Meet the new housewife:
Leah McSweeney is a streetwear pioneer, female entrepreneur, cultural provocateur, and mother of 12-year-old Kier (aka Kiki), living in New York City. Leah famously launched Married to the Mob in 2004, one of the first streetwear brands for women, by women. She created her brand as a response to the male dominated streetwear scene of the time, proving women could be innovators, designers, and consumers in the space. Since launching, she has brokered exclusive partnerships with MCM, Kangol, Barbie, Colette Paris, Reebok, and Nike.
When she is not building her empire, Leah brings her strong female voice and viewpoint to her podcast Improper Etiquette. She is a contributor to Penthouse Magazine, Hypebae and Mass Appeal. Leah continues to advocate for female empowerment, street culture and creative entrepreneurship, she also leans into lifestyle topics like health, fitness and breaking the stigma around mental health. With the help of Tinsley Mortimer, Leah has found a new group of friends, but her outspoken nature proves to be too much for the ladies to handle at times.
