Noted designer and artist Laurie Elyse will present her latest innovative collection at Couture Fashion Week in New York City at 8:00 pm on Friday February 14, 2014. The fashion show will be held in the Grand Ballroom of the landmark New Yorker Hotel, 481 Eighth Avenue in the heart of the Big Apple's Fashion District.

Laurie Elyse is a highly ingenious artist and designer who creates wearable, functional, and decorative pieces. Her distinctive work has been featured in magazines, galleries, restaurants, studios, private collections, and boutiques around the world, on celebrities, and even at charity auctions for the Grammy Foundation and MusiCares, Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation, and many more.

Laurie Elyse graduated from The School of Visual Arts in New York City. It was there that she began to build furniture and other large scale works. With roots in the music industry, she had already been called a "creative genius" for her one-of-a-kind chandeliers crafted from recycled materials and donated broken and used items from musicians of all genres.

Once established as an emerging talent, she founded Laurie Elyse Design, LLC only months before being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2007. Despite the challenges of living with the illness, Ms. Elyse debuted her first runway collection in 2008 and has continued to push artistic and design boundaries creating highly sought-after pieces.

Her new collection, entitled “Bandages” is made entirely from medical supplies, disposable paper patient gowns, gauze, bandages, medical tape, sports wrap, pill bottles, and more. From such unexpected and often unrecognizable sources, Ms. Elyse successfully creates beautiful and feminine pieces.
