Laura Laurens - Colombia

Laura Laurens - Colombia

Laura Laurens is based in Bogota. Her work is grounded by a sense of social justice and seeks to reconstruct Colombian identity following the recent conflict. In 2016 she began a project with former fighters and victims of the armed conflict, working with former FARC rebels to repurpose military textiles into fashion collections. For the International Fashion Showcase, Laura will present work from an ongoing collaboration with the Emberá community of indigenous transwomen.
