The Story Behind Our Shirts
The first Leylie shirt debuted in 2011 when designer Leylie Aghili found herself craving a new creative outlet. Having recently opened her first multi-label store location, she wanted to make something exclusive to the store; as a long time lover of button-downs, she made a small run of a basic shirt in one fabrication. Within days, that shirt sold out and soon she found herself knee-deep in designing and manufacturing her own line of shirting and blouses.
A decade later, Leylie continues to design with a “buy now, wear now” mentality and a woman-on-the-go sensibility.
