Laurel DeWitt Metal Fashion & Accessories

Metal clothing designed by Laurel DeWitt.
Brooklyn has served as Laurel DeWitt’s muse since attending its prestigious Pratt Institute. With taste as versatile as her own gifts she finds inspiration in its vintage yet avant garde culture in the midst of Brooklyn’s booming artistic scene. She is a seasoned designer and artist and in addition to her own brand, she is a graphic design, branding and marketing maven—effortlessly bringing creative visions into fruition. She has designed handbags and accessories for Kenneth Cole Reaction, Juicy Couture, Macy’s, Michael Kors, Calvin Klein, and Oscar de la Renta Intimate Apparel to name a few. While her fashion bags and designs are found in major retailers, her own brand continues to re-imagine the distinction between clothing and accessories.

Working with metal to make clothing is a rather unique and complicated project. Clean lines showcase the diametric results of DeWitt’s complicated process, illustrating the designer’s unparalleled mastery over the vast behaviors of metal. The body-hugging slink of a ‘70s hood dress, flowing to the floor like liquid mercury, works in tandem with metal-mesh open weave shirts boasting fistfuls of bouncing fringe in geometric patterns. Just as impressively, DeWitt reconceives elaborate work from legendary embroidery houses like Maison Lesage, with golden flowers made of layered metal leaflets cascading from the shoulders of a cropped jacket.

You have probably already seen our blog post about Beyonce wearing a Laurel DeWitt metal crown in a music video.  Was the music "heavy metal"?  Sorry, for the poor joke.

The metal fashion collection designed by Laurel has been worn by Beyoncé (as mentioned above), actresses Vanessa Hudgens and Milla Jovovich, reality star Khloe Kardashian, Grammy award winners Cyndi Lauper, Lady Gaga, Kelly Rowland, Lil Kim, Brandy, Will.i.am, Eve, Melanie Fiona, and superstar Nicki Minaj.
