ABOUT THE BRAND

ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Born in Inglewood, California, Desireé LeSassier is a teen mother turned entrepreneur. With expertise in ground-up fashion projects, Desireé has taken her concepts and designs for Love and Mercy to a new dimension in fashion. Desireé has always been a visionary with a creative mind and boundless energy. Becoming a mother at the young age of seventeen and again at twenty years old, she managed to defy the statistical odds against her and not only graduate high school, but receive a Bachelors of Arts degree from Loyola Marymount University.
As one would expect, life posed a level of challenges that made it difficult for her to find a career that fit the lifestyle of the young single mother with two small kids. Working a day job served as a stabilizer for her children but her creative passion always took precedence between her ears. After gifting her friends with some of her hand made candles, jewelry, and paraphernalia, that was the origin to starting her business to inspire and impact the world.
Love and Mercy is a product of the hustle, fight, passion, faith, grace, and overall ambition of Desireé LeSassier.
