Debbie Lessin's Profile

About

For Debbie Lessin, owner of D J Lessin & Associates, Inc., a CPA firm, Balancing Lady Designs fulfills her need for creative inspiration. The Balance Lady Designs collection is all about fabric, function, fashion and fun!

Balance Lady Designs came about as a result of Debbie admiring the amazingly wonderful silk designed by her friend and work neighbor Lee Allison. Lee mostly designs ties under his own label but he also does a lot of custom work for the likes of the Lyric Opera and various corporations like Northwestern Mutual and Miller Beer. He even designed a tie for President Obama's National Finance Committee during the 2008 election. Lee’s ties are available online at www.leesallison.com and at better retail stores throughout the country.

The silk is woven at a 300-year-old family-owned silk mill in England, the same mill that was asked by the Royal Family to weave the silk used for Lady Diana's wedding dress. It's really just amazingly fabulous. Debbie encouraged Lee to create something with his fabric for women. And when he didn’t she did!

Debbie takes Lee’s remnants and repurposes them into fashionable art jewelry. Her “art for your hair” collection includes bobby pin sets, pony tail holders, headbands and hair clip/pins (dual function). Earrings and cufflinks complete the product line. While many of Lees’ fabric are traditional tie designs, many are whimsical. All the Balance Lady Designs are limited editions; most of the pins are one of a kind.

From sorting the fabric remnant triangles…to planning which size circles to cut for maximum use…to hand cutting the fabric…to covering the five sizes of buttons…to hand 88sewing the pins…to gluing the findings…to packaging and labeling the final product for display, Balance Lady Designs has become Debbie’s “happy place”, a place to express her creative self and find function by repurposing exquisite fabric for fashion and fun!
