Born in Los Angeles and raised in Oaxaca, Mexico, Laurie Brazeau became enthralled with the fine-gage knits while living in France. Infinitely more glamorous, elegant, and diverse than the pervading sweater knits of America, they opened her eyes to the possibility of reinterpreting fashion usually showcased in woven styles through comfortable, wearable knits. After graduating from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandizing in Los Angeles, she founded her first label, Brazeau Tricot in 1991. Five years later she debuted Laurie B. The current line, Brazeau Tricot, relaunched in the Fall 2018 featuring women’s knits, luxurious silks and 100% finest cashmere. The styles are simultaneously forward-thinking and vintage-inspired. As luxurious to the hand as they are to the eye, each of Brazeau’s pieces are made from the finest yarns and natural fibers, including combed cotton, cashmere blends and washed silk with cotton. Because Brazeau believes that fit makes all the difference, each of her pieces are easy to wear, fun, flirty and anything but basic.
