Couture on Congress

Designer Raoul Blanco opens studio

Raoul Blanco never does things halfway. And so we are waiting with breath that is bated for the opening of his new studio on Congress. The longtime couture designer has been in Lafayette for some time (by way of NOLA by way of Cali by way of even more big cities and bigger endeavors) working with clients one on one from their home or his. But, he gave us the scoop over at IND Style that he's going to be setting up a studio on West Congress.

"Right now going mad with Mardi Gras," is Raoul's current state of mind.

But, he assures us that Mr. Fabulous known for his utterly unique pieces and super (as in Versace) luxe threads and hand beading will be debuting a fabulous space in less than a month. The location he has tapped is the current home of Dulin Interiors at 1915 West Congress Street.

Stay tuned for more scoop as Raoul sews up the last details.
