Lawren Howell’s clean, care free and optimistic style can be attributed to her Northern California upbringing where rugged coast lines, open country and horses shaped her childhood. She began her career in NYC in 2002 working in the creative department of Kate Spade and Jack Spade. From there she moved on to Vogue to be the assistant to the Editor in Chief and it was there, under Anna Wintour, that Lawren learned the inner workings and production of each issue from start to finish. She transitioned into an assistantship with Phyllis Posnick, with whom she worked and matured under. In 2006 Lawren was made Vogue’s West Coast Fashion Editor, and moved back to California and began focusing on styling celebrity portraits. In addition to being Vogue’s go to fashion editor on the West Coast, Lawren’s role consists of styling various fashion shows such as the annual Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund show and sponsored charity shows. Through her intimate work with Vogue, she has been able to cultivate relationships with designers and photographers such as Norman Jean Roy, Patrick Demarchelier and Sebastian Kim.
