Lauren Cecchi says she always knew that one day she would have her own fashion line. She started her career studying Fashion and business, did various stints as a visual stylist, runway event planner and luxury brand buyer and travelling the world before honing in on the concept for her namesake brand.
Lauren is also keen about giving back to her community in New York by ensuring that all aspects of her bag are made locally. Each bag is handcrafted with high quality cowhide leather from a tannery in Upstate New York; the bags and hardware are manufactured right in the heart of the New York City Garment District.
At Runway2Street, we are excited to feature Lauren’s Empire Collection -- a timeless interpretation of the sophistication and elegance of her favorite city, New York. The colors of the collection were meticulously custom tanned, chosen to represent the pavements, hot city streets, night skies and city lights for FW14 and for SS14 the playful colors of open air markets, the produce and summers in the city. We love the clean lines, chunky hardware, beautiful craftsmanship and timeless allure of these bags. Perfect for everyday wear.
