I am as unique as my name. Lhoren, pronounced Loren is my birth-given name, and though I often hated it growing up, I have learned to love it’s uniqueness. For example, I never have trouble pinning down a user name of choice. I remember creating an Instagram account years ago, and like everyone, I wanted an interesting handle that was fun and identifiable to my personality. I am a strong and independent woman and I love fashion from couture to street wear. My all-time favorites are contemporary designers, especially those with a heavy Japanese streetwear vibe like Rick Owens, Maison Martin Margiela, Yohji Yamamoto, Junya Watanabe, and Comme des garcons. What is one thing these iconic names all have in common? A lot of black. Black quickly became my identifier early on, and my friends and family would make jokes and comments about how I was always in black, thus Lhoren Wears Black was born.
