Meet Lauren Rabin — our incredible Stylist from the Chicago area!
Lauren grew up in Highland Park — the suburb of Chicago — and currently resides there with her family. We interviewed Lauren to find out her “must-haves”, her “go-to’s”, and her fashion do’s and don’ts. Read below for our full interview with our fabulous Stylist, Lauren Rabin!
KOKOON: How you were introduced to KOKOON?
LAUREN: I used to represent another line and when that company pulled out of direct sales I emailed my customers to let them know. I had built up a huge client list and I heard back from one of them telling me to “check out KOKOON!” I was like “this is totally my style, I love this line.” I called the KOKOON headquarters soon after and talked to both of the owners that first day! I loved what I saw online but I wanted to see the clothes in person before I made a decision so I went to a local show. I took some time looking over the collection and decided to signed on, and that was over 5 years ago!
KOKOON: Favorite hobbies, activities …etc…
LAUREN: Tennis! I’m a big tennis player; I like to play multiple times a week. And we love our dog! Our Family dog is a therapy dog.
KOKOON: One KOKOON piece you can never live without?
LAUREN: The camis for sure. And the slips! The Farrah wrap dress has SAVED me multiple times. It is a classic style that you can wear anywhere.
KOKOON: If you had to describe your own personal style in 3 words…
LAUREN: Relaxed, Simple, and Fun
KOKOON: Best part about being a Stylist for KOKOON? What have you gained since starting with KOKOON (besides super cute clothes)?
LAUREN: Besides a new wardrobe? Well, the clothes are a huge value. This is my ninth season — I still wear the clothes I bought the 1st season! I really love spending my time with a bunch of lovely women. I am a social person so the social aspect is great. Many of my customers are intimidated by the shopping experience at stores, so I really like helping women choose clothes and help them feel really good in the designs.
KOKOON: Why KOKOON versus other direct sales?
LAUREN: You know, I love KOKOON — it fits my personal style. It is really easy to be a Stylist because it fits me. The price point is great and people love it! It is really easy to wear. I lot of women are intimated by boutique sizes too and KOKOON is just sized really well. My customers consist of a wide range of women – I have a huge demographic — 30’s – 70’s — and it flatters every women’s figure!
KOKOON: What is your go-to outfit?
LAUREN: For me, I am a jeans girl with a heel! Jeans and a cute top.
KOKOON: What is your first “fashion” memory?
LAUREN: My mom — I grew up in the 70’s and things were very bohemian, flowy. I remember trying on all her long hippy jewelry and dresses.
KOKOON: Worst fashion item ever bought? Best?
LAUREN: Worst — When I was in high school, I bought these Big Star big baggy jeans! Totally not flattering to my figure. They were the worst thing I’ve ever worn and I wore them a lot. That taught me at an early age that you need to dress for your own figure.
Best — My KOKOON Racer Back ruffle dress; it is the greatest dress! I’ve sold so many of them! I bought the blue, then the black, then the pearl because I loved them so much!
We had so much fun chatting with Lauren and learning all about her personal style and KOKOON journey!
