Meet Raquel Leid, the brainchild behind
Grenadian Fashion and Lifestyle Brand Always Leid.
What is your inspiration behind your brand?
My love for fashion has been a core part of me ever since I was a little girl. I always knew that one day I’d be deeply involved in the fashion industry in some impactful way. In 2013, I started Always Leid because I was finally ready to let the world see my take on fashion, while inspiring and empowering others to express themselves fearlessly through their sense of style.
Perfect for today’s bold and daring Caribbean woman, my Summer 2017 Capsule Collection, Mt. Sealey Garden is inspired by and dedicated to my [late] grandfather’s garden that he took so much pride in tending to. Mt. Sealey Garden is bursting with a myriad of colour, tropical prints and a festive Caribbean vibe.
What does Fashion mean to you?
Fashion is an outlet I use to show the world my personality and thought patterns without uttering a single word.
