A true artist uses their unique vision as inspiration to create wonderful masterpieces. This year, Scottsdale Fashion Week is featuring magnificent artist and world-renowned designer, Laurel DeWitt. Laurel will showcase her latest designs at the Metal + Mirrors Runway Show happening on March 4 at 8 p.m. at Livewire. She will also speak at Scottsdale Fashion Week’s Featured Designer Brunch on March 3 at 10 a.m. at Dakota. Tickets to both events are available now at sle.bz/SFW17.
Laurel has mastered the art of shaping metal into glamorous fashion pieces that hang like delicate fabric. She crafts intricate metal flowers, crowns and clothing by hand. Signature Laurel DeWitt creations are guaranteed to make a statement, and we can’t wait to see her bring it on the runway early next month. You won’t want to miss this.
Laurel has designed pieces for major entertainment powerhouses, including Beyoncé, Amber Rose, Will.i.am., Lady Gaga, top tier models and more. Take a look below at a few of her treasured pieces that have been donned by celebrities and fashion models from around the world.
Queen Bey wore a custom-made Laurel DeWitt crown fit for the queen she is in Coldplay’s music video, “Hymm for the Weekend.”
The crown features realistic, hand-crafted flowers with perfectly rounded golden arches. It was the perfect piece for Coldplay’s theatrical and colorful music video. Laurel’s crowns range in style, yet they all make a bold statement. Take a look below at some of her other crowns.
Amber Rose is a longtime admirer of Laurel DeWitt’s fashions and has good reason to be. Laurel has a way of making metal drape bodies in the most complimentary way. The metal hugs Amber’s curves like satin. Take a look at more of her pieces and the many ways she uses metal to compliment a woman’s body.
Laurel DeWitt also maintains metal’s natural state as a sturdy material in many of her works, including this piece she designed for Will.I.Am. Crisp lines and sharp edges give this look a dangerous and edgy feel. Below is another examples of this style.

Laurel DeWitt manipulates metal in a way that mesmerizes the eye. The amount of detail, movement and shape of her pieces is what high fashion is all about.
