Founder and Designer At Arebesk - Leana

Founder & Designer

At 20 years old I moved from a small town to a big city with high hopes of making an impact in the fashion industry with little money and lots of ideas.

 My first attempt to sell accessories was cut short by a lot of rejection by local stores so I took my ideas to a larger corporation where I got my first big purchase order with Charlotte Russe. While that was a great stepping stone, it was not enough and my path moving forward was met with a lot of obstacles, dishonesty and disappointments. I promised myself I would work hard and learn everything about this industry and one day see my designs and hard work pay off. I gave up on my dreams somewhere along the way, settled down, had kids and fell into the mom trap most moms do. I woke up one morning and realised I was not happy and the only person that could change that was me. I signed up for Pilates and instantly fell in love. Pilates strengthened my mind and body and reawakened my desire to create. From this came a love of designing grip socks and AREBESK was born.

 I want to thank all the amazing business owners and customers that have given me so much love and support. It is because of you that I can do what I love and give back.
