About Leah Kelly.

Leah Kelly has been making exquisite, handmade organic garments for over 40 years. Taught to hand sew and embroider by her grandmother where she grew up in Gulgong, country NSW, she has extended her flair over the years to include semi-precious stones, shells, wood and seeds to embellish her work. Leah takes on the individual desires of each customer to produce a personalised piece of wearable art that will surely become a family heirloom, as the organic fabrics Leah chooses will withstand the test of time.

Her choice of natural fibers include hemp, hemp/silk blends, silk, bamboo, pineapple fiber, banana bark; which is sourced from various regions of the world, usually produced by independent families, hence continuing the support of a sustainable fashion.

Leah designs and makes her unique organic pieces, in her completely off grid home/studio in the middle of the rainforest, promoting 100% the value of home cottage industries of Australia.

Having showcased on national and international runways, such as Eco Fashion Week and RIFTS (Regional Indigenous Fashion Textile Showcase), Leah has been recognized by Oxford Fashion Studio, UK as one of Australia’s leading fashion designers, with an invitation to showcase at Paris Fashion Week September 2020.

Leah Kelly is also a singer/songwriter in her local community and engages all who attends her unique performances. She sings and writes songs in English and Buluwai/ Djabugay (Indigenous language of the Kuranda area) having learnt this ancient language over 20 years ago. Leah is an avid supporter of the Aboriginal culture and tradition of Indigenous Australians through musical expression and thread.

A regularly commissioned designer, these unique garments are highly sought after as wedding and formal gowns.

Leah Kelly is a multi-award winning designer that is in high demand regionally, nationally and internationally, having designed for American actress/ conservationist, Daryl Hannah.
