Laura Sheppherd - Salon de Couture

 W A L K I N G  .  I N  .  B E A U T Y

When you step into Laura Sheppherd's gorgeous Atelier in downtown Santa Fe, you'll  find  frothy wedding gowns  and luscious  evening wear, and you immediately sense that you've  entered  an elegant wonderland. A graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology in NY, Laura became enamored with antique fabrics and historical design elements. Many of her creations reflect that passion - corsets from the 19th century, sensuous, bias-draped gowns from the 1930's and silk screened and hand printed devore velvet creations - created in her Santa Fe studio - that resonate old world graphic designs.

Her color palate is exquisite, reflecting all the hues of nature - sky, sunsets, flowers, mountains, water. "I saw that this beauty was for me to interpret into clothing so that women could wear their beauty on the outside as well as the inside," says Laura, who wants her clients to literally walk in beauty.









She collects wonderful vintage lace, often layering the pieces
 for a collage effect.






Her dresses are sexy...


Wonderfully detailed...



And very, very romantic...
