From TV personality, to New York Times best-selling author, to fashion designer, to philanthropist with over 10 million social media followers, Lauren Conrad doesn’t stop surprising us. Of course we still remember Conrad from MTV’s reality shows, The Hills and Laguna Beach but nowadays she is all about her family and fans.
In 2009, she launched her first collection, LC Lauren Conrad, sold exclusively at Kohl's, followed by her second line, Paper Crown, and most recent line, LC Lauren Conrad Maternity. In addition to her multiple collections, she's also written seven books; L.A. Candy, Lauren Conrad Style, Lauren Conrad Beauty, and Lauren Conrad Celebrate, among others.

During a trip to Tanzania and Uganda, Conrad and her best friend Hannah Skyarla had the opportunity to meet and visit female artisans struggling to make ends meet. Growing up in privileged and loving homes, Lauren and Hannah genuinely wanted to do something to make a difference and help those less fortunate. This journey was a real eye-opener, sparking the launch of The Little Market, a non-profit charitable organization. It’s an online fair trade shop where artisans showcase their beautiful products, giving customers the opportunity to purchase unique pieces from around the globe. Each purchase from The Little Market generates income for the artisans so they can survive and support their families.
