    :blink: That was fast. The media is reporting that "The Hills" star Lauren Conrad is putting her fashion line on hold. Her reps say that although her first season's line doubled the sales projections, the economy has forced the starlet to rework her line. Sounds like P.R talk for the line isn't selling.

    I have seen her collection and, for the price, I was not impressed. Many of her fans are very young and the majority of them can't afford to pay over $200 for a cheap looking cotton dress.

    What do you think of her line?

    These pictures are from the nymag.....

    She has fans??
    :p

    It's about time her line faded. I'm sorry but watching paint dry would be more interesting that watching her line of L.A. tangerine-appealing smocks.
    I will say though, it is a tad better than Heidi Montag's line (I will not say it!)

    Lowering the price point... Yes, really, it is necessary.

    Wow, this is the first time I'm actually looking at her designs. I was expecting her line to be hideous but this exceeds those expectations. I can't believe she was charging anything higher than $15 for those clothes. They look like they came from the lower end of a Forever 21 collection.

    The line is made in the US, which explains why the pricing isn't closer to Forever 21. But I agree, it is most definitely overpriced.

    I'm so shocked!!!!....NOT. They were having a huge clearance of her stuff at Kitson about a month or so ago with everything being $10 or less. I knew something was up. Her "designs" were laughable and at the price point, this was inevitable.

    if she's working on stuff for S/S 10, why is she saying she's also taking a few seasons off?

    Surprise surprise...and I would like to know exactly when she got the impression that she had ANY place in the fashion world, internship at whatever mag + crap reality show about absolutely nothing doesn't exactly demand merit from me or lead to designing :ninja:

    It seems most people can't read. Her line isn't closing. She just won't be producing Summer or Fall collections this year and is working ahead to Spring 2010.
