Lauren Stucky Designs
I first learned about designer Lauren Stucky from obtaining her business card from my boyfriend’s father. He obtained said business card from a friend of Lauren’s on an airplane while traveling back home from the Rose Bowl Game. This is a moment that I can only describe as serendipitous (one of my favorite words). Since then I have been in contact with Lauren and have been perpetually in awe of her incredible designs. So to give you a bit of background on the designer, Lauren grew up in Portland, Oregon (where I am currently living. See! Serendipitous.) After majoring in Fashion Design from FIDM L.A. Lauren became and L.A. based designer with a timeless, artistic European vibe. Lauren captures the look of luxury through her designs and choice of materials, while infusing a refined edge and sophistication. From her first collection in spring of 2011, she has only continued to grow as a designer and to refine her unique aesthetic. Now we all know that I love leather and fur and those are two materials that Lauren uses and uses oh so well. From her dresses to jackets, all the pieces are wearable and complement a woman with a sense of style. Basically since the first day her business card was handed to me, I have been in love with the looks that Lauren Stucky designs and am so excited to finally share some of her amazing images with you. And, if you are so inclined (which you should be, trust me), you can follow Lauren on Twitter (@LaurenMStucky), on Tumblr (Lauren Stucky Designs), on Facebook (Lauren Stucky Designs) and on Instagram @LaurenStucky. She is truly an upcoming designer and a talent you don’t want to miss. P.S. You can now shop her fall 2012 collection online!
