Laurel Mae DeWitt is the designer and creator of the LaureLuxe brand. A native New Yorker, Ms. DeWitt has a youthful creativity and craftiness that can only be described as fantastically bold. Her drive is to continuously evolve and push all boundaries. To her, metal knows no limits.
Ms. DeWitt holds a degree in fashion design from the prestigious Pratt Art Institute with an emphasis on jewelry and accessories. Her distinctive creations strike a harmonious balance between the two. She has served as a handbag and accessories designer for Guess, Michael Kors, Calvin Klein, Nine West, Anne Klein, Oscar De La Renta Intimate Apparel, FILA and Rocawear. Her fashion bags can be found at major retailers such as Nordstrom’s, Target, Forever 21 and Wal-Mart.
LaureLuxe designs are worn by a diverse array of celebrities and personalities including actress Milla Jovovich, supermodel Sessilee Lopez, pop mega-star Lady Gaga, Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter Cyndi Lauper, rapping sensation Nicki Minaj, and singer Melanie Fiona. You may also find LaureLuxe on DJ/singer Amanda Blank, the ladies of R&B group Dirty Money, R&B star Oliva Longott, and BET’s “106 and Park” host Rosci Diaz, among many more. The buzz created from fashionistas and celebrity stylists alike has charged this innovative and unique look and has inspired the LaureLuxe brand.
Edgy and unique, LaureLuxe Metal Couture and Jewelry puts a new spin on combining eco friendliness and fashion. It is for the trendsetter trying to deliver a message with their touch on fashion; anyone can wear LaureLuxe… it’s all about daring to be different. Every piece is meticulously handcrafted, customized to fit the client. Created from recycled aluminum geometric shaped plating, the designs are complimented by silhouettes made of gold or silver aluminum chain, whether wrapped or draped, to define every curve. The LaureLuxe earrings pay homage to the streets of Brooklyn, each one named after a different street. Every piece in the LaureLuxe collections is created and inspired by the local urban art scene in Brooklyn, NY.
