Fashion Designer: Laura Karlin


-Name? Laura Karlin

-DOB? astrology sign? April 29th, Taurus (but I’m not really into that much…)

-Where are you from? Lincoln, NE

-Where do you live now? Lawrence, KS

-Where did you study? University of Nebraska

-What inspires you as a designer? I think beauty in general inspires me; beauty in nature, colors, shape, texture, pretty much anything. And my thoughts about what I would want to wear inspire me – I don’t design anything I wouldn’t put on and walk out of the house in.

-What is your goal as a designer? My goal as a designer is to create clothes that might help people discover what they want to wear and what their personal style is. I don’t think people should/have to wear what I design, but if they see something new they like in one of my designs and make it their own, I see that as success.

-What are your inspirations? I’m not really sure I can put my finger on any specific inspirations I have, because it could really come from anywhere.

-Favorite artists? Titian, Jan van Eyck (old guys)

-Fav photogs? Audrey Hannah

-Fav designers? Valentino, Alexander McQueen, Jason Wu, Balenciaga, Armani Prive, Oscar de la Renta, ZARA (if that counts) and lots more

-If you could see your outfits on any celebrity who would it be? Anyone! But if I could choose, either Blake Lively or Racel Bilson. They’re such fashion icons and trend-setters, it would be a huge honor to have that recognition.

-If you could design for any designer or major fashion house, who would it be? Valentino

-If you could compare your designs to any designer and say that they were similar, who would it be? – Hmm, that’s tough. I do lots of feminine stuff, sort of like Valentino… so maybe that’s the closest? I also really love red clothes. But Valentino is in a WHOLE other league.

-Other hobbies? Movies, watching sports, studying language, shopping (duh!), and meeting new people

-Any upcoming gigs? Uh, continuing to blog and design?
