Laura Laurens is a self-taught designer who launched her eponymous brand in Paris with the SS14 collection. She is recognised for using the fashion platform to build social fabric. Inspired by her experience in fine arts, Laura establishes a dialogue between opposites to question the idea of borders, identity, and cultural syncretism. Her work is defined by a raw approach to design, textile interventions, repurposed military fabrics, wraparound shapes, artisanal processes, the commitment with sustainable processes and the co-creation with different minority social groups in her country, Colombia.
Laurens draws from her own experiences transdisciplinary projects where the "impossible" is woven. Always celebrating diversity and holistic processes.
Her brand has been in shops such as Penelope, Opening Ceremony, Linda Dresner, IF Soho NY, Tom Greyhound Paris, Les Suites Boutique Paris, to name a few, apart from her two shops in Bogotá, where you can find other South American responsible brands.
Vogue Talents, Vogue Italia, the British Fashion Council, Deutsche Welle, Fashion Trust Arabia, among others have recognised her work and commitment for designing a more conscious world....
