Artist Laurie Nouchka creates limited edition drawings and paintings that lift her designs off the canvas onto her unique range of style focused and contemporary wearable works of art.
Embedded in the heart of London, she draws inspiration from the urban landscapes around her. She travels the world for inspiration, immersing herself in each and every city. In doing so she has developed a bold and unique approach to depicting her architectural subjects.
Infused with the expertise of fashion designers, her observational drawings of iconic buildings are translated into geometric and linear forms as repeated patterns across a range of carefully designed garments. The vibrant, abstracted prints reflect the dynamic scenes of the urban landscape offset by the functional, clean lines on the collection.
She has collaborated with Equinox gyms, Kings Cross and Farmer’s Daughter Hotel asthe artist in residence to create bespoke collections in response to their unique architectural story.
All pieces are proudly printed in the UK using Italian lycra and EUROJERSEY sensitive fabrics. They are made in Wimbledon, London, and stocked in the UK, USA, Europe, Australia, Dubai, Switzerland and China. (copied from google docs)
