About Laura Merry Andrighetti
Laura Merry Andrighetti is not a fashion designer. She has no formal training as a seamstress, no relevant educational history to speak of, no boundary between her visions and her hands. Laura’s work features thrifted materials reimagined as wearable collages which raise eyebrows and polite middle fingers in a meditative rebellion against plain t’s and one dimensional living. In her early twenties Laura dreamed collaborative retail spaces into existence. She opened two unusual boutiques in upstate New York, Ritual of New Paltz and Alley Oop of Troy. These storefronts served as clothing galleries for the individual. Equally inspired as she was frustrated by her experiences as a buyer in traditional retail settings Laura began making her own wears from deconstructed, second-hand clothing as a way to buck the trend of fast fashion and absent minded shopping. Laura shreds threads and cuts her own cloth from her studio at The Church, a budding artist’s residency, in Troy New York.
