About Laura Olivia
As the founder of the LO studio, Laura is a truly passionate and ambitious creative. After studying textile design at Nottingham Trent University she first made a name for herself as an interior decorator working on high end residential projects. Her love of print & pattern & how it can bring transformation & joy to our living spaces inspired Laura towards a career in the interior textile design industry.
In 2010 the Laura Olivia print design studio was born & after exhibiting at the New Designers ‘One Year on’ event Laura received her big break in to the industry in the form of a large commission by retail giant Wilkinson. She went on to design what became one of their best selling stationery ranges of over 50 products. One project led to another & she soon became known for her commercial hand, vibrant watercolour designs & in depth knowledge of the market.
Fast forward six years & Laura’s studio has a growing design team having sold hundreds of designs across the globe. She continues to work with bedding mills, fabric houses, suppliers, retailers and small start up businesses in the home decor, fashion & stationery markets.
