As a Saskatoon Fashion & Design Festival OG, it has been a crazy ride to watch Laurie Brown blossom into the incredible designer she is today. Born and raised in Flin Flon, Manitoba, this inventive designer has created an epic self-named brand for herself, which all started from a simple passion of creation. Don’t stop this babe now though, she’s challenging herself by the minute – first up? Competing on Slice TV’s hottest new television show, Stitched. Help cheer on our Saskatoon gal as the premiere airs on Sunday, September 23, 2018!
Besides creating avant-garde and stylish pieces, Laurie believes in promoting local designers in your area. #WhoMadeMyClothes is an important mandate for Laurie as she believes the entire concept of designing doesn’t just start with choosing the perfect fabric or textile, but goes beyond that. She loves to question where that textile came from, who assembled the idea of the pattern, and how it arrived at your local fabric store. She aspires to break out of the traditional mold of what designing is today, and continues to be a true pioneer and innovator for our YXE fashion community.
