Lemond Crayton-Hart ~ House of Lemond
We are all about infusing traditional garments and aesthetics into the modern world by proving quality garments, world class service, and impeccable styling. LeMond says fashion is his ministry and that it’s about more than just selling clothes; he wants to teach young men to dress themselves to face the world with confidence. He offers personal styling tips as well as instruction on basic fashion etiquette, like tying a bow tie. In addition to Designing, LeMond is a model (he’s walked in NYC and Miami), photographer and personal stylist but he always makes time to give back to his community. He donates proceeds from his coffee sales (yes, there’s a coffee bar in the boutique) to feed the homeless and also donates inventory to help outfit disadvantaged men for job interviews.

Featuring clothing that is easy to wear while staying true to the higher end of styling. The line is inspired by the unique individuality of her three sweet daughters! “I have been dreaming of this for some time now and to see it come to life before our eyes and to have my growing family be a part of it is truly amazing.”
Aleshia Mathews ~ Manazhe’
Aleshia was born in Morganton NC and began her career watching her grandmother and Mother sew as a young child. When she is designing, she is inspired by the person she is designing for, along with fabrics and colors. Every design focuses on flattering the bodies of the people who will be wearing them. The moto of her brad is “The idea inside the clothes”. Aleshia’s technical knowledge of garments proper fit and designs, combined with her creative abilities, results in a unique and wearable line that reflects the king of woman she is herself. Aleshia has had designs on the Red Carpets at the Emmy’s and has been a featured designer for a dance company in NYC, just to name a few.
