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.

Oh good, so she’s designing new garbage sacks? What on earth is she holding up? The newest drapery meant to disguise the anorexic frames of wannabes? Pfft.

At least she admits she wouldn’t be where she is had MTV not rubbed her and her airhead friends onto our TV screens. If she can do it surely the rest of us can… how hard is something like that to design? Not very.

I think she is charging a little too much for basic pieces in the same basic materials. None of her designs are unique or fashion forward at all! I can put that $100+ towards a better name in the fashion industry.

I just went to her website. Some of the clothes are ok I think I saw maybe two tops I liked but the prices are crazy! $94 for a top is nuts!

think LC is hot and so is her line

who cares on

I’m not fond of Lauren, or of her show. That being said, there is nothing really wrong with her clothing line, except it is overpriced and many of the clothes look similar to what I can find at any store for a much cheaper price. If they were in my price range, I might buy one or two of her tops, but not endorse in her entire line.
As to those who have said that she is not classy, I sort of agree. What I think is that her hair and makeup can look classy, and her clothingcan very occasionally, but she always appears slouchy. Not just her posture, but also her clothes.
I’d like to add that I am 17 and this is my opinion, so saying it is a line only teenagers would buy is insulting.

The clothes are cute, but not very original. I can’t really see them as fitting (no pun intended) for a runway show, as I associate shows with more creativity. Reminds me of the C+C California line, which as far as I’m aware, does not have runway shows.

Bottom line: Cute, basic clothes that look better accessorized. Better suited for online sales and the like.

First of all, Best of luck to you LC you deserve nothing but the best…I love watching “The Hills” I believe that you are a deserving individual that has tried to be true to yourself and strived for what you want and have gotten there. Go for it girl. Good Luck! As far as the other comments posted I didn’t realize this was a bash Lauren session! If you don’t have kind things to say, keep them to yourself.

s on

overpriced dont you think. they are cute clothes, but overpriced.

Kay on

Good luck and may God continue blessing…

I too agree she should stick to buying clothes. The Audrina dress however is very cute, but it looks like something Forever21 would have designed… and they are a LOT less expensive.
