Samantha Leibowitz grew up in the Philadelphia Main Line, and is deeply influenced by the arts and surrounding culture. She was raised alongside some of the most well-known representations of architecture, museums, and gardens in the North Atlantic region and decided to be a designer back in 2007 when she was in the eighth grade. Leibowitz launched her career on the Fashion Board for Nordstrom at age fourteen and began to immerse herself in the realm of fashion, while expressing her love for the industry. She later completed Drexel’s Summer Fashion Program and then hosted a fashion show with fifty of her designs before even graduating from high school. She completed her studies at West Virginia University and became a certified colorist, majoring in Fashion Design and Merchandising with an emphasis on Business. Her company was officially launched in August of 2015 and in 2016, she launched her eponymous apparel line during New York Fashion Week.
Samantha Leibowitz’ versatile and art-inspired collections graced Fashion Week with a bold, independent, and adventurous style. This collection promoted an eventful and exciting lifestyle, while remaining down to earth. That is where her philosophy comes from; it is everlasting designs from dusk until day.
