About me
Romantic. Provocative. Classical. This is how you summarise the work of Laura Elizabeth. Influenced by Italian art, history, and literature, Laura tells a story through her high-end creations. Combining tradition with the unexpected is inherent to her style. Her graduate collection Lacrimosa is an excellent example of this, juxtaposing Renaissance opulence with contemporary bondage and then subverting it with Dante’s Divine Comedy. Laura has a particular interest in high-end fashion and costume. She has experience in millinery, shoes, and accessories, and has interned with brands such as Rachel Trevor Morgan, Mary Katrantzou and Kelly Ewing. She worked as a costume trainee with BBC Birmingham Drama working behind 'Doctors', and now looks for experience in film. Laura is currently based in London and is both flexible and open to opportunities to further her career in fashion and/or costume.
