INSPIRATION:

She has a broad appreciation for the arts, which also includes a love for automobiles and architecture. Basse draws inspiration from the clean lines, and structural elements of buildings, which she incorporates into her designs.

ABOUT:
Laurence Basse had a successful modeling career before venturing into the design world,
discovered by none other than Jean-Paul Gaultier back in the late nineties. She appeared in
French and American publications like UNITED COLORS OF BENETTON, ELLE
MAGAZINE, COSMOPOLITAN, and many more. During this time Basse began to absorb the
industry, modeling was a way to make money and go to fashion school.

BASSE’s inspiration developed early from a modest upbringing in Normandie, France.

Basse emerged with a feverish passion for well-designed things.

“I loved to dress up as a kid but never thought of becoming a designer until my brother and I started making clothes in high school.

We sold our clothes to the more privileged kids, so it became a hustle! People were hustling drugs, I was hustling clothes,” said Basse. She professionally pursued her allure, by enrolling in a fashion art school in Paris France.

Basse particularly loves working with Leather. ” My background is Paris Haute-Couture however, since I have a rebellious nature, I needed to do something different. Some people think of leather as a very challenging resource, I decided to tame, and create with it, and become one.”
