Brooklyn-based knitwear and jewelry designer Lauren Manoogian is known for combining her love of textiles and unique style. Originally from St. Louis, Missouri, Manoogian was influenced and inspired by her creative family. After studying at the Rhode Island School of Design, she began working as a knitwear designer for other brands, both big and small, and launched her first jewelry collection in 2010. During this time, she developed a relationship with a handloom factory in Peru where she began designing for herself. Those Peruvian designs soon evolved into what has become Lauren Manoogian’s knitwear collections today. Designed in Williamsburg, but made in Peru, Lauren Manoogian has transformed the look of organic, earthy clothing and jewelry into something truly stylish and fashionable.
