Like the world has opened us to life, Leatheron has opened life onto leather.
A timeless, genuine and unique design, work it from day to night, cafe to bar inspired by looking to be unique, ahead of the trend and a fashion savvy.
Tommy Gee, founder of Leatheron Sydney established his own business in 2013 after many years in the retail industry managing several big brand names. Tommy described fashion as a platform to exchange imagination and create reality.
He realised he wanted to become a fashion designer after he felt a great sense of happiness and excitement having designed and wore his first unique jacket at the age of 12 years old. He then realised he wanted to develop a garment that was ‘timeless, genuine, and unique’. His dream is to create the first globally recognised leather fashion brand…hence Leatheron was born.
Tommy’s favourite fashion designers are Alexander Wang, Donatella Versace, Donna Karan, Camilla and Marc. His inspirations are anywhere from the shows and movies he has seen, dreams and images that capture his tone, and life experiences that give him ideas to construct a particular piece. His mantra is simple; to keep an open mind and see things that could inspire him a great look. He loves to challenge himself, pushing contrasting ideas and looks to create a unique feeling for his customers when Leatheron is worn.
Leatheron has appeared in several photo shoots and fashion shows. “I focus on preparing a lot for a photo shoot, I love to have the team on the same page and share the vision with them. I make sure that I explain my idea in details and know how to convey that” Tommy explained.
“As for a show, I want to aim a rehearsal and really plan for the worst because a show is live, you want your team and models to be prepared if something goes wrong” he added.
The feeling and reaction of his customers are what matters to him the most, especially when they wear his exclusive design.
His advice for aspiring fashion designers is never give up!
