Lauren Conrad Readies for Her Runway Debut

As if having your first runway show at Los Angeles Fashion Week wasn’t enough, Lauren Conrad is still having to deal with rumors of Heidi Montag‘s competing clothing line. But Heidi’s “affordable fashion” isn’t on Lauren’s radar anyway — the designer not only admits to USA Today her love of Moschino and Marc Jacobs, but her case of nerves about her debut runway collection. “I’m really nervous. It’s one thing to have your designs displayed in stores. To have them walk down the runway is a really big deal,” Lauren says of her eponymous collection. The Hills star admits that without fame she wouldn’t have come so far so fast. But as much as Lauren loves her designer shoes, don’t expect her to be designing them anytime soon. “I don’t know if I would do shoes. I like buying them, but that’s not something I’d be good at designing. I’m gonna stick to buying shoes.” Check out Lauren’s existing line by clicking here, and come back on Wednesday for all the details on her fashion show.

Y does she think her line will sell?
She wants us to buy her overpriced uncreative stuff while she wears Valention, BCBG, etc.


Looks like she may have 2 sell her “$2.7 million Spanish-style mansion just off Sunset Blvd in Los Angeles”… bc sales of her line wont pay that mortgage

…unless MTV is paying her enouf.

IS she gonna graduate from Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising ? She’s been there 4 2yrs already!

@ least Nicki Hilton actualy trained , got a degree, interned , THEN launched her clothes line.

You know, I think her fashion show will be very successful. Her clothes are adorable so I’m sure the clothes she designs will be even more adorable!

In regards to Smiths comment, Lauren actually got celeb status by being on Laguna Beach and then her own spin off, The Hills. So no, Lauren isn’t famous because of her family- like Paris. People enjoy tuning into her life on The Hills. If we all didn’t, the show would have flopped instead of doing well for the past 3 seasons. As far as fashion sense, I like her taste. This is what she is going to school for. This is why she interned at Teen Vogue. She has aspired to be a fashion designer since she has been in high school. So, GO Lauren!!

I think ur doing good Lauren not everybody can do clothing line’s. So I don’t know what their all talking about. With ur style I am sure ur clothing line will do GREAT. I would be nervous to. GOOD LUCK!

Her line is very basic, unimpressive and not that cheap for such simple line and materials. But I guess all those starlet with short-lived stardom have to capitalize on it as fast as they can!
