Laura DeVeau Smith's Profile
I create clothing that I want to wear. I'm adventurous but not overly sensitive to trends. I like things that fit and flatter and have something interesting, something that makes people on the street feel compelled to stop you and say - I LOVE your outfit.
I used to do quite a bit of screen-printing but at times I felt limited. I'd print a bunch of the same design with the same ink colors. With Spirit Zebra I've taken many of the techniques and tips I've learned from the screen printing process and now use them to look at each piece and say "What am I inspired to do here, with this one garment?" Its very freeing. I certainly end up with some duds, like the time I spent two hours adding a geometric pattern to a pair of leggings and ended up making them look like a pair of clown pants. But there are also some major successes, like my cherry blossoms and neon henna designs…
