About Laurel DeWitt
Metal Apparel & Accessories
Laurel’s handmade creations are truly remarkable. She’ll weave a metallic laced, body-hugging dress that slinks like satin and flows like liquid mercury in one instance, then in the next, transform elaborate work from legendary embroidery houses like Maison Lesage, with colorful metal flowers, entirely hand-cut, hand-rolled, and hand-painted to create a stunning display of incredibly meticulous metal work.
Far from a one-trick pony, in SS17, March.April.Mae., DeWitt unveils her most groundbreaking collection yet, showcasing denim jackets, thigh-high slickers, latex bodysuits, capes, and paillette and chain gowns all emblazoned with alloy applique. March.April.Mae is devised for the regal, weaving metallic dreams for the golden god and goddess we all aspire to be.
About Laurel DeWitt
Laurel DeWitt now celebrates the launch of her own handbag line featuring totes, satchels, crossbodies, hobos, and metal evening bags—each adorned with her trademarked goddess logo with embellishments on the outside and signature chain-print satin on the inside.
Dazzled by her metal couture clothing and accessories brand along with her 11 years designing handbags for some of the most acclaimed names in accessories, partners Michael Etra and William Wei offered DeWitt full autonomy to design in her inimitable style. Finally backed by the best, she is poised to leave her iconic mark on the handbag industry. Some women choose to wear crowns on their heads. All women deserve to wear a crown on their arm.
By every definition, Laurel DeWitt is an artist. Sculpting elaborate crowns and headdresses is her passion. Her trademarked goddess logo is fashioned after the first crown she created, which was featured in the Smithsonian Institute of African Art. Laurel has been commissioned to design and create one-of-a kind art installations for Macy’s Herald Square, and soon, various locations nationwide. Her work has been showcased in various art galleries throughout New York City as well.
