Before Laugh By Lafaille, I did have another brand where I was creating garments from scratch but I was quite young and didn’t know exactly where I was heading. During this time, I did overcome some personal challenges in my life, which allowed me to start seeing things differently in my creative process, and I wanted to stray away from the standards of the fashion cycle. At this point, I started upcycling and began to receive positive feedback on my new work. Eventually, my aesthetic became more refined, and that’s when I knew I was ready to launch Laugh By Lafaille.
The motive behind the brand was to always keep evolving. With that said, the Fall/Winter 2020 collection strictly emphasizes on upcycling. Moving forward, the next collection will remain sustainable but will not exclusively rely on the upcycling process.
