Biz Gals is thrilled to host our first Cocktails & Conversations event on the beautiful Gold Coast, featuring the ladies behind one of our favourite Australian fashion brands, Leina Broughton.
Leina and her business partner Fleur Richardson, will offer an insight into the ups and downs of their business journey and the principles and values they share as their brand continues to go from strength to strength.
With a commitment to creating high quality garments developed and manufactured in Australia, their loyal, body positive and loving tribe is testament to the community vibe that Leina & Fleur have nurtured as they have grown the business.
The Leina and Fleur Story...
Designer, Leina Broughton, started the label in 2010 after working with Country Road in the start up team for their sister brand Trenery. After working with many well known Australian brands, she knew it was time to take the leap of faith and work on her own brand. She hit the boutique market with a unique direction of offering mini collections every two months instead of the traditional season heavy ranges.
In 2013, Leina met Fleur Richardson, who had moved to the Gold Coast for a sea-change. They joined forces as LBFR Creative and have taken the brand to the next level. Specialising in Australian made jersey garments for the modern Australian woman.
There was an immediate connection with Leina & Fleur as they had incredibly complimentary skill sets and the same work ethic. Within six months they were walking into equal business partnership and getting ready to move the business to the next level.
To kick start the partnership, Fleur and Leina decided to build their own software cloud platform to run their entire business operations. In 2014 they were awarded a federal grant to build the software and in 2016 went on to become finalists in the Telstra business awards. The business has grown beyond a brand and become a way of life for these two.
