Emma’s Instagrammer of the month: Creepyyeha

When does a girl look her best? When she’s owning her look, says New Yorker Lisa ‘Yeha’ Leung, the creator of the fetish, feminine and fierce Creepyyeha underwear line preferred by Rihanna and FKA Twigs.

Her custom-made pieces are a wild mix of real and faux leather, sometimes lavender-hued other times pink, clear vinyl, apricot jelly vinyl (beats us too), and delicate pieces of gold.  Leung and her team will then cut, spin and sew these materials into garter belts, bras, cuffs, chokers and thigh straps for her 549,000 followers – her ‘babydolls’.

These statement pieces are sexy and seductive but, most importantly, they are the result of a girl who was brave enough to follow her dreams no matter how mad they seemed back then. You could say, she’s owning it.

She takes inspiration from BDSM and burlesque which can be seen in her items that have a mixture of glitz and harsh sexiness. You don’t just have to a celeb to enjoy Creepyyeha’s underwear, they’re perfect for KK parties or just if you want to spice things up in the bedroom.

Explain the process of handmaking your products.

I usually start with materials. I source all over the place until I find something that either inspires me or serves as a solution to a previous unfinished idea. If I can’t find the right material, we have it custom made. Once you have the raw materials, some require finishing touches before assembling the final piece. This is the part most people are unaware of since it takes a lot of trial and error.  We try our best to deliver smooth finished products, and it takes some prep time to get it right.

Last seen: modelling a rather fancy diamond bra in front of a pink silk curtain.
