Fashion Gone Wrong
By Carolyn, age 16, Dominican Republic
As you may know, Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag from The Hills have launched their own clothing lines, wishing every Hills fan look like an L.A. girl. There's only one problem - the clothing lines they launched were too L.A. Critics from the fashion world were very disappointed, as Lauren recently graduated from L.A.'s Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, so they really didn't expect this to happen.
Heidiwood - that's what Montag has named her line. Heidi recently signed with Anchor Blue to launch her line which was out April 15 with two thumbs down. Now, in my opinion, it's not that bad for girls 19 and up. It's just too chic. There are a lot of sleeveless, shorts, skirts, striped dresses, colorful tank tops, signature t-shirts, and some bags and jewelry which are hideous. She should have made more teenage stuff, more things we can actually wear, because most of the things she created are too grown up. Heidi and Lauren should know that 80% of their public are teens. If my information is correct Heidi will design two more collections for this line. Oh, we just wish she takes this lesson to heart ...

Lauren's launch didn't go so well either. Rumor has it that everyone named it tragique, as in French for tragic. I guess she was so into Paris that she made her line too French for American girls. Fashion editors evaluated her line at nothing more than 10 to 60 dollars for any piece.
Ms. Conrad says she's trying to create a line of clothes that she and her friends could wear. Big mistake! Editors say that she doesn't listen to anyone. She's a big head (lol), and her advisors are actual professionals who have worked with such people as Mark Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Donna Karan, and so on. Critics who attended L.A.'s Fashion Week say they felt like being dropped into the middle of an episode of The Hills. Even though we all know Lauren has a sense of style maybe she doesn't have it to dress up others.

We all hope they learn from this experience. We know they're great designers and that they have a great sense of style. They're always wearing the latest and greatest, but this time their fashion sense went wrong. The fashion world is like the ocean - the fishes are there for the sharks to eat. We have to learn to grow and fight with those sharks to prove we're big too, and that were good as well ...
