Wearable Body Art

Uzra Vo owns Couture by Lola, a clothing line featuring shirts that are wearable body art.

Couture by Lola shirts are designed with a comfortable, non-binding, stretchable, soft and stylish fabric that are perfect for any occasion, whether it be yoga or happy hour. Maybe the best quality is the tshirt’s easy care plan—perfect for the laid back fashionista.

Vo’s inspiration for Couture by Lola comes from her mother. Her mother’s forte is sketching bodies and panting designs.

Vo knew her mother’s artwork wouldn’t be best displayed on a wall, and wanted its beauty to reach across the masses. She wanted real women to be able express themselves and their style, and has successfully done so through her clothing line.

“These sketches are raw, yet delicate and feminine,” Vo said. “The women drawn are real, their bodies imperfect, yet beautiful. I wanted to share them with a similar woman, real women.”

With every Couture by Lola t-shirt purchase, 20% of the proceeds are donated to the customer’s choice of 3 different charities: Susan G. Komen, The Hispanic Conference or Step Up Women’s Network.

If you’re looking for beautiful, raw art in the form of fashion (which, let’s be honest, we all are!), Couture by Lola’s unique t-shirts are a great place to start.

You will be able to meet Uzra Vo and experience her collection on the runway during Phoenix Fashion Week at the W Scottsdale, October 7 – 9, 2010.
