Recently I discovered an unknown designer (to me) by the name of Abigail Lorick. Abigail was born on Amelia Island in Florida, at the age of 18 she moved to Paris and Milan to model for Alberta Ferretti and Mossimo and was featured in magazines such as French Cosmopolitan, American Elle, and American Harper’s Bazaar. While modeling was a great experience for her she then moved to New York in 2003 where she studied fashion at the Fashion Institute of Technology. Then in 2004 she began designing entire collections for T.S. Dixin and after a few seasons her production manager asked her to design her own collection. In Spring of 2007 she created and begins the Lorick brand.
After doing some research on Lorick I found that her clothing has had starring roles on Gossip Girl, a show I still haven’t gotten into. Her clothing doubles as Eleanor Waldorf’s label in the show and gets seen by millions of young ladies all over. Lorick’s Spring collections feature lots of feminine, tailored looks with classic, clean and flattering lines.
This has my personal style written all over it! I love the way that Lorick affectionately shows of the woman’s form with the fabrics and textures that she uses. The prints that she uses in her Spring collection are often unseen in other designers and the way she embraces a woman’s form with structure and gentle fabrics. The color palate are ice-cream based colors, seashore washes, and gold’s. Structured blouses, tulips skirts, 50’s style cocktail dresses and fun speckled scribble patterns complete the overall pretty look of her collection. I absolutely love this collection because it describes me as a person and if I could afford to buy whatever I wanted, I would only wear this all day, every day!
