#tbt : Backstage at Laurel Dewitt
Laurel Dewitt is a designer from New York, she creates hand crocheted metal apparel. These are some of my images from the show and backstage from this years NYFW.
The runway presentation was hosted in a church in New York City. I had access for pre show which was directly after one of the shows at Lincoln Center. I had to hightail it downtown, it was freezing, couldn't catch a cab...fun times. When I arrived (sweaty, disheveled, a hot mess) I run up the stairs only to bump in to Amber Rose instagram-ing and looking flawless. The images you see on here of Amber Rose - NOT PHOTOSHOPPED at all..seriously. She is really beautiful in person and her body is insane. She is also really nice. Amber did have her own makeup artist with her and I kept trying to figure out what makeup they were using. I have read previously about a particular professional brand of product that she uses and credits for her look. If you do know the brand please comment below or shoot me a message.
Ok Ok back to Laurel Dewitt. She considers herself a sculptor, artist and fashion designer. She creates wearable art. You might have seen her work on the runway, red carpet or worn by many in the music industry. She has designed handbags and accessories for Kenneth Cole Reaction, Juicy Couture, Macy’s, Michael Kors, Calvin Klein, and Oscar de la Renta.
Her handbags can be found in major department stores and on line. Her own brand Laurel Dewitt focuses on combining accessories and apparel. The line is a favorite among Amber Rose, Vanessa Hudgens and Milla Jovovich, Khloe Kardashian, Cyndi Lauper, Lady Gaga, Kelly Rowland, Lil Kim, Brandy, Will.i.am, Eve, Melanie Fiona, and Nicki Minaj.
Laurel Dewitt sells many of their pieces on line and custom order - all made by hand. I have included some other less expensive options below taking inspiration from this season's show.
