Laura Thapthimkuna melds fashion, art and science into garments that are utterly stunning and thought-provoking. By designing highly conceptual works for her line “Laura Taka Taka” she clearly eschews the mainstream route, but it’s a decision that she’s happy with. “I can’t stand mediocrity in design,” she says. “I always try to design pieces that challenge the mind.” Laura also specializes in custom stage wear for performers, for international and up and coming performing artists. Her work has been featured in music videos, album covers and onstage by performing acts. She has also worked with and provided costumes for Chicago-based theater company “Collaboraction” for interpretive theatrical performances. She has also been commissioned for fashion installations in many galleries across Chicago such as Toyota’s Creative Lounge Space where she was selected to represent the United States in a fashion show that consisted of designers from specific countries. Her work has been featured in CS magazine, New City Magazine, CBS News and BRAVO. Her unique design aesthetic stood out in such a way that gained her a place on Rihanna’s fashion design competition “Styled to Rock”, where her designs started turning the heads of celebrity clients.
