If you’ve never heard of Laurel DeWitt or seen her amazing work, you are living under a rock that is so last season.  Remember Amber Rose’s red carpet number at the 2014 MTV Music Awards? OK!Amber Rose at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards - Arrivals

From the enchanting-metal headpieces to the intricately styled tops, bottoms, and dresses, Laurel DeWitt has managed to take wearable jewelry design to its own level; and her shows continue to give that anticipating affect of awe every year.

One word to describe Laurel Dewitt’s show: DETAILS.  This show, in its 3rd year, featured combinations of black & gold, hints of silvers, and plenty of gold… giving a combination of Ancient Egypt and Renaissance fashion.  Her vivid use of draping chains and tassels, shiny-plated armor, and chain fringes was displayed in unique hand-crocheted form for her F/W 2015 COLLECTION.  Every single look that graced the runway displayed unique detailing; down to the leather fishnet masks.

 

The highlight of the evening was Amber Rose walking in the show; wearing a black & gold paillette & chain poncho with a chain & leather fishnet mask and leather fishnet gloves.

Finale Look at Laurel DeWitt F/W 2015 ShowThe finale look was that of an Egyptian queen on a chess board.  You can’t help but wonder, “how many pounds of metal does it takes to create such beauty?”  It takes a very special person to wear such an immaculate piece.  Hence DeWitt having model, Rayuana Aleyce (as seen on Season 12 of Project Runway) close every show.
