About the Designer
Metal Apparel & Accessories
There are thousands of designers gliding across the globe. None are quite like Laurel DeWitt. Since graduating from Pratt Institute in 2005, the Kingston, New York native created her own niche, metal apparel & accessories, while building a career as a prolific handbag designer for Kenneth Cole Reaction, Juicy Couture, Michael Kors, Calvin Klein, to name a few. One part maven. One part visionary. 100% original.
She’ll weave a metallic laced, body-hugging dress that slinks like satin and flows like liquid mercury in one instance, then in the next, transform elaborate work from legendary embroidery houses like Maison Lesage, with colorful metal flowers, entirely hand-cut, hand-rolled, and hand-painted to create a stunning display of incredibly meticulous metal work.
