Leetal was born in Israel and raised in Newton, Massachusetts to scientist parents but an artistic household. She studied film production at NYU and then moved to Los Angeles, where she worked for four years in the film industry. After discovering the so-called "passion for fashion" she spent a year studying fashion design at Parsons Paris in Paris, France, then completed an Associates of Arts in Fashion Design at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, CA. Her Advanced Associates 12-look evening wear collection for FIDM swept the competition by winning both the Jury Prize and Best in Show and walked at El Paseo Fashion Week. Her work has walked shows for Hot Topic/Her Universe, Celebrity Cruises, the Handweavers Guild of America, and others. In 2012 she founded a side brand, Cozday Clothing, created to merge geek culture and fashion together.
