The stunning dress by Heidi Bischoff she's wearing holds a lot of meaning for Leanne ::

“This dress was hand-knit and hand-dyed through hours and hours of work. People don’t realize how much skill goes into making clothes. It’s an art. I have an inexplicable love for chunky knits and sweaters – and an even bigger love for anything handmade. There's just something so unique and special about handmade things that simply cannot be manufactured. In a world of mass production, it's quite rare to find a really special piece or garment that nobody else has. Soft, lightweight and delicate, what I adore about knitwear is the fun and creativity you can exude through colors, yarns and textures. Simply gorgeous and unconventionally beautiful, this is a pretty unique piece that I definitely wouldn't mind keeping if I ever get the chance to borrow it permanently in my wardrobe.”
