Lauren Conrad suspends clothing line

Lauren Conrad feels the credit crunch, as she cancels eponymous fashion line

Looks like even celebrities aren’t immune from the recession, as Lauren Conrad has put her eponymous fashion line on hold in light of the current financial climate.

The Hills star has been designing the label since autumn 2007, but has put a halt on production, following slow sales. Even the spring collection has been halted, leading cancellation of all pre-placed retailer orders.

Speaking to Lauren’s representation, People confirmed, ‘She’s taking a few seasons off so she can rework the line — but it will be coming back with Lauren (continuing) as the designer.’

Reports indicate that Conrad will revamp the line for its relaunch, moving beyond the signature style that defined her initial lines.
