Laurel Berman is a woman that gets women. The designer of Black Halo understands what we all really want and that’s to look good and to feel beautiful when we step out, which is why their motto is…”Two inches taller and five pounds thinner”! You can say that again Laurel.

Last month we got the opportunity to spend a little time with her when she was in town for an event at Tootsies that featured the Black Halo Fall 2014 collection.

Some of the new looks for Black Halo this Fall are their two-piece dresses, their jumpsuits continue to be huge, and they are doing lots of Dolman Sleeves this season. Why the Dolman sleeve we asked Berman? “Our customers love a sleeve, and the easy Dolman sleeve is great for the Fall and it looks great with a pencil silhouette.”

Now that we are on a roll you know we had to get all up in her business! Here are a few more questions for Laurel…

What do you do for fun and to unwind?
I love yoga and rollerblading. I know rollerblading is super out of fashion, but I do it for fun and because I really enjoy it. My new thing is rollerblading around the world.

Why do you give your dresses names?
The reason I name my clothes is because they all have their own personality! The hopes are they all become iconic woman, like our Jackie O’ dress.

Who’s your style muse?
We have so many of them, but honestly I am my own style muse. The reason being is because I’m a chameleon. One day I may be feeling very Tomboy and then one day I may feel Hippie girl or Boho chic! This way I get to play and not get bored.

All that’s left to say is thanks Mrs. Berman for allowing us to play as well and to be every woman.

Until soon…Toodles!
