3 Studio Must Haves: Lula Laora

Born from the creative mind of London based designer Lula Laura Velasco and fuelled by her unique approach to bringing stories and fantasy to life, Lula Laora is a fashion brand based at Hackney Downs Studios that explores life’s eccentricities and encourages you to embrace your own. We asked Lula what she can't live without in her studio:

𝟏. 𝐌𝐜𝐕𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐞𝐬 𝐁𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐛𝐨𝐧 𝐜𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐦𝐬
⁠"I cannot start the day without my four little bourbon biscuits. I love them so much I got one tattooed on my hand!"⁠
⁠
𝟐. 𝐒𝐩𝐞𝐚𝐤𝐞𝐫𝐬⁠
⁠"The first thing I do entering the studio is put music on. I take advantage of coming in early when my team's not there yet to turn the music on full volume."⁠
⁠
𝟑. 𝐁𝐢𝐥𝐥𝐲 𝐁𝐚𝐬𝐬 ⁠
⁠"My Billy Bass fish is opposite my desk in the office and guards me from the other side of the studio." ⁠
