Leila Shams from "City Girl Diaries" stars in the Style Network reality docu-series. She and Leigh Rossini grew up together, and twenty years later, they are still best friends.

Leila Shams is a fashion designer with an eponymous clothing line. She worked as a design director for over a decade before starting her own company. Her first solo collection Weird Science (Spring 2010) was well received, landing her in some of the most desirable boutiques in the country including Curve, Elyse Walker, and Forward by Revolve.com. The fall 2010 Bad Luck collection won her international attention and was picked up by Harvey Nichols in the UK. Her line has been worn by Vanessa Hudgens, Ke$ha, Nicki Minaj, Fergie, Kim Kardashian, Brandy, Lindsay Lohan and Keri Hilson and has been featured in Elle Magazine, Marie Claire, Womens Wear Daily and hundreds of fashion blogs. She was named "One to Watch" by WWD and NBC New York and "Breakout Designer" by Time Out New York. Pieces from her spring 2011 collection were featured on the show "All on the Line" with Joe Zee.

Currently, Shams is the design director of Buffalo David Bitton, but hopes to one day have the means to solely work on her namesake line full time.
