For the third episode of our Keeping Company series, looking at innovative and exciting businesses, we meet designer Laurie Nouchka, who creates art you can wear...

Keeping Company is Crowd DNA’s short film series, in which we search the world for inspiration from innovative, disruptive, culturally switched on and just plain unusual businesses.

This episode we meet Laurie Nouchka, an artist and designer whose vibrant, wearable artworks have taken the sportswear world by storm. Manufactured here in London, Laurie’s leggings take inspiration from the architecture of global cities. Legs become canvases for towers of glass and steel, rendered in vivid colour palettes and contemporary designs, all coming together to make dazzlingly unique, timeless pieces made for movement.

We talk about creative vision and the fine balance of maintaining your artistic integrity in the world of business.
