
I have been invited to the Academy Awards for the past 5 years, and every year have worn a Lea gown.... I wouldn't ask anyone else to dress me that night. I trust her completely, and I always feel beautiful and feminine in her clothes! She listens to what I like and creates the most beautiful dresses that fit me perfectly and that cost a lot less than what I would pay for an off the rack gown at Neiman's or Bloomingdales. There is no one quite like Lea, she's a secret treasure in San Anselmo." - Juliette, on YELP.
Lea designs for every body type and for every occasion. I first met her 20 years ago when a friend recommended her and I have never had to go shopping elsewhere again!!! She has made me every kind of outfit from sportswear to formal evening clothes and everything in between. People actually stop me on the street to find out where my clothes are from--even my most casual ones!!! She loves her clients to be comfortable in her clothes and encourages them to feel their bodies are beautiful. Her artistry is evident from the moment you walk into her delightful shop." - Shelley, on YELP
I just want to give a shout out to all of you Travelers. I was recently in Europe for 5 weeks. I hate taking too many clothes with me and decided to visit Lea to have her make a travel wardrobe for me. Her bamboo fabric clothing is ideal for travel. She helped me coordinate all of the pieces and it all worked beautifully. The minimal wrinkles in the fabric disappeared when hung out of given a little steam in the bathroom. I was able to pack in a carry on size bag . The clothing was all reasonably priced especially when everything was custom fit. Thanks to Lea I felt like a well dressed traveler. " - Suzanne, on YELP.
