Laura is a California based modern wardrobe artist with specialties in costume design, commercial styling, fashion design and personal shopping. Auspiciously born on a Friday the 13th, this Gemini is constantly in motion. She studied French literature at Reed College and graduated Cum Laude with an AA in fashion design from FIDM in San Francisco. At the turn of the millennium, Laura established the clothing line LB-426. San Francisco’s nightlife elite and artists alike embraced her otherworldly designs, which included a collaboration with local artist DJ UFO!. LB-426 featured Laura’s love of high tech performance fabrics, technical sportswear, feminine silhouettes and the color black.
Press for Laura and LB-426 includes Paper Magazine, WWD, and Urb. Laura was recognized as one of the “30 under 30” by the San Francisco Design Center and her work was shown in the Booth-Clibborn Editions book Scrawl Too: More Dirt.
Laura naturally gravitated to Hollywood, which began a new and challenging chapter of her design career. She is currently a member of the Costume Designers Guild IATSE Local 892. Laura continues to work in moving and still pictures and has resurrected LB-426 as a personal style blog. There Laura continues to keep her finger on the pulse of modern dark style, electronic music and shares her futuristic aesthetics.
