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.

I wish Lauren all the best! She deserves it! For all the haters on here who are ripping on her for her style and collection obviously don’t know much about fashion or the time it takes to put a collection like that together.

I totally agree with “Emmi” and “Peeps” on this one, especially peeps.
To me- Lauren always looks like a “blob.”
She never wears anything shapely or fitting.
I do understand that her style and clothing line represent the “laid back” California lifestyle, but she looks totally “laid back” all day, every day!
She needs to wear some brighter colors, some more daring looks, and, PLEASE another fabric besides cotton or nylon!
Her line looks like Sarah Jessica Parkers, which, in case anyone didn’t know, averages around $5 per ITEM!!
She is basically scamming little girls who look up to her into buying her clothes simply because she grew up in Laguna Hills and somehow got “famous.”

Her clothes are cute, but way overpriced!

Her line looks very boring–it’s already all over the street.

She is pretty…but that’s all she is. She is no better than Paris because all she did to gain “fame” is by being on a reality show. Big whoop. Her clothes are too overpriced for looking like big cotton shapeless bags. And she should finish graduating from FIDM before making a line. Just because she’s “famous”, she has it easy by getting a runway show.

Since I don’t see any of your names on any labels on ANY clothing lines, nor have I ever seen any of your names on any runway shows, I think you better think twice about what you say, because obviously none of you have a CLUE about fashion. And just so you know Lauren already graduated. And was one of the YOUNGEST interns at Teen Vogue – don’t see any of you that have achieved something as amazing as that. And for any of you to slam her for her looks, you must ALL be supermodels!!! Amazing how you can sit back on your little computers and talk smack about someone but not get out in the real world and actually do something with your life. At least Lauren is following her dreams and is doing what she set out to do. And in this business it’s definitely not easy! And for all you other haters, yes, she got “known” for being on a reality show, but obviously became very well liked or they wouldn’t have given her her own show that is now in its fourth year!!!! So there you go, maybe you all should go do something positive with your day or at least say something nice to a random person on the street, it might make you feel a little better for being such a negative person in general!!
