Fashion Ledge - Lloyd Klein
Lloyd Klein Fall 2002 collection

Lloyd Klein, a true "Aquarian", has always been drawn to the creative process. His college years were spent as a serious student of architecture with studies in Europe and internship in the United States. His appreciation and understanding of this field is evident in the structural elements of his designs. Having attended a Givenchy runway show of Haute Couture in his twenties, his fascination with the art of building design turned into a dedicated romance with fashion design. Without formal fashion school training, he began a self-study of the great fashion artists of Europe and the United States developing a keen interest in the work of such masters as Yves St. Laurent, Jacques Fath and the timeliness of American designer Halston. After his five-season tenure at Grés he terminated his contract to continue his own identity as a designer. Lloyd Klein continued by creating separate seasonal collections ranging from Createur, Couture and Prêt-a-Porter for his own House of Couture. His collections have been presented in London; Milan, Russia and Asia. Lloyd Klein’s private couture clients include the “Who’s Who” of Palm Beach and New York society. Celebrities wearing the creations for appearances or for photo-shoots include: Angela Bassett receiving her M.A.C Fashion Icon Award, Pink on the Cover of Teen People, Paula Abdul hosting VH-1, as well as Gwen Stefani in Arena, Penelope Cruz, Kristen Davis, China Chow, Whitney Houston, Mary J. Blige, Christina Applegate, Nicole Kidman, many others.
