Somehow we saw this coming and we didn’t want to say anything to jinx it, but it happened and somewhere out there we hear Heidi Montag laughing her head off. “The Hills” star, Lauren Conrad’s clothing line is going through a “hiatus” due to the current economy situation. LC launched her clothing line in 2007 and apparently the line has been going through some real rough patches, starting with Kitson dropping the collection last year due to slow sales. As reported bv People, LC’s reps said, “In light of the economic climate, Lauren has decided to rethink her line. She’s taking a few seasons off so she can rework the line, but it will be coming back with Lauren as the designer.” It’s also said that LC will be considering different fabric options and get out of her jersey-dominated line.
Our real question is:
Is she really gonna come back with new stuff or is this just sweet talk? Thoughts?
So apparently LC tried to do some damage control over her clothing line’s “situation”. Here’s what she wrote in her own blog.
Just clearing something up…
Current mood: excited
I want to take a moment to clear something up. A few days ago a statement was released to the showrooms that carry my clothing line. It asked them to let the stores know that I was planning to take a couple seasons off from my line so that I could make some changes that I felt were necessary. As a result, a lot of people were under the impression that my line was being discontinued or had been dropped. This isn’t the case at all. The truth is I was the one who asked to take a couple seasons off. I have learned so much in the past year and I want to apply that to the improvement of my clothing line. I also wanted to make some changes in production so I would be able to lower the price point.
That being said, I am actually really excited about beginning this process. I have spent the last couple weeks working on designs for spring, which is when I am planning to bring the (new and improved) line back. I also have some very exciting things going on that will be announced shortly.
So stay tuned!
Okay. We don’t think that really helps. It’s on hiatus, so it’s on hiatus no matter who ended it. We don’t hate LC’s clothing line, and if she wants to “lower the price point” so her upcoming “new and improved” line won’t make us be “under the impression” of them being “discontinued or had been dropped”, then we’ll wait!
