A Leading Lady, Effortless Elegance, Sophistication, Classis Style, Feminine Charm…
As a little girl, Laura-Jean Madrigano’s love affair with creativity began while watching her Mother, Grandmothers, and Great Aunt Pauline hand sew in their home sewing studios. Their design talent, craftsmanship & creativity instilled a love of mystery & handwork that continues to inspire Laura to this day.
“It was nothing for my mom to whip up a dolman sleeve dress a few hours before she went out dancing in the 70’s.”
Moving as quickly as the fast-paced industry did, Laura climbed from Designer to Creative Director for a private label company, where she eventually launched her own label “Laura Madrigano Suits & Dresses”.
Her feminine skirt suits, pant suits, dresses and sportswear were sold to specialty stores and department stores both in the USA & Internationally.
The collection was featured in magazines like In-Style, People, Lucky, Cottage Home, and Oprah and in catalogs like Saks, Barrie Pace, Saks Folio, Speigels, & Neiman Marcus.
Personalities like Mary Hart, Ashleigh Banfield, Martha Stewart, & Sarah Jessica Parker wore Laura’s feminine and classic clothing, clutchs, and accessories. Laura also designed for several stars behind the scenes for to help them create a signature style for special events..
A fairy tale NYC girl meets a farmer love story, and a few babies later, Laura scaled her business back to become a one of a kind only shop, where she focuses on hand-made, statement pieces and creates only a few special mini collections each year. Laura is also an International Life Coach, helping other Creative Entrepreneurs align their life and business with their grand vision and life purpose.
Her new label, Laura Jean Couture, is a culmination of all that Laura loves and is a true reflection of where Laura’s passion is today. The collection is a blend of fine handwork, luxurious fabrics, & classic estate sale treasures that are layered together to create the always elegant, sophisticated, classic and feminine collection of one of a kind statement pieces that last a lifetime.
Women can pass on these statement pieces to their own daughters and granddaughters, hopefully instilling the same love of fashion, independence and style that Laura received from the incredible, creative women that inspired her in her own family and life.
Inside every piece you will find a story of inspiration and intention. Cards that carry the history of the design, the intention that was hand sewn throughout the item, and the story of how it came to be are meant to be a time capsule keepsake to be cherished and stored with each item. Hopefully one day, years from now, another little girl can feel inspired to dream big, use their imagination, and develop their own sacred creation process.
Every Laura-Jean Couture piece is a one of a kind and hand made in the USA.
