Currently, Laure is working on multiple art projects as well as her new Couture To Wear collection.

Given her life experience and her expertise in the luxury goods sector and handicrafts , the designer decided to create a collection that reflects the life of contemporary active  and stylish woman , while remaining affordable.

The principle of ” Couture To Wear ” collection, is to combine the functionality of ready to wear, with cuts and finishings of Haute Couture.

The special feature of the collection is to be washable, to not require ironing , and to travel easily .

The designer chooses her materials herself and follows up manufacturing.

The Collection is Made In France .

WE ARE CRAFTSMEN …

 ” IN ART THE CONSTRAINT IS A TOOL TO GO FURTHER…CREATION OFTEN COMESFROM THERE. “

 Christian Lacroix 

If I mention Christian Lacroix, is that I believe he represents the Couture as I conceive it.

Our profession is  primarily a work  of artist and craftsmen .

Couture is born in the“Heart “ of the workshop …And that’s how I work …  

Each collection is a newstory we write with the “Thread of the Needle” .

Since I started, I make myself, most of my prototypes ….Molding, via the pattern design, to finishing.

Also I supervise each project from the workshop.

I have a rule: “Never ask to my team to do what I can not do myself, and work in respect of the other”

I always have a real pleasure unceasingly renewed, to unfold the fabric , playing with the bias ,and the thread … and then to finalize every detail …

I do not find my inspiration in magazines or on the web , but through my life experiences and my travels.

 You do not become designer by showing … but looking carefully …listening …. passionately …

 Our profession is in perpetual movement of life and color to the one who has captured the essence.

 NOUS SOMMES DES ARTISANS

”  DANS L’ART LA CONTRAINTE EST UN INSTRUMENT POUR ALLER PLUS LOIN… LA CRÉATION NAÎT SOUVENT DE LA CONTRAINTE  .”  

CHRISTIAN LACROIX

 Si j’évoque Christian Lacroix , c’est qu’à mes yeux il représente la Couture telle que je la conçois .

Nous exerçons avant tout un métier d’artistes et d’artisans .

 C’est au cœur des ateliers que naît la Couture …Et c’est ainsi que je travaille …

 Chaque collection est une nouvelle histoire , que nous écrivons au fil de l’aiguille .

Depuis mes débuts , je réalise moi-même , la majeure partie de mes prototypes ….Du moulage , en  passant parle patron , jusqu’ aux finitions.

De même je supervise chaque réalisation de l’atelier .

J’ai une règle d’Or : ” Ne jamais demander à mon équipe de faire ce que je ne sais pas faire moi-même ; et travailler dans le respect de l’autre “

Je prends un plaisir, sans cesse renouvelé  ,à dérouler l’étoffe , à jouer avec le biais et le Droit fil …puis finaliser chaque détail …

 Je ne trouve pas mon inspiration dans des magazines ou sur le Web , mais à travers mes expériences de vie et mes nombreux voyages .

On ne devient pas Designer en se montrant …mais en regardant attentivement …en écoutant ….passionnément …

 Notre métier est en mouvement perpétuel de vie et de couleurs pour celui qui en saisit l’essence 

 Laure Kczekotowska
