Designer & Creative Director

The first half of my career was spent as a Creative Director & Fashion Designer in the heart of New York City.

Today I create one of a kind couture accessories for special occasions, and timeless heirloom vintage recreation pieces.

About The Laura Madrigano Collection

 

Most of you know me from my years as a Creative Director + Fashion Designer. I worked in NYC’s fashion industry where I ran my fashion manufacturing company called Laura Madrigano Inc. I designed suits, dresses and accessories and sold them all over the world. In the height of my career, I shipped over 15 million dollars per year from the Laura Madrigano Brand.

Building a Collection, Company and Vision is my passion and Design is my skilset. I studied at The Fashion Institute of Technology and The New School for Social Research. I built my foundation, company and all my manufacturing in the city I loved, New York!

I worked my way up from Assistant Designer to Creative Director in less than 4 years. I sketched, sourced fabric and trim, traveled to Premiere Vision in Paris, shopped the stores in London, Milan and even dined in St. Tropez among the likes of our beloved Princess Diana.

I worked hard and enjoyed the rewards of living a luxurious life as a designer in NYC….but like many, I craved growth and dreamed of running my own business.  When I was 26, I did just that, and what a feat it was. I launched my own manufacturing company and ran it for over 10+ years. (By the way, this was before facebook, email marketing, and even digital pictures). Imagine launching anything before technology was your partner.

All the while, on a deeper soul level, one that I was used to ignoring, I craved a more balanced existence. At the time, I thought what I craved was more…more money to make my life easier…more massages to help ease my migraines, more assistants so that I could spend more time in my creativity, and more sales so that I could grow in the way my soul craved. All that “more”…eventually guided me to less, and my life took new direction when I fell in love with a farmer…(yes NYC girl falls in love with a farmer).

Today, my less is more approach has helped me to fuse together my design talent with my Spiritual Coaching tools and now I help other Creative Leaders weave their success with a spiritual platform to help them evolve their careers. This page is a bit about my history, and my current collection, Laura Jean Couture, which I design as my favorite pass-time ( in between playing with my two beautiful boys and helping Entrepreneurs change the world!)
