She currently works in London as a designer associated with Puma by Hussein Chalayan.

Louise takes the inspiration for her creations from situations beyond fashion: from architecture, biology, graphic effects on TV shows, as was the case with her collection "Decayed Pethio" which refers to the drama series "True Blood”. She carefully mixes heavy materials with dark and light delicate fabrics – balancing, with intriguing effects, textures of different kinds.

During her course in Fashion Design at Istituto Marangoni in London, she worked as an apprentice in a manufacturing company in Asia and also did internships in various fashion houses. Immediately after graduating she had fun creating imaginative theatre costumes for the English National Ballet with David Bamber for design director Tom Ford's "Firebird" and other ballets. Finally she entered Puma, devoting herself to sportswear.

Louise’s projects have been published in various fashion magazines and online in Vogue Italy and have also been included in music videos. During Copenhagen Fashion Week 2012, the Danish singer Aura Dione wore a dress from her last collection from IM, which was later published in the book series "Fashion 2". Her other sketches adorn bottles of perfume. Her clothes are sold online from the websites of Muuse and Notjustalabel.
