The Style of Lauren Chan

2 years ago by

Lauren Chan fait partie de ces gens qui vous donnent l’impression de les connaître depuis des années, même si vous venez juste de la rencontrer. Elle est chaleureuse, charmante, drôle et elle a toujours quelque chose d’intéressant à dire.

Je connais vraiment Lauren depuis des années, depuis l’époque où elle était éditrice chez Glamour. En tant que mannequin grande taille, elle consacrait une part importante de son énergie à promouvoir les contenus destinés aux femmes grande taille dans le magazine. Quand elle l’a quitté pour devenir freelance, je sentais qu’elle allait faire passer son travail à un autre niveau.

Et, comme on peut le voir aujourd’hui, j’avais raison. Lauren va lancer à l’automne sa marque, Henning, pour offrir des basiques chics et élégants destinés à un public grande taille. Je suis plus qu’impatiente de voir ce qu’elle va faire.

Les vêtements ne sont pas encore sortis donc, pour nous faire patienter, nous avons rencontré Lauren l’autre jour, pile au moment où le printemps commençait à pointer derrière les nuages, pour capturer sa beauté et son style cool et accessible.

(English) Describe your style in 3 words or phrases.
Right now my style is minimal, tailored, and practical.

What is your ideal outfit or uniform?
My uniform changes depending on my job. When I was a model, it was jeans and a tee because that’s a go-to casting outfit. When I was a fashion editor, it was tailoring because I needed to look sharp for the office. Now that I run my own fashion brand, it’s somewhere in the middle—a button-down with jeans or dress with a blazer—because I could be in meetings or running around the garment district, but need to look put-together regardless.

Tell us a little bit about Henning. Why did you decide to start your own brand? How does it align with your own personal style and values?
Henning is my forthcoming brand of high-quality, fashion-minded workwear in sizes 12 and up. The first collection is made up of pieces that I wish I had while I was working as a fashion editor: power suits, day-to-night dresses, go-everywhere coats, et cetera. My mission is to prove that women size 12 and up want clothing of a higher caliber—and, moreover, that they deserve it.

What are you excited about right now in fashion and media?
Right now, I’m excited about fashion brands making sustainability appealing: Reformation’s plus-size expansion, Everlane’s new sneakers, For Days’ subscription model—the list goes on.

    Lauren’s style is SO killer! I love her!

  • Thankyou Christina I love your empathetic writing and am so glad to see you are filling a gaping hole in the fashion designer industry for people who are not fashion model size …..you are in a position to question the fashion industry and indeed are doing something about it
