Laura Siegel recently launched its Spring 2018 ready-to-wear collection.

The designer has moved from making earthy toned clothes to more refreshed and refined outfits. The label is not so old on the fashion circuit yet has understood the need for organic clothing. Seigel has focused more on using artisan woven fabrics and sustainable material in her collection. Most of these hand woven materials are sourced from Peru and India. Seigal has established a great rapport with her artisans and they understand her need well. This camaraderie reflects in the clothes which are just aptly knitted and woven to suit the modern wearer.

Women exploring ethical dresses with modern finish can vouch for Seigel’s collection. She incorporates a lot of regional traditional clothing with a modern touch. A one sleeved Shibori-dress and a pair of wide-legged trousers made out of natural-dyed fabric speak volumes about the designer’s skill of clubbing the artisan finery with the contemporary cut and stitch. Silk top with the tie and dyed technique, knitted blouses, high-slit skirts and jumpsuits with belt featured in the collection. Her clothes are very drapey and light-weight that is the reason we do not find denims in her collection. The chambray is used to make clothes in such a way that the end product has a soft velvety finish, which is easier to wear.Going traditional in this day and age cannot be everyone’s cup of tea. Seigel does it with fineness and has established her good clientele over as short period of time only because of her different approach to modern couture and ready-to-wear fashion.
