About Crystallized Couture Atelier 💎
Inspired by the women's taste and power.
Influential, innovative, romantic—GeorgiaLeyla products represent the power of the luxury craftsmanship and are unsurpassed for their quality and attention to detail.
I started my fashion designer career back in 2014 while a Junior in college studying Business. I knew I wanted to create something, but I wasn’t entirely sure of what that “something” was.
I went into the process without any expectations, but just to have fun and use GeorgiaLeyla as a platform to be creative. It’s amazing what can happen when you truly love what you’re doing. After graduating college, I got a job in Lisbon and I just let GeorgiaLeyla happens slowly... It never felt like a “job” to me, but it was an outlet I always looked forward to at the end of the day or on weekends. It made me happy and excited and kept me motivated. Soon, every hour that wasn’t spent at my (then) current job, was spent working on GL- production, running social media, shooting content, writing copy, reading and learning about branding and design, finding inspiration, the list went on and on.
After several years of debating whether or not to take the leap to full-time fashion designer, I decided it was time in late 2016. I had reached a point where I knew if I didn’t take the risk, I might not ever be able to. So with the encouragement of my husband, our family don't support us... I decided to run GeorgiaLeyla full-time. It has been one of the scariest, most rewarding experiences! Having the ability to focus solely on my business was like a weight lifted off my shoulders and I knew I could finally start achieving the things I had always dreamed of doing. The thing about my story is that it is still being written and everyday brings a new adventure or opportunity, that’s what is so exciting and thrilling. So, thank you for following along and for your continued support!
How it’s made – The Aim
Georgia Leyla aim is to design and make captivating garments that will make you feel and look your best. The line is exclusive and glamorous with a playful element, making each woman feel beautiful and special when she puts it on.
GL has developed her own specialist technique for making the garments.
Using only the most luxurious and high-end fabrics & finest finishings. All fabrics and finishings are of the utmost quality and sourced personally by the designer. This is unique and makes the garments comfortable providing a higher quality fit and feel.
GL hand make in-house each item individually when you place your order. Each piece is unique & not manufactured and may vary ever so slightly.
Based in Europe (Portugal), Georgia Leyla says "I don’t believe you should do anything if you're not going to do it perfectly. I took months looking for the best fabrics & crystals and I only use gracious Swarovski that will naturally hug your curves and movements. I wish my eyes could take photos, however, I also do my best to show in videos and photos how outrageously gorgeous is in life the crystal shine and purity at night but also in the daylight”.
Whenever I make a new outfit I have in mind two paradoxes:
On the one hand, all my pieces have to be subtle and beautiful and elegant enough to be used both day and night.
On the other hand, my designs can and should be used both in and out of the room.
I only use gracious Swarovski which follow the movements in a natural way and hugging curve fabrics are my selection.
I do not want my clients to buy one outfit to wear once. GeorgiaLeyla designs are lifetime pieces.
