Congratulations to UCA BA (Hons) Fashion final year student Lauren Bowles @laurenbowlesdesign for being shortlisted for the @officialgfw Fashion Range Plan Award!! Lauren has been working on her own luxury fashion brand ‘LOZ-i’ Wanting the brand to stay personal to her, the name ‘LOZ-i’ is derived from her childhood nickname. Lauren said the inspiration for her Final Collection for LOZ-i, named ‘Rags and Riches’, stemmed from her own ambitious nature. Lauren said “I found my root of ambition during university and I aim to really showcase this through my final major project. My mother always talks of positive affirmation and ambition, and I vaguely remember her telling me when leaving for university “Go Get it Girl” and these words of female positivity inspire my first collection for LOZ-i.” Lauren channels her upbringing by embracing both urban and rural living, blurring the line of cottage and commute through design but particularly through her unique pixelated floral motif. 'Rags and Riches' aims to showcase these messages of ambition and female empowerment but also empower the consumer by feeding their ambition and allowing them to embrace their liberty.
