Women Making History: Leah McSweeney of Married To The Mob

When conjuring up thoughts of “heavy hitters” in women’s streetwear, there’s a 95% chance this lady’s name will hit the dome within 3 seconds…and if it doesn’t…well, then you’ve been somehow misinformed.

Aside from reinventing the term “Married To The Mob” (google that, it outranks the 1988 movie!), let us tell you what makes Leah McSweeney a Woman Making History.

M.I.S.S. Randi helps me tell it like this:

Leah McSweeney is one hardcore lady, and the slogans she comes up with for her clothing brand Married to the Mob illustrate this point quite nicely! Among them are “Other Bitches Just Front”, “Money Over Bitches”, “Bitch Better Have My Money”, “DILLIGAF: Do I Look Like I Give a Fuck?”, and “Most Official Bitches Reign Supreme”. While it’s clear no one should mess with Leah, EVERYONE and their mothers were trying to mess with the exclusive Reebook Freestyles she designed with Colette (only 350 pairs produced!) and the Chanel-inspired Nike Dunk Hi Supremes that came complete with MOB lacelocks. M.I.S.S. Crew would like to give a warm shout-out to Leah, who, since 2004, has been committed to make some of the freshest clothing for women out there.

Lil Kim, Heidi Fliess, Martha Stewart, Daphne Guiness…

2. How did you get your start?

Busting my ass!

3. What’s your favorite piece of (art, music, fashion, client etc) that you’ve created?

My daughter Kier aka Kiki is my best creation of course. But in terms of MOB I would say just growing the brand the way it has and watching it expand is pretty amazing.
