Meet Leah Tuttle, Clothing Rep Extraordinaire
Fashion can be a tough industry – to survive, you need to surround yourself with awesome people. Cherry Velvet is very lucky to be represented by our dynamic and gorgeous agent: Leah Tuttle.
Leah’s agency focuses on Canadian designers who create clothing for sizes XS to 3X. When she was getting started, this was seen as a risky and rocky path in an industry obsessed with fast fashion and cheap imports with high margins. Lucky for us, another customer introduced Leah to our sister company, Diane Kennedy, knowing that Leah was the right agent to represent the brand. When Cherry Velvet got started a few years later, Leah was on board from the start.
Leah is a quintessential Cherry Velvet girl herself! She has the sass and style that goes so well with our vintage-inspired dresses. Her delightfully feminine curves look amazing in so many pinup styles – that’s why we’ve used her as a model on more than one occasion.
We even named a dress after her; the Leah dress came in both black and blue lace. There was also a velvet flock version that Leah modelled for us. (Perhaps it's time to bring back this cut, maybe in classic black lace...?)

Having an agent who genuinely appreciates and wears your product is really special. We love sharing the excitement of fresh styles and fun prints with Leah, and we know that she always has our back.
We consider ourselves very lucky to be represented by such a remarkable and lovely lady who truly understands our market. Thank you, Leah, for your unfailing support, unparalleled work ethic, and for being the strong, resilient, and incredibly beautiful human you are!
