Laura Skelton's Profile
With a background in sustainable architecture, Columbia University graduate Laura Skelton is the founder and designer behind Prix-Prix and the new Jetsam line.
Since her early teenage years, Laura has concocted refashioned accessories and clothing from vintage materials, roaming the aisles of thrift stores and costume departments for inspiration.
When she’s away from Prix-Prix, Laura loves creating elaborate costumes and clothing from interesting junk. A dress she constructed entirely from the Sunday New York Times was recently featured in several international newspapers, and a handbag she crafted from an old childrens’ sleeping bag was published in the book Refashioned Bags.
Laura currently lives in San Diego, where she enjoys competitive potlucks and elaborate costume parties.
