Lauren Conrad says it’s “pretty crazy” she was given the opportunity to design a Minnie Mouse themed collection for her LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s line.

The former The Hills star has enjoyed huge success already this year, having designed a Cinderella collection for her LC Lauren Conrad line, which is sold exclusively at Kohl’s.

And now she is preparing to released her second themed range – a Minnie Mouse collection due to hit shops and online on May 10.

Speaking about the new line, Lauren said it was only a matter of time before she looked to Minnie for style inspiration.

"We knew from the beginning we had to have a Minnie Mouse collection. You can't work with Disney and not have a Minnie collection!" Lauren told Us Weekly.

“The best part was just having the opportunity to put such an iconic character on one of my pieces. It's pretty crazy that I get to do this."

The collection, which retails for between $36 and $68, includes pretty dresses, skirts and blouses, as well as more casual T-shirts.

While some of the items are typically Minnie Mouse, in red and white, others are more understated.

“We tried to make some pieces in a more subtle way, so from far away, you see dots, but up close the dot is actually a tiny Minnie head with ears!" she said.

"Minnie's the ultimate girly girl, so we stuck some bows in there and lots of polka dots.”

The 29-year-old fashionista models the clothes in a cute photoshoot for the range. And Lauren admitted that when it came to thinking of a concept for the shoot, there was only one thing she had in mind.

"Before the shoot, I told them that my only request was that I get ears," she said. "And the seamstress on set actually made them for me! I still have them; I kept them."
