Lauren’s passion for social enterprise, fair trade practices and supporting the future of the UK manufacturing industry, motivated her to join the inspiring Fashion Studio team in 2017. She departed her position of six and a half years as head of patterns at Topshop Boutique to direct the future growth and expansion of the studio team. At her previous role she lead a pattern cutting team to complete ”Topshop x” collaboration collections such as J.W. Anderson, Marques Almeida, Meadham Kirchoff, Ashish, Richard Nicholl bridal and Mary Katrantzou, alongside the design-led and reactive collections for Topshop Boutique.
Lauren’s employment history includes London Fashion Week designers such as Marios Schwab/Halston, Erdem, Topshop Unique, NYFW designer Kai Kuhne and brands such as All Saints. She has a comprehensive understanding of translating creative design concepts into production efficient clothing and strongly believes in the importance of transferring technical skill to the next generation of fashion talent.
