Laura first set up her business Instagram account in 2017 to find Love Island must-haves.
Speaking to North Wales Live, Laura said: ‘It all started when I was watching Love Island in 2017, and I really liked some of the girls’ outfits
‘So I started searching the internet trying to find them and when I did, I posted about it on Instagram.

The 21-year-old student was inspired after wanting to find outfits worn by Love Island contestants in 2017, and now she dedicates time to discover the fashion must-haves from this year’s show. Pictured: Laura’s account
‘I’ve spent a lot of time shopping online myself and I realised as soon as I’d seen an outfit I liked, I was quick at finding out where it was from.
‘I started helping my friends find the clothes that they liked from the show, and that’s how it all took off because there was nothing like this out there at the time.’
Fans send her a direct message telling her what they are looking for and Laura, who doesn’t charge for her services, will search online for the exact match, or something similar.

Laura, who plans to do something that mixes media with the fashion industry when she graduates, added: ‘When a popular show comes on such as Love Island or I’m a Celebrity, I get lots of people contacting me asking me to track down outfits.
‘I must get at least 100 messages a day. I’ve searched for all sorts of clothing, accessories and jewellery.
‘It’s great being able to help people and I get some lovely messages from girls thanking me, which makes it all worthwhile.’
