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.

Her style is AWFUL. I do like the Audrina dress, but I can probably find something just as cute at Forever21 with the same style and a fraction of the cost… and I don’t even like the “hobo” look! If Heidi is coming out with a line, I hope she reads these remarks on Lauren’s line and decides to take a different approach… I don’t mind spending $$$ but her crap isn’t even runway material.

It would be interesting to see if she could even qualify for Project Runway…

I wish Lauren the best of luck. Not too many people believe in her talent as a fashion designer so I hope she can prove them all wrong!

I loved the old underdog feel of Lauren, and when she got her own show I was really happy because I’m like she’s in LA she will get crazy and live a little. I’m sad to say Lauren is a stiffy and wears cute things but she is soooooooooooooo plain. I don’t understand who would want to invest in Lauren’s “closet” because that’s what she is selling, the clothes out her closet!. The most plain clothes I have ever seen. Lauren, go to a paint store and see that other colors are on the color spectrum and ooo you can mix them and put them with other colors!

it’s all just overpriced draped fabric pieces you could get anywhere or even make yourself. why waste the $$$$$$$?????

I am a fan of JC as much as the next person, but I just looked at all her collections and they all look the same. It’s like she created a dress then chopped that in half to creat a top. I know you like draping in all, but come on show some versitility will ya.
