9/22/2022 Fall ’22 Designer in Residence: Karen Proctor, Improv Lab


Laura Kadamus graduated from NYU’s Gallatin School (’09) with a BA in Individualized Study, concentrating on the self and its cultural deviations. She switched gears after graduation to work in fashion, interning for Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler. Since 2011, she’s worked as an Assistant Designer for Holmes & Yang, a high fashion women’s wear company, where she designed two collections a year alongside the principal designers in addition to coordinating production and developing brand materials. Outside of fashion she is an avid reader, illustrator, and yogi. She came to DSI to refine her skill set and better address the complex challenges that face the world today.
