About

Photo by Breda Murphy Photography, Toronto.

Leah Morrigan is Canada’s first female men’s image specialist and has been optimizing men’s presentation since 2004.

With a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree (Theatre: Design – costume), Fashion Design studies, and a certification in Image Consulting, Leah has a solid working knowledge of design, textiles, clothing construction and fit, and the psychological aspects of clothing. Trained in dance and yoga,  Leah understands movement, gesture, and posture as the language the body speaks.

Her experience with men is as eclectic as she is: Leah has engaged thousands of men in frank conversations about safer sex and social issues as the first woman to volunteer in the gay men’s outreach program at the AIDS Committee of Toronto, she’s led image workshops for youth-at-risk groups and sports media students, helped out with the Globe and Mail’s first “Suitable” men’s makeover, was named a “style visionary” by the Toronto Star, and started her career in Eaton’s menswear department in 1986.

She constantly contemplates men, their clothes, and the masculine condition through observation, engagement, and scientific and behavioural research.

Leah writes for the Toronto Star as the men’s entrepreneurial image expert and sometimes publishes in the Huffington Post.
