Leatherock’s 31st Anniversary !

This December, Leatherock celebrated our 31st anniversary. We have had a great run so far, and are looking forward to great things in the years to come!

On 12-13-14, we opened our factory up and invited customers and friends to enjoy food, refreshments, live music, and, of course, shopping! It was great to see so many Leatherock fans, family, and friends, and we were thrilled to have Doug Allen(of  The Mar Dels) performing, along with some friends. There was even a surprise appearance by Eve Selis!

We are also proud to have partnered with Photocharity for this event. This is a great organization that helps save San Diego homeless youth. A portion of the proceeds from our sales at this event went to helping this wonderful cause. Part of what Photocharity does includes providing these kids with free music and art lessons, as well as other necessities, through their “Taking Music & Art to the Streets” program.  A few of these youths were present at Leatherock’s 31st anniversary event, and we were excited to have them perform!

Leatherock gets “The Gatsby Look”

gatsbyThe Leatherock team were queuing up to see ‘The Great Gatsby’ when it recently burst into theatres and much to our approval it delivered all the glamour and hype that it had promised. In doing so it has sparked a 1920’s fashion revival up and down the country.

The ladies at Leatherock love The Gatsby Look, the luxurious silk fabrics, beads, sequins, low waist lines and art deco jewellery. The style possibilities are truly endless therefore it comes as no surprise that women are searching to recreate the style of the era.

At Leatherock we have selected their favourite look from the film for you to recreate, a sophisticated style which radiates 1920’s elegance but won’t look out of place in modern times. As beautiful as leading lady Daisy Buchanan is in her elaborately embellished dresses it is Jordan Baker’s elegant and sporty style that is a clear winner in the style stakes for us when recreating the Gatsby look.

Putting together your Gatsby inspired look needs to be done with great care as you want to avoid looking like you have just stepped out of a costume store. That’s why Baker’s outfit is perfect. A simple black dress that shows off the shoulders and arms teamed with statement accessorises.  Try combining your own black dress with the Leatherock’s Gatsby belt. Crafted in the United States this stunning art deco inspired belt features clear embellishments that when worn around your hips gives the appearance of the dress having a low waist line which truly captures the essence of the 20’s. The dropped waist creates a beautiful silhouette and works for practically any body shape. Our Gatsby inspired belt quickly becomes the focal point of this outfit. Continue to further accessorise the dress with ornate jewellery, an elaborate cuff like Leatherock’s Crystal Waves Bracelet which is finished with Swarovski crystals evokes the era perfectly adding just the right amount of glamour.

BET Awards 2013

2013 BET Awards

 
This weekend we will be at the 2013 BET Awards. This is a special opportunity for us to be part of one of the most exciting weekends in music, and see some of the biggest names in the music and entertainment industries come down from Hollywood and rock out at L.A. Live.

Hosted by Chris Tucker, the impressive line up of performers includes Stevie Wonder, Justin Timberlake, Mariah Carey, Snoop Dogg, Robin Thicke, Chris Brown, Kendrick Lamar, R. Kelly, and Miguel. Nominee categories include awards for the best artists in R&B, Pop, Hip Hop, and Gospel music, and also include best actor and movie awards.

Leatherock are no strangers to Hollywood. Our belts have been slung around the waists of Beyonce, Anna Lynn, Alicia Keyes, Lee Ann Rimes, Cher, and Kim Kardashian to name a few … So we are very excited to be one of a small group of companies to be in the spotlight at the Gifting Suite to show off some of our latest collections, including our new Biker collection and our Rock and Roll belts.

Two hundred guests have signed up to take part in the gifting, which will be held at a well-known hotel in the area. We’ll be giving away some of our handmade leather creations including a selection of leather shoulder bags, studded leather bracelets, and plenty of Rock-inspired belts that give celebrities that edge they are looking for from their outfit. Since the choice will be theirs, it will be interesting to see what they go for this year.

The big names in music and entertainment tend to be drawn to Leatherock’s more exotic designs and big, bold oversized buckles — think Beyonce, who went for our Leatherock Heart Belt, and Alicia Keys who was wearing one of our belts when she was photographed with John Mayer.

We will be meeting the stars this Saturday to help them choose their favorite Leatherock accessories. Keep an eye on our Facebook page to see who has been spotted wearing what!
