Fashion Ledge - Lura Starr
Lura Starr Spring 08

Designer, Niki Schwan has a long-term background in wardrobe styling and continues to work as a wardrobe stylist in LA. She has had two very successful boutiques and is very well appraised in the press for her designs. Her collection, Lura Starr, has a high-end celebrity clientele, which includes Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon, Bette Midler, Mary J Blige, Jenna Elfman, Courtney Love, etc. and continued press coverage in Spanish Vogue (cover), Rolling Stone (cover), Stuff, WWD, BAZAAR, Maxim and more.

This new line is a 25+ piece silk dress collection inspired from the classic styles that she has always been known for doing so well. The inspiration for this collection is reminiscent of the 70's; Brigitte Bardot lounging and performing in the South of France, and the ever-sexy Sophia Loren on the sands of the Italian Riviera. "I feel like this is by far the strongest collection I have ever worked on, and it will mostly consist of ready to wear dresses, all silk, with various price points. Sexy, feminine, classic and timeless", says Niki. The dresses are cut to enhance the natural curves of a woman's body (of any size!). Boning and breast cups have been added for extra support on the more tailored items; classic colors are mixed with Parisian laces and Italian trims for perfectly tailored silhouettes as well as flowy feminine lines with a modern and wearable edge.

Most of the dresses are perfectly paired with jeweled flip-flops or dressed up with beautiful stilettos. This collection will bring out the vintage glamour in any woman. The Lura Starr collection retails between $600-$1000.
