We wanted to share a moment with you from the Los Angeles premiere of Author: The JT LeRoy Story at the NeueHouse Hollywood on August 25. Here’s Laura at the event:

Her beautiful dress came from miss velvet cream, a California-made Neocouture slow fashion clothing line handcrafted by artist Scatha G. Allison. She tells us, “Characteristics of the style and design of MVC pieces are craftsmanship and attention to detail, a punk rock sensibility in design and construction, a love of luxury, and an eye for silhouette and feminine power. In designing and constructing the look for Laura Albert, I wanted to convey her true nature, her essence and heart, which I find to be deeply sentimental and hard as steel, a true survivor, a warrior of this world. I am deeply grateful to her trust and the freedom she gave me in expressing the design and vision. Despite the romance and femininity embodied in the look, it is aggressive, modern and sharp as a blade. Much like Laura Albert in her writing and in her life. I look forward to collaborating with her again in the future. It is an honor to be a part of the Author story.”

You honor us Scatha! Thank you!

Laura Albert won international acclaim with her fiction. Writing as JT LeRoy, she is the author of the best-selling novels Sarah and The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things, and the novella Harold’s End
