Prance, LLC ® is a line of high-end, au courant clothing designed by Isabelle Valentine Laub (née Russell) for the women's ready-to-wear market. Launched with a soft opening in 2010, the debut collection features romantic silk blouses, caftans and dresses, satin-trimmed fleece outerwear, and leather-enhanced leggings which exude a modern, progressive appeal. The line was created to fulfill a void that Isabelle believes exists in the marketplace for well-made clothing using quality fabrics and designed with a trained eye for an ageless, artistic, confident woman. Isabelle began her design career in 1993 with the launch of a contemporary line that was sold in Barney's New York, Nordstrom, and Macy's as well as numerous other stores throughout the United States and in Japan. Prance, LLC ® is sold to both retailers and clientele through our online website and by appointment in our San Francisco Showroom.
