Utilising a tactile approach to fashion design, Laoise Carey designs and handcrafts every garment in her studio in Ireland. Vintage and antique textiles provide a basis for every garment, as Laoise builds wearable designs by upcycling found fabrics, haberdashery and vintage patterns. Her collections are characteristically considered ‘slow fashion’, ethically handmade with quality, care and attention to detail.
Her most recent mini-collection entitled ‘A Portrait of the Artist…’, alludes to the fact that this collection was handcrafted and photographed solely by Laoise during the isolation period of the Covid-19 pandemic. It is a portrayal of the extremely personal nature of her work that she wishes her brand to be recognised for.
Her collaboration with Les Fleurs Studio will be her exciting first launch of an exclusive collection for sale online.
