A chic peek at the new LC Lauren Conrad Celebrate collection at Kohl's

My newest book, Celebrate, has officially been on bookshelves for two weeks! I hope that everyone who has picked up a copy is finding it fun and useful. Flipping through the pages of Celebrate is like getting a special glimpse into real life soirees that I’ve thrown for my friends and family. From birthday parties to clam bakes and everything in between, this book will transform you into the hostess with the mostest.

When planning a party, one of my primary concerns usually has to do with what I’m going to wear. So in honor of my recent Celebrate book release, it only felt appropriate to create an LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s collection inspired by the parties found within the book’s pages. Instead of your typical Chic Peek post where I share only the final images of the collection, today I’m sharing a bit of my design process too. From sketches to fabric swatches to the final look book images, below is your backstage pass to all things LC Lauren Conrad. I hope you enjoy this little behind-the-scenes peek at what it takes to design a collection…
