I hope you like getting compliments

because wearing our dresses, you’ll be smothered in them

Sarah Carson, Founder of Leota

Welcome to Leota!

Leota makes easy to wear printed dresses for everyone.  You never have to wear a dress, but stick with us and you’ll be happy you did!

Flattering, Colorful, Effortless.

Sarah Carson named the line after her great-grandmother Leota; we believe in strong matriarchs, good manners, working hard, and dressing the part.

These are the tenets that guide our process and our product at Leota:

We love art

Our dresses lead with bold prints that are hand-painted in house.  Art, pattern, and color are everywhere at Leota.

We believe in dressing the part

Are you ready for the number of compliments you are going to get in a Leota dress?  So flattering!  It’s your new uniform, and we hope you go far with it.

We believe in treating people right

We manufacture our dresses in NYC so that we can create lasting partnerships with our seamstresses, and ensure good working conditions while supporting a strong economy.

We believe in changing the world

And you can’t do that in uncomfortable clothes.  We’re on each other’s team; so our dresses are always easy to wear: machine washable, wrinkle-free, travel friendly, comfortable.  Now go get ’em!
