Former Design Director at Victoria’s Secret, Leila Ligougne is a New Yorker by adoption. She has lived in Quebec, Paris, London and NY getting inspired from the youngest of age.
After studying in Paris, and having her clothing line in Canada, Ligougne spent most of her career getting a rich experience from collaborating with renowned architect Gaetano Pesce and working the two opposite ends of the fashion design and business spectrum alongside fashion designers including Catherine Malandrino, Rachel Roy, and Jill Stuart.
Most, recently, she started “Ligougne Studio” consulting in the fashion industry and started an eponymous collection of summer dresses and cover-ups set to launch in November 2015.
Regardless, Ligougne is always dabbling with art and she is now also pursuing her interest in forward computational fashion.
