NLA Stylist Launches Swoon-Worthy Collection

Nicolette Lang-Andersen launched Swoon, her first foray into fashion design at Yaletown fashion hotspot Fine Finds Boutique. Wednesday, June 15th, was a day this personal stylist and fashion mavens dream was realized.

Crystal Carson and Nicolette Lang-Andersen

Lang-Andersen is an experienced personal stylist, having spent over seven years in the industry. Born in South Africa and having lived in the UK for most of her adult life, Nicolette moved to Vancouver with a goal of continuing her career in fashion. In a short time, she immersed herself in the Lower Mainland fashion community, working with individual clients, local retailers, and emerging fashion designers. Lang-Andersen also teaches Fashion Styling at various local schools.

It was only when Lang-Andersen became pregnant with her first child that she was able to take some time away and give focus to an idea that she had been mulling for some time. She had the idea to create a piece that any woman, regardless of body shape, could feel confident wearing. Swoon is the product of that idea.

The collection centers around the idea of the perfect dress to fit any woman. As Lang-Andersen says in her own words: “After working with women from all walks of life, with all types of body shapes, I learned that one of the common challenges that they came up against was the difficulty in finding classic pieces among all the trends that worked for their body shape and size.  I wanted to produce a single item that offers a solution.”

The button-down dress with cinched waist currently comes in two solids, black and white, and in two patterns, a black and white Polka dot, and a black and white stripe. The limited palette and bold prints allow the wearer to dress in comfort and accessorize with flare and imagination to create a personal statement that will ooze confidence.

Swoon-worthy pieces!

The event itself was crammed with many familiar faces on the fashion scene, who were all out in force to support Lang-Andersen in her latest venture, which is no surprise as Lang-Anderson is very well regarded following her many years supporting and working within the Vancouver fashion industry.

Her dedication to fashion was clearly seen in the collection, but also in the details of the event itself; the canapes, treats and even the straws in the Champagne flutes all matched the fun patterns and palette of the collection. Outside the store was industry insiders Sabrina Fenster-Levy and Meaghan Faye hanging in a vintage Polka dot Porsche supplied by Miles End Motors – just to add a final flair of fun.

I suspect this collection will do incredibly well. Its playful, yet practical design is likely to appeal to many women. To check the collection out for yourself, head over to Fine Finds Yaletown or shop online at  CovetingChiChi.com.
