Ever wanted to learn more about the designer and inspiration behind the Fondue Fete Dress or other Lauren Moffatt pieces? Well, you’ve come to the right place! We met up with Lauren in her New York studio to check out her Fall 2011 collection and hear her thoughts on her own pieces, which are now available at ModCloth.
Keep reading for a peek at Lauren’s studio, her story as a designer, or click on the collages to see the product details for each perfect piece!
A Philly native, Lauren was 24 when she left her job as a graphic designer and moved to the Big Apple to follow her love for fashion. “My business partner and I started the collection 12 years ago on a sailboat,” she says. “Docked on the Hudson, we sewed our first collections on the boat and continued to live on it for five years. It was an economical way to live in NY and start a business.”
Above, the designer puts the finishing touches on one of the pieces. Using high quality materials such as Merino wool and silk, Lauren fashioned a fall collection replete with unique details, whether it’s an interesting color combination, a one-of-a-kind floral print, or a cute detachable collar. “We named our Fall lookbook ‘You Can Take the Girl Out of the Country,'” laughs Moffatt.

I LOVE this. Lauren Moffatt is one of my favorite designers. This fall collection is full of such wonderful colors, delicate details, and beautiful femininity. I just love it all!
Oh man, Lauren Moffatt is great. I have wanted every piece in that fall collection since the look book came out months ago. FYI your “now available” link is dead. I think its a misspelling.
Thank you Erin…
That fondue dress is just stunning…
This is so adorable, I love the 70s vibe and the color! Such a talented designer, I might have to get myself something!
That dress if beautiful! I’m officially obsessed!
