One by one we dream Of silken rainbows and painted promises Of wishes fulfilled and fantasies One by one just for me
A courtship of notions Choreographed artistry Symphonies colours sensations Sculpting elegance with grace
One by one melodies of magic Stitched intimately preciously, precisely Decorated with dancing echoes Of delicious memories to be
Love softly imprinted Swathes of rolling landscapes Glistening oceans swirling Floating kisses of blossom shades
One by one senses awaken Transformation in admiration Adorned with glittering appreciation As cloth and body marry and dance in harmony
One by one Each individually Crafted uniquely Just for me

The journey began fifty years ago. A simple desire to create grown up clothes for children developed into the sophisticated luxury women’s wear designed today. One by one, each piece is crafted by hand by our small, specialist team. They produce unusual wearable art for discerning women around the world.

Luxury Wearable Art for Women

Luxurious, elegant and easy to wear. Each piece is crafted individually creating sumptuously sophisticated outfits for women of all shapes, all sizes and from all walks of life. The Lesters’ artistry appeals to those who do not always follow fashion but are instead seeking something that expresses who they are.
