World MasterCard Fashion Week > Laura Siegel
Laura Siegel is an award-winning fashion designer. Her ethically handcrafted, easy to wear textured pieces are designed in collaboration with artisans in Asia and South-America. After receiving her formal design education at Parson’s The New School for Design in New York City and London’s Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, Siegel honed her skills in silver-smithing, knitting, natural dyeing, embroidery and accessory design with top industry professionals and skilled artisans.
Her work has taken her to all corners of the globe, enabling the young designer to work for and collaborate with international designers such as Megan Park, Life with Bird, Yigal Azrouel, Luca Luca, and Arthur Mendonca. Siegel’s travels and insights into diverse design processes and unique production methods have shaped her ethically handcrafted collection while enabling artisans in third world countries to preserve their cultures and crafts.
Siegel’s work has been recognized in Vogue Italia, Elle Canada and Futureclaw, and her designs have been worn by artists and supermodels such as Nelly Furtado and Niki Taylor. Most recently, she was nominated for the Made For Peroni Young Designer Award. In 2010, she received a Designer of the Year nomination from her graduating thesis at Parson’s and in 2009, Siegel was a finalist in the Louis Vuitton and Parson’s Reconstruction Project.
