#MISSGUIDEDDISCOVERED: LEOMIE ANDERSON| September 16, 2016
By now you’ll know that we love catching up with inspirational babes and Leomie Anderson is definitely one of them. From gracing the catwalk for Victoria’s Secret to just recently launching her own clothing line LAPP which is all about female empowerment, Leomie is definitely a girl we are crushing over. If that’s not enough, her outfits are always insane too.
Snoochie Shy caught up with her to chat growing up, inspo behind her brand and advice she’ll never forget…
Hey girl, how are you?
I’m good, excited for the following weeks!

The best part, south London.
When you were growing up what did you want to be?
A fashion designer, then a fashion journalist! Always something in the fashion industry.
Between shoots and castings, and being an ultimate entrepreneur babe! What do you do in your spare time?
I’m always shopping online with Bree Runway, trying to find some very rare designer pieces.
Okay so you’ve created LAPP which is amazing by the way, the whole idea is so cool.
Can you tell us the process behind it and the inspiration behind creating the brand?
After my blog post on consent went viral, I was able to go to a secondary school and speak to young girls about the pressure they face every day. When I asked who they would speak to if they had a question or needed advice, they said a sister or cousin, but if they didn’t have that, they felt they didn’t have anyone to talk to; that’s what got me thinking.
