The first half of my career was spent as a Creative Director & Fashion Designer in the heart of New York City.
I had my own suit and dress collection called Laura Madrigano for many years. Later after I started my own manufacturing company I focused on handbags, scarfs, accessories and one of a kind statement pieces.
In my spare time, you will still find me sewing in my home based design studio…

Coaching for Creatives…
Are you on the cusp of success?
Are you a talented creative who is so close to achieving your dreams but feels burnt out, or depleted?
As a Designer and Creative Director in NYC for over 15 years, I know how passionate you can be about work but feel imbalanced creatively, nutritionally, spiritually, socially, and emotionally. Creatives need a special kind of care, and only another creative can really understand this.
I help creative leaders Feed their SOUL and GROW their business.
This is a delicate and necessary process when you are striving for success. I wish that I could have had the kind of business and self care support that I offer now when I was in the height of my design career. I support designers with burn-out, depletion, pricing, brand vision, defining core values, streamlining, and elevating their brand vision.
As you build your business you need to start from a clear, healed and strong place. If you have old issues, money blocks, or default energetic patterns that haven’t been cleared, those will get in your way, trust me, I’ve been there!
As a Creative Director and Spiritual Business Coach, I can really help you get to where you want to be. A coach, who supports your vision and helps bring it to life is a key role when you are designing a life and business you LOVE.
I help with your Business Vision + your Self-Care!

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!)
