Lauren Altman, founder of Lauren Altman Studio, is a multimedia artist bringing her unique artistic vision into the fashion world with eco-conscious designs. With two one-of-a-kind collections of upcycled pieces, Altman has become renowned for her expertise in creating distinctive, handcrafted garments that seamlessly fuse a whimsical, avant-garde aesthetic with classic utilitarian worker motifs. Leveraging her extensive experience in both fine art and the fashion realm, Altman adeptly upcycles and transforms jumpsuits, work suits, jackets, outerwear, shoes, bags, and much more.

Lauren Altman’s newest Heart Collection presents a bespoke capsule line that celebrates love. Each piece is meticulously crafted with 100% deadstock and recycled fabrics, embellished with one-of-a-kind spray-painted heart motifs, leather appliqués, and artisanal metallic gold accents. What sets it apart is the opportunity for personalized flair—enthusiasts can opt for a specialized message, lovingly hand-stitched by the artist. From transitional outerwear to oversized tees, mini skirts, and painted boots, each piece embodies sustainable fashion, narrating its own distinct tale. This collection epitomizes loving symbolism.

Altman’s journey into the realm of sustainable fashion began during an eye-opening artist residency in India. There, amidst the vibrant colors and rich cultural tapestry, she witnessed firsthand the detrimental effects of clothing waste on the environment. Inspired by this experience, she returned to her Brooklyn studio with a renewed purpose: to create fashion that not only looks good but also does good.


Drawing from her background in fine art and the fashion industry, Altman embarked on a mission to redefine the concept of clothing as wearable art. At Lauren Altman Studio, she specializes in crafting one-of-a-kind pieces. Central to Altman’s philosophy is the belief that fashion should be a means for health, wellness, and sustainability. This ethos is evident in every aspect of her work, from the materials she uses to the message she aims to convey.


In a world where fast fashion reigns supreme, Lauren Altman Studio stands as a beacon of hope for those seeking a more sustainable alternative. Through her artistry and dedication, Altman proves that fashion can be both beautiful and responsible, inspiring others to join her in the journey toward a more sustainable future.
