Laurel Berman: Black Halo

At Fashion Houston on Monday night, I had the wonderful opportunity to see the runway show for Laurel Berman’s Black Halo brand. I’ve long admired Black Halo as the ultimate career girl’s wardrobe essentials. I spent a little time speaking with Laurel Berman about her amazing company, celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.  I felt like I was talking with a friend, a super cool friend with impeccable style, grace and passion for what she does. We shared our love of yoga, discussed work/life balance, and of course, fashion.

Chatting with Laurel Berman

I had to ask her what it was about the signature, timeless Jackie O dress (the woman’s power suit since 2008) that has been spotted on celebrities and regular girls all over and it looks amazing on everyone! Laurel told me the secret to this is that all of their dresses are made to be super flattering and make women look and feel their very best. She doesn’t take an artistic angle to it, it’s plain and simple: you have to feel beautiful in what you wear and if you don’t feel good in a Black Halo dress, that they’re not doing their job.

She described elements of the new collection of being on trend because that’s who the Black Halo girl is: a working girl, on trend but never trendy, timeless and sophisticated – something to aspire to, as far as I’m concerned.

All of Black Halo’s collections are made in Los Angeles, where the quality control is stringent and there are extremely high standards for fit and tailoring. This includes the new Black Halo Eve collection, an evening line that launched at Neiman Marcus this year and was shown at Fashion Houston on Monday night. In fitting with the Black Halo style, it is clean, sophisticated, architectural, fitted and flattering without a lot of hoopla.

Thanks so much to Laurel Berman for spending some time with me. I look forward to being a long-time Black Halo girl (and continuing yoga for the balance we all crave).
