Aura Taylor began to focus her creativity when she was accepted into a special arts program at eleven years old in her homeland of Lithuania. After completing her B.F.A. degree, she worked professionally designing women’s wear and children’s wear before pursuing a M.F.A. in Fashion Design at the Academy. Her women’s collection of wools, silks and leathers combines traditional tailoring with no-sew techniques such as heat welding, vacuum press and adhesive tapes.
