Fame and Partners’ designer Laura–who you might remember from our Bespoke Bridal Collection–is back to talk about her latest designs: our brand-new Holiday Collection. Read on to find out her inspiration, her one must-have piece, and what’s currently on rotation in her closet!
FAME: What was the inspiration behind The Holiday Collection?
Laura: This collection was inspired by the classic glamour of the ’80s. We wanted to create a feminine collection that was both romantic and alluring with an all-that-glistens vibe. Statement sleeves, floaty ruffles, luxurious lace, rich velvet and metallic fabrics were key. There was a core focus on refreshing our best-sellers and designing statement cocktail dresses that could be worn on many occasions.
FAME: What is your personal favorite piece from the collection and where would you wear it?
Laura: My favorite has to be the Siggy Dress (above). A signature style, I love the rich opulent velvet, the beautiful draped neckline and button detailing down the sides of the skirt. It’s the perfect classic cocktail dress that I desperately want in my wardrobe. I am going to wear this for NYE and then again for date night!
FAME: What three types of dresses should every woman have in her closet?
Laura: 1. It’s been said many times before, because it’s so true, every girl needs a classic black cocktail dress. This is an essential piece, it’s all about a great flattering fit, special fabric and a style that is perfectly timeless. I personally have at least 6 (maybe even 10) that already fall into this category.
2. The showstopper. This is a dress you can count on to make you stand out from the crowd. It’s a statement piece and is for those confident days, a dress you enjoy wearing for all the right reasons.
3. The faithful throw-it-on dress. We all need one of these, this is our “best friend,” it’s the one we can turn to again and again, it’s the dress when you have just minutes to make a decision and you know it will always feel comfortable and look amazing. Paired with different shoes or accessories, it can look completely different every single time. This is a must!
