Kerry Leikus, Fashion Designer
Kerry Leikus entered the fashion world in the accessories market, designing and producing an array of woven, silk and leather belts. Leikus, the chief designer and founder of Keggy Enterprises, LLC, received her inspiration to create the very first Keggy belt line, while pregnant with her second child. Frustrated with the lack of stylish maternity belts, she reinvented the woven belt and introduced her exclusive designs on reversible belts available in a wide range of sizes.
Keggy’s bold retro-vintage patterns immediately caught the eye of many Hollywood A-listers, including Kate Walsh, Jessica Alba, Teri Hatcher, Molly Sims and Jessica Biel. Keggy belts have been included in the swag bag at the Grammy Awards and have been featured in Us’s Buzzometer, Life & Style, Ok!, WWD, and Lustre Magazine. Keggy belts were also picked as one of the top 10 “sexiest, sweetest and hippest gifts around” for the year (FoxNews.com).
Today, with Keggy Enterprises, LLC well underway, Leikus maintains her dedication to providing unique, high-quality belts and has expanded her collection to include both a full leather line and silk fabric line. The leather collection features premium quality leathers and faux in an assortment of daring colors and styles. Custom buckles adorned with unmistakably “Keggy” details—pave rhinestones, edgy studs and unexpected pops of epoxy—set these pieces apart from the rest. Leikus’ silk belts boast fun geometric floral patterns and feature the Keggy logo signature design on the backside.
In response to the great demand for more Keggy, Leikus designed her first line of outerwear for Fall 2008. Leikus favors soft but tailored lines, and adorns her coats with feminine details and princess seams for a slim fit. Leikus selects the finest wool plushes and soft ponte de roma linings, combining fabrics that allow for both luxury and comfort. With a vast array of styles, the line carries something for everyone.
Known as well for Keggy outerwear and belt designs as for her business skills and acute intuition, Leikus’ finger is on the pulse of fashion. Season after season she almost magically predicts the “in style” while transcending the trend to reintroduce the old and claim the “what’s new” in fashion.
