Leah Yard’s New Collection Supports Women In Vancouver

July 27, 2021

One of our local favourite makers, Leah Yard Designs, is collaborating with her partner, Kyle of Unimpressed Screen Printing, to create a small-batch apparel line labelled SERIES that’s doing some serious good in the city.

With both businesses located within a few blocks of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, the couple could not ignore the devastating circumstances of folks living in the area, particularly women. Deeply affected by the daily tragedy so many experience, Leah and Kyle designed, together, a casual, classic and very West Coast range of hoodies, satchels, tees and totes, all with touches of LYD glamour throughout. Gold hardware and detailing elevates the Lauren Tote, and Leah’s personal favourite: The Brooklyn Satchel. The best part Fifteen per cent of each item sold will be donated to the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre.

“I do believe that we influence our own destiny and ultimately we are responsible for the choices we make, but there’s an unlimited number of ways things can turn out. And we all have different starting points and battles to fight. Sometimes it’s a major event that changes someone’s course, and sometimes it’s tiny, seemingly insignificant events that nudge us along our path,” says Leah. “It’s a small gesture toward a much bigger issue. But it’s someplace for us to start.” —Noa Nichol
