FashionA SPRING Fling with Jason Wu!!

This spring, women around the world are having a fling with fashion designer Jason Wu. Watch the models walk the catwalk below, in his pieces which were created and sewn to fit each and every model!

Jason Wu‘s Spring 2010 Collection has inspired the masses to adorn lofty, draped, chiffon dresses everywhere and anywhere. For example (below), this wonderful style dress was first seen on the runway at the Jason Wu show, then on Zoe Saldana at the T Magazine Party on Style.com.

And last, but certainly not least, we have the same style of adorable dress, otherwise known as the Conversation Hearts Dress sold out!], at Lulus.com!!

FashionLulus.com Model Profile!!

We have been doing model profiles and interviews with models from our vintage section, however, we have not yet done a profile on any of the in-house LuLu*s models!

So, I am here to introduce you to one of the first Lulus.com models and one that will be leaving us and moving to LONDON this month! We are sad but very excited for her and (selfishly) can’t wait to get fashion updates from London!!!

Here is Serine…. and she is, needless to say, one of the funkiest and fun models I have EVER worked with! Below are some pics done outside LuLu*s (in my designs) for a little sneak peak into her “real” personality!! Keep posted this week for the newest pictures of Serine in CUTE dresses on Lulus.com!!

Serine was born in Santa Cruz, California. She grew up in San Francisco, and then moved to Chico, California, for high school. During her junior year of high school, Serine got an internship at the LuLu*s Fashion Lounge boutique in downtown Chico.

Soon after she began her internship, the Lulus.com website was launched, and she became one of the online team! Now, Serine does everything from modeling on the site to supervising and coordinating our inventory.

In her time off, Serine travels. Her favorite places are Serbia, Croatia, London, Amsterdam, Bosnia, Switzerland, Greece, and Rome. At the end of this month, Serine is actually leaving us and moving to London. When she gets there, Serine plans to work in the fashion industry.

Pictures were taken by Daniel De Porres and Kyle Delmar.

FashionFashion Train to ECLISSI!

After coming back from NYC (and missing out on Fashion Week this year), I have been itching to throw a fashion show.

Soooo, the other day I decided to have an impromptu and very small fashion show in an old train car that has been recently turned into a cafe called Empire Coffee. It was for a small line of clothing/evening pieces that I did and that I call Eclissi (after the Italian word for eclipse).

I thought I would stage it as if the guests were first-class passengers on a “fashion train” (totally cheesy but it was fun). After getting on the train and sitting down (on old school train seats) the music would start and the models would walk down the aisle of the train car.

The music was a remix of a song done by the Kronos Quartet and composed by Steve Reich called Different Trains. I wanted it to sound old school, like the train, and intense to set a stage for the girls to walk down the aisle.

All in all, the show turned out well (I think)! The most fun part was that all of the LuLu*s models were there, and the makeup was done by our very own makeup artist, Nyala! Here are the backstage pics, shot by Lulus.com stylist Cara:

 

Here I am (above to the right) trying to hold two dresses that are twice my size backstage! And below (from left to right), Cara our stylist, Marty our photographer, and one of our favorite earring designers, Claire Fong (who did all the earrings for the show)!
