Summers in New York inspired Louise Stokes. After graduating from Trinity College, she worked as an intern during show season with Alexis Bittar. Watching a world-renowned designer present his collection to the best buyers in the business was her tipping point and New York became home for much of her early twenties.
Working for leading design houses that created fine jewellery for every calibre of client from Bloomingdales to Helzberg Diamonds, gave Louise fresh insights. Jewellery was personal and every piece reflected an idea or style that started from a sketch. Every stunning collection she encountered from iconic NY brands like Me&Ro and meetings with Iris Apfel made her appreciate the emotional value attached to what we wear.
Louise returned from the States in 2007 and opened Loulerie in Dublin bringing her style influences to a new audience. Her passion for high quality, crafted collections with a sense of individuality is evident in her own Loulerie line of elegant grey sapphire, gold, black and white diamond jewellery.
