The cutting-edge streetwear line for women was created by 26 year old Leah McSweeney.

As stated on Married to the Mob’s official website, the line is a tribute to the MOB, “‘The Most Official Bitches’ who through the ups and downs and highs and lows never failed to have her back”.

Design inspiration for the label is literally up from the streets of New York and its clubs, secret hang-out spots and smoke-filled parties, making MOB equal parts chic, smart-mouthed, and definitely not-to-be-messed with.”

Leah’s funding for MOB came in a very unusual way.

In 2005, a year after Leah started the line, she got into an altercation with a male police officer in NYC.

The officer beat her so bad, she was left with a broken tooth and black eye!

Leah took it to court, won the settlement, and invested the money into Married to the Mob.

She eventually designed a tee that featured her mug shots on it.

MOB is now flourishing with a full collection of tees, denim, knits and more, while Leah has become well known as a true NYC hustler.

Beyond her business success, she is also a mother to baby girl Kier, who will be 2 years old this summer.

The brand has successfully collaborated with Reekbok, Nike and other brands, creating exclusive gear that flew off shelves.
