Me By Lee (MBL) is a small batch and one of a kind boutique for women of all sizes. We are dedicated to providing upscale and everyday designs for women who want to dress like they have a custom tailor without the tailored made price tag.
MBL is designed to release collections every 60 days, as well as limited edition styles, defying traditional fashion calendars. The utilization of locally sourced, genuine Ankara fabrics, and sustainable fibers is always at the core of the design process and oftentimes determines the style direction of the collection.
Me By Lee was inspired by Alishia’s love of sewing, passed down by her mother and grandmother. She started off by altering the clothes she had access to, often giving hand me- downs a reviving. This matured to Alishia making her own items for special occasion and work. She sold her first piece in a local department store when she was stopped by another customer who had to have the piece she was wearing. Alishia sold the piece off her back and started the process of honing her skill to sell items in larger quantities. Me By Lee was born several years later with the focus of giving women the opportunity to buy one of a kind and small batch designs that are comfortable, easy to care for and can be styled in many ways. Our mission is to continue to create clothes that move with you, add to your WOW factor so you look as unique as you are.
By producing in small batches, we are able to avoid excessive waste and overproduction. With offering an online boutique experience to our clients, we keep our inventory and overhead cost low. Everything is developed and manufactured in-house, thereby reducing our footprint and passing savings along to our consumer. Additional benefits that result from creating a completely vertical business model are quality control, As we expand we want to continue to provide US based jobs and higher wages for employees. In short, less waste, smarter production, and quality product.
