Guest Blog Series-In the Spotlight: Celebrity Favorite LnA clothing
Phoenix Fashion Week Media Team is excited to announce the introduction of our next blog series, where we will be featuring talented fashion bloggers and their exceptional work on our blog. We will have a different post on the 1st Friday of every month, by guest bloggers hand picked by our team. If you or someone you know is a fashion blogger and is interested in having work featured on our popular blog, email: lauren@phoenixfashionweek.
Lauren Alexander and April Leight are the fabulous designers of the buzz worthy LnA clothing that the fashion world is going crazy over. Celebs like David Beckham, Beyonce, Brad Pitt and so much more have rocked their line. I had a chance to get an interview with them to discuss the fashion industry and their amazing clothing line.
BSF: Where are you from?
LnA: We are both from Southern California. Lauren is from San Diego and April is from Malibu.
BSF: What inspired you to create LnA?
LnA: We wanted to do something really basic. We love to wear simple tees and decided to create one that had the perfect fit and fabric.
BSF: How was the process creating LnA?
LnA: It was a fun and exciting time for us, but we were up against a lot. There were people that told us not to do it and that created some resistance, but we were determined. Every day was hard and we put in a lot of work to get where we are today.
BSF: When coming up with designs, where do you get your inspiration?
LnA: Every season is a new inspiration. Sometimes it’s taken from a certain singer or band, or where we have been in our
travels…it’s really a little bit of everything.
BSF: Who are your influences in fashion?
LnA: Alison Mosshart from The Kills and new model Ashley Smith.
BSF: What was the easiest and hardest part of creating LnA?
LnA: We started the company four years ago and the hardest part is staying on top. The easiest part is designing, that is actually the fun part.
BSF: Tell us who has worn LnA.
LnA: Kate Moss, Kim Kardashian, Beyonce, Kylie Minogue, Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, Eric Dane, Madonna, David Beckham…the list goes on and on.
BSF: Where can people buy your clothing line?
LnA: Shopbop.com, Singer22.com and A. Kinney Court in Venice, CA.
BSF: Do you have any upcoming projects for people to look out for?
LnA: We just launched sunglasses and opticals. They are available at A.Kinney Court now.
BSF: What advice would you give to aspiring designers?
LnA: Work hard and don’t spend your money.
BSF: Where can readers find more about your work?
