Lauren Manoogian

St. Louis-born Lauren Manoogian studied textile design at RISD before launching her eponymous line as a series of “wearable experiments” using leather and repurposed materials. While simultaneously designing knitwear for other brands, Manoogian cultivated a relationship with a small handloom factory in Peru and began producing her own ready-to-wear pieces. Her design process is entirely hands-on: She knits each idea in her Brooklyn studio, and then collaborates with Peruvian knitters to make them a reality using natural fibers and materials grown and milled in Peru.
