About Laura Kathleen

Saint Louis designer Laura Kathleen Baker began working on her career in fashion when she was 8 years old. After many years of designing and constructing garments for herself she attended Western Kentucky University where she earned a bachelors degree in Design, Merchandising, and Textiles. “LK” also studied fashion design at Academia Italiana in Florence Italy.

Laura Kathleen has turned the dream of being a fashion designer into a reality. Remaining based in Saint Louis Missouri, Laura Kathleen represents someone who obtains luxury. We say obtain because she doesn’t just desire things, she goes and gets them. The LK woman likes to be glamorous, elegant, and sophisticated but understands how to be sexy at the same time.

You may have caught her designs on season 9 of Project Runway as a top 5 finalist or on the runway at Mercedes Benz Fashion week. Check out her collection present at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Lincoln Center. After PR season 9, Laura had the opportunity to compete on Project Runway All-Stars Season 2 where she finished in the top 6. Laura now casts the new designers on seasons 10-13 with Lifetime and has also been the commentary on the Road to the Runway.

Laura Kathleen also began a fashion program at a high school in Saint Louis. Five years ago she began realizing she would be teaching much more than just fashion. Each year the program has a fashion show fundraiser where the students model their own creations. In 2012 they raised $30,000 for the school in one night. The 2013 show brought in $70,000.
