Dust Drunk Love was founded in 2021 by husband and wife team, Beth Lauck and Peter Kravatz. The couple met six years ago and quickly discovered they shared a love of thrifting, vintage and fashion. Beth designs coats and clothes from vintage textiles, and brings over 20 years of retail experience and two Master’s degrees to this project. Her first Masters is from Harvard University in Religion, Gender and Culture and the second is from Italy’s premier fashion design school, Polimoda, in Fashion Trend Forecasting. Peter is in charge of merchandising and design experience, and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience from his time managing restaurants and casinos in California. Together, they’re a powerhouse team committed to disrupting the fashion industry by reimagining objects of the past, reviving forgotten art forms and industries, and championing an artisanal approach to craftsmanship. Recently the couple moved to Las Vegas & have a pop up location inside For the love, LV a Las Vegas boutique.
In addition to vintage clothing and home goods, Dust Drunk Love offers a unique collection of exquisitely hand-crafted coats and clothes fashioned from reclaimed antique quilts, vintage textiles and blankets. Each piece is rich with story, stitching together layers of personal histories, vintage fabrics and craftsmanship that mark the ingenuity, cultural values and resourcefulness of their makers. Dust Drunk Love invites us to remember that in reimagining these traditions, we connect the past to our present and participate in a more sustainable future.
