Better late than never? Here’s hoping that this is abundantly true when it comes to this post. Yes I know New York Fashion Week was nearly three weeks ago (where have I been right?), but no matter how long ago it was, and no matter how late this post may be, one look at Lauren Conrad’s Spring Collection and I’m sure all my readers will understand why I had to still dedicate a post to it. I’ve always been LC’s biggest fan with anything she does, I mean the girl is as stylish as they come, and so it was no surprise to see what magnificent creations she came up with for her first ever show at NYFW.
We all know LC from her days on Laguna Beach and The Hills, but since then she has made a name for herself in her own right, becoming one of the most highly accredited fashion designers, bestselling book author and running her infamous fashion and beauty blog. In other words, LC has created her own brand, a lifestyle brand. And what makes this brand so popular amongst everyone you ask? The ‘relatability’. LC shows herself to be someone down to earth and living a life not much different from the rest of us. So of course her debut to NYFW was no different.
LC was debuting a limited edition capsule collection of her Kohl’s line, and it was a treat for the eyes. The show was just like LC herself, solid, appealing and uncontroversial. From the ‘happy-go-lucky’ music that played whilst the models strut their stuff, to the very ‘Pinterest worthy’ outfits that donned the runaway; the entire evening was perfection. True to her LC style, the entire Kohl collection was available to buy online after the show, at very reasonable prices as well. According to Vanity Fair; you could have the same ‘scallop lace’ crop top LC was wearing for only $45 (R600)… Does it get better than that?
Although there were so so many amazing designers that featured at NYFW (Be sure to check out Rachel Zoe, Tommy Hilfiger and Michael Kors!) Lauren Conrad was by far my favourite, as her collection incorporated all of my favourite fashion trends. Pastels, crop tops, lace, velvet shorts and just the right amount of shimmer; to name a few things. Most importantly, in my books, is presentation. From the stunning floral backdrop to the invites attached to bouquets of flowers to the pretty white benches and wooden chairs with white seat covers. It also can’t hurt to have the front row filled with Hollywood’s A list celebs eagerly awaiting to see what pieces their bestie LC has put together. Dare I say, that if I ever had to have a show at NYFW I would probably want it to be just like LC? Yes I said it.
After the huge success of LC’s first Fashion Week Collection, here’s hoping we have not seen the last of her at Fashion Week – maybe Paris and London next year?
