Model Casting

The Hills star is about to debut her second collection at L.A.'s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, and her show is one of the most anticipated. So much goes into getting a show together and we asked Lauren to document it all with an Olympus Stylus camera. One of the tasks on her to-do list is picking models. They held two four-hour casting sessions at the house of her creative director, Sherry Wood. "We were looking for models with a great walk and a young fresh look," says Lauren. "We saw so many great girls. It was a really successful casting."

Shopping for Flowers

"Flowers!" exclaims Lauren of all the appliques she hunted for. "Sherry and I went to Michael Levine, which is a great fabric store in the fashion district in downtown L.A., to look for flowers that work with the colors in the line. We incorporated a floral print into the Spring collection so I wanted to use flowers in the overall look of the runway show. I have been seeing so many floral head pieces on the runway lately and I love it. I also wanted different types of the flowers that could be bunched together."

Stocking Up on Supplies

Sherry and Lauren continue their shopping at Michael Levine. "We had to sort though a large bin of silk flowers and get ribbon, felt and glue guns," Lauren says of their excursion. "The store has a giant wall of flowers and buttons—different price points, colors, styles and fabrics." A dream for any hands-on designer!
