Elegant Curiosities was founded in 2013 by the Dutch designer Laila Verseput. From styling for TV shows, videos and the MTV awards to designing a jewellery collection containing real wood from the RMS Titanic for “the National Geographic Channel provided artifact exhibition” in the Netherlands and Belgium.
Laila uses history as an inspiration, reviving the beauty of the past, dwelling into forgotten fashion while giving it her own twist. The looks will have a retro but relevant vibe, sexy but classy, vintage but happening.
For Vancouver Fashion Week, Elegant Curiosities is upgrading her designs to a more luxurious and exclusive collection than ever before.
The pieces are designed for anyone who wants to express their femininity, people who want to stand out in something luxurious, unique and exclusive. Every piece of clothing is also a piece of jewellery. Just a few examples of what you can find in her designs: historical remnants, 24k hand gilded and silver-plated details, gemstones, freshwater pearls, sterling silver and 14k gold. All to give you the feeling that you are not just wearing a piece of clothing, but a jewel with its own story and inspiration.
