LeeBex Fashion

What does your company do?

We make garments for plus size women locally and sell via online and physical store in Melville

What is your biggest success?

We did a collaboration with the Foschini Group on some of our dress designs and they were stocked in a few of their branches nationwide . Not only are we a fashion brand but we encourage women to embrace themselves and we are big on self love and acceptance.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

At the moment our biggest hurdle is the mushrooming of the china online stores such as Temu and Shein who sell at fraction of the cost. It’s very expensive to manufacture and source fabrics locally
