I am Lysandra Weber, Owner/Designer of geekchicfashion, a modern, chic & comfortable independent women's clothing label, handmade in the USA. I created geekchicfashion for women like me (and women like you), women who have busy lives, but want to look good and feel comfortable. Our jersey skirts and tops are just that: comfortable, versatile yet chic wardrobe staples that are easily dressed up for work and dressed down for play. Added bonus: they are all ethically made right here in the US by me!
I began sewing when I was nine with my great aunt and mother's help. They both made their own clothes in their youth and taught me the basics. In recent years, when off-the-shelf fashion didn't fit my personal aesthetic or lifestyle, I put my skills to work designing and making clothes for myself. My then-coworkers loved my geometric inspired designs so I made the leap to grow geekchicfashion into a business (oh, and work from home with my super cute son #babydesigner and daughter #littleladyboss)
I know many people think handmade clothing may not meet commercial standards, but I promise you that I am committed to high quality construction and beautifully sewn designs. I am a lifelong learner and continue to hone my skills as a designer, experimenting with new fabrics, sewing techniques and pattern designs.
In case you're interested in my "formal credentials", I'm a business nerd! I received my BS in Economics from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and my MBA from Kenan-Flagler Business School at the University of North Carolina where I concentrated in Entrepreneurship and Sustainable Enterprise. I've worked at a variety of small businesses throughout my career, helping to increase awareness and drive growth...now I get to put my skills to work for you!
