With a background in textiles from the Rhode Island School of Design, Lauren Manoogian founded her eponymous label in 2008. Her work has organically grown from a number of material experiments to her current knitwear focused ready-to-wear collection. Lauren Manoogian combines gently manipulated textures, an integral language of detail and an understated yet disccernible shape while maintaining her sustainable philosophies to create unique and honest clothing.
Lauren Manoogian specializes in consciously-sourced materials and collaborates with Peruvian artisans to produce unique and distinctive pieces. She works with an independent dyer to hand-dye each knit garment with locally sourced, natural, plant-based materials. All collections are also centered on ethical production standards to ensure that fair working conditions and practices are carried out at every stage.
