Designer Biography

Leigh Young, owner and designer of Pandemonium Seattle started Pandemonium as a custom clothing design house in 1992.  After graduating from the Apparel Design program at Seattle Central Community College she worked tirelessly to prepare herself with as much knowledge as possible in the design industry. Young found herself helping to create Las Vegas Style Show Girl costumes for Gregg Thompson Productions. She also assisted with creating fun, novelty hats as well as practice more conventional millinery techniques with WE Hats (a line she now owns and designs for). In her time off she was designing & showing her collections at local fashion shows and charity fundraising events.

Armed with her education, varying experiences and inspired by the impeccably-dressed women of the 1920’s, Young was eventually able to quit her extra jobs and focus on her own line full time. Young set out to create a line of hats, handbags, and fashion accessories that emphasized the use of soft textures, faux furs, velvets, and tactile upholstery fabrics. The Pandemonium brand is now a growing line of fashion accessories and clothing that are available to the wholesale market throughout all North America including Alaska and parts of Canada.

Leigh Young - Fashion Designer Pandemonium Hats Seattle

Pandemonium continues to be a line that is hand-sewn in the USA. It is a brand that strives to give its customers a product that they can feel good about selling on Main Street, USA. From multi-generational production employees, spouses, to long time friendships, and even mom, (and mom’s dog, Watson) she continues to surround herself with a small team of people who wear many hats (sometimes, literally) and work very hard to make Pandemonium successful. As Pandemonium grows Young feels strongly about about retaining the sense of a small company feeling for her brand. This allows for attention to detail, customization and the opportunity to build the one-on-one relationships with her customers.
