Rolling out interviewed Lashawn Burnett of Lashawn B Designs about her new maxi dress collection, created for the confident, savvy and bold woman.
What is unique about your new fashion collection?
Lashawn B Designs’ maxi dresses are bold and eye-catching with a sexy halter and attached shawl. The shawl is detachable and versatile [enough] to wear several different ways. The savvy, sassy, long, flowing jersey viscose fabric flatters almost all body types. The dress is great for any occasion: weddings, events, date night, girls night out and yachting. The dress is great with flats, wedges or heels.
When did your new collection launch?
July 17, 2018.
What inspired your career in fashion?
What originally began as a love for fashion since the age of 10 years old blossomed into a full-fledged business. My career in the fashion industry began with the commencement of DejaVoo Boutique in 2006. With over 11 years cultivating my skills, Lashawn B Designs was born.
How long have you been in the fashion industry?
What fashion icon do you admire and why?
Diane von Furstenberg is simply amazing and talented. She discovered the iconic wrap dress 40 years ago. The success behind the wrap dress is extraordinary. Diana Ross is a true icon fashion diva. Her beauty and stage costumes she wore with sequins and sparkling embellishments were overflowing with class. She is the true definition of a fashion icon.
What do you like most about your new summer maxi dress?
I absolutely love that it has a shawl and how flattering it is on a woman’s body when she walks. The jersey viscose fabric feels amazing on, not to mention the bold vibrant colors.
