"Gloves are sexy,"

Lorraine says of her flagship design article, "they're tight-fitting and call attention to a particular part of the body -- a part of the body which is, after all, used to touch another person." Her ground-breaking use of unusual prints, fabrics, and hand decorations redefines the way the glove is perceived, from accessory to true fashion statement. Linda Lorraine's background in the fine arts is immediately apparent in her sensual, eye-catching glove and clothing designs. She received a Bachelor of Arts in drawing and painting from San Francisco State University and a degree in fashion design from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.

She exhibits her artwork in numerous galleries and she has designed for many perfomers including Dee Russell, the San Francisco Symphony, The Climate Theater, Actors Conservatory Theater, and numerous dancers, bands, and at fashion, art, theater, and dance events. She designed the white silk gloves for Rebecca de Mornay's Academy Awards presentation outfit, and the purple silk gloves for Joan Collins' Golden Globe award. She also created custom gloves for Goldie Hawn, in "Death Becomes Her", Raul Julia, in "Streetfighter", in addition to creating gloves for Jeff Bridges and Leeza Gibbons.

Linda has worked with hand specialists, occupational therapists, and doctors at medical facilities such as the RSI Network (Repetitive Strain Injury Network), Stanford University Hospital, Davies Medical Center, and the Petzold Memorial Center to create gloves for people suffering from a variety of problems including RSI, carpal and ulnar tunnel syndrome, and tendinitis.
