She works her collections with care, quite avant-garde, punctuating them with small details. She is also a designer very attached to the quality of her products and to her freedom of creation.

This will have earned her a few different and maybe even her departure from Madame à Paris. She will keep this demand for freedom and quality throughout her creations. 

She then creates her brand, Laurence Doligé, from her name married in 2010. 

It is through this brand that the designer makes a name and builds a network of loyal friends and customers. Following her separation, she renamed her brand to Laurence Bras. She then embarks on a new adventure with her sister, Anne, by her side.

During this change, she sees herself accompanied by her stylists's network, sales agents and boutiques who have remained loyal to her.
