Inspired by elements of art and architecture, with astute attention to draping, tailoring and finish in every piece, the work of Lauren Bagliore combines an edgy modern strength and sensibility while still retaining a romantically reflective femininity. That is why Bagliore creates bold and timeless pieces for women of all ages, shapes, sizes, and stature—women of ALL walks of life, that set the wearer apart and help her to feel empowered in her everyday life.
A New York native, Bagliore graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology and immediately began to work with a slew of exceptional fashion brands where she honed skills that prepared her to launch her own brand. Upon graduation, Vivienne Westwood chose Bagliore to travel to London and work at her UK fashion house. After a few years, Bagliore returned to New York and worked for Zac Posen, Libertine and Tod’s as well as freelance work as a buyer and a stylist.
Lauren Bagliore has been featured in WomensWear Daily, Fashion Magazine, Nylon, Untitled Magazine, Elle Canada, Marie Claire, West Jet Magazine, National Post, Prestige, Soma Magazine, and in numerous other publications. As well, business mogul Arlene Dickinson and musicians Icona Pop, Beyonce, Dear Rouge, Sarah Slean and Kreayshawn have been all seen wearing Lauren Bagliore pieces.
The Lauren Bagliore collection features her signature buttery-soft Italian jersey dresses that are draped into breathtaking pieces of wearable art in a muted color palette of soft grays mixed with the most graphic of blacks and starkest of whites. Kimono jackets in Italian ponte intermingle with inventive asymmetrical separates. Wool tweeds are pieced and formatted to create Op Art illusions. Windbreaker nylons are reinvented into tailored trenches and padded boleros. Many of the pieces are convertible and day morphs into night instantly with the twist of a wrap or by layering or removing items. The Lauren Bagliore Concept Shop opened November 2014 till 2020 in Canada, featuring the exclusive Lauren Bagliore Collection as well as exclusive Italian niche perfume and footwear lines. The first true Concept Shop in Calgary Canada, Lauren Bagliore Concept Shop was the first a brick and mortar store to offer a full-service luxury and lifestyle concept and now operates as a pop-up shop model in New York, Paris, and various locations globally expanding reach and exposure to new market opportunities.
