Lauren Conrad’s collection is a hit in Kohl’s stores across the country. Now she’s making her mark at New York Fashion Week. The reality star-turned-fashion designer debuted her Spring 2016 collection on Thursday, Sept. 10.
The retail stores may show the latest fall collections, but the runways at New York Fashion Week are all about spring. Lauren Conrad was busy preparing for her big fashion debut behind the scenes. In fact, she’s been preparing all her life for this moment. Conrad spent years making appearances in fashion campaigns and interning at Teen Vogue in order to make her big break. The Laguna Beach star told People that she’s unfazed by the backstage craziness at New York Fashion Week.
“I have an understanding that it’s just complete madness behind the scenes. I’m not really fazed. I’m not surprised when [a model] was being sewn into the dress when she was trying to walk out.”
Just because Lauren understands the fashion industry doesn’t mean she didn’t feel nervous about debuting her new collection, LC Lauren Conrad Runway Collection for Kohl’s.
“I’m new. This is my first time. I don’t think anything prepares you for when it’s your own show. Just dealing with nerves. It’s just been, like, a nuts week. We’ve been working from morning to night. We did all the things to prepare, and you just gotta show up and just hope it goes well and enjoy it.”
Famous faces were also there to support the MTV Hills star. Ashley Tisdale, Chrissy Teigen, Lo Bosworth, and Olivia Culpo sat front and center at Conrad’s show.
The great thing about Lauren’s limited edition collection is that you don’t have to wait until next spring to buy it. It’s available on sale on Amazon, at Kohl’s stores, and on LCRunway.com. Lauren said that her Spring 2016 has everything from “fringe to lace to tulle,” which means it fits every type of girl.
“This was a definite career high for me. The collection is how I wished I always dressed.”
The collection is also vintage inspired. Conrad is typically known for her minimalistic yet feminine and classic style. Her collection also included hints of baby blue and soft pink colors mixed with delicate lace. NY Mag’s The Cut described it as a “happy” and “dreamy runway show.” Some standouts in Conrad’s collection include the white high waist wide-leg pants and matching white long-sleeved scallop lace crop top, which she wore to her own show.
The LC Lauren Conrad Runway Collection isn’t just about the clothes. It also has accessories, handbags, jewelry, shoes, and sunglasses. You won’t be paying high-end prices for Lauren’s collection. Everything in the line is priced from $12 to $300, making it affordable for everyone’s budget.
Hours after Conrad made her debut at New York Fashion Week, she hit up Beauty & Essex with her friends, family, and husband William Tell. According to a previous report via People, they ate apple salad, BBQ fries, kale, petite cupcakes, Thai style shrimp, and tomato soup dumplings. Conrad and her crew stayed in the restaurant’s VIP room, also known as the Locket Room. An inside source told the tabloid that Conrad received a special gift during their private celebration.
“Some of her friends surprised her and brought potted plants as a gift from her runway show and placed it on the tables to give the party a little extra LC style.”
