Lauren Conrad: Minnie Mouse is my idol
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."
