Moans Couture vintage costume jewelry
The protégé of Lawrence Vrba, Christopher Crouch turned out to be so talented that he opened his own business. Brought something of his own, he created incredible jewelry – large and complex brooches and high-quality crystals. Noteworthy, handcrafted in New York City in a single copy, Moans Couture products are works of art, and in particular, wearable art.
Partnership with Lawrence Vrba began in 2006 in the famous studio at Fifth Avenue. And the conditions were more than harsh. In particular, if Christopher could not create jewelry to the highest standards within a short period of time (less than one month), Lawrence Vrba would terminate the contract with him. Exceeding all expectations, Christopher Crouch worked for 8 years as a senior assistant to the famous designer.
By 2009, a working relationship with Lawrence Vrba had grown into a close friendship. In coordination with Lawrence Vrba and with his support, Christopher Crouch, in parallel with his work in VRBA, starts his own business. By the way, Lawrence himself proposed the name for the new company – “Moans Couture”.
