I am a true designer at heart, though my creativity has taken on many forms throughout the years.
After graduating from Michigan State, I traded in my Midwestern upbringing for big city dreams and moved to New York. I landed an internship and later a job designing handbags after entering and winning a contest through Lucky Magazine to design a bag for Elliott Lucca. A bag I designed was in department stores before I even graduated college. That serendipitous moment has led to over a decade in the accessory design.
In 2008, after a few years in the fashion industry, I started my OG blog, Undeclared Panache, as a collection of my musings and fashion endeavors and later shifted to also include interiors, DIY and lifestyle.
A few years later I married my college best friend. I meticulously designed and crafted every detail of the day and caught the wedding bug. Friends began asking me for help and advice in planning their days. Before I knew it, my events business, I Love Love Events, was born!
Lauren Koster Creative is the marrying of my two entrepreneurial endeavors, offering customized design and decor for weddings and events, as well as wardrobe and prop styling for photo shoots and small business websites. In addition, my lifestyle blog is full of free content for readers to enjoy while getting a glimpse into my work and personal life.
