Laura Theiss is widely considered as one of the most exciting knitwear designers on the fashion scene.
After graduating from Central St Martins, in London, Theiss developed a boldsignature style, recreating in a modern key traditional crochetand knitting stitches, designing fantastically original piecesfor her own label and international clients, bringing knitwear into the future. Her silhouettes and shapes are indeed directly linked with sci-fistories of brave amazons living in a galaxy far away.
Yet fantasy combines in Theiss' designs with technique: since founding her label in 2010, the designer produced acclaimed collections shown in London and Paris while constantly reserching the world of yarns and stitches, coming up with three-dimensional patterns, highly contrasting textures, striking volumes, and unusual colour palettes.
Theiss currently produces her own collections and collaborates with international fashion companies. She divides herself between the UK and Germany where she recently designed costumes for two ballet performances by Irish choreographer Marguerite Donlon - 'Wings' and 'Shadow'.
