As a creative, Lauren yearns to constantly flex her creative muscle, which has led her to explore the areas of fashion photography and styling. In 2010, she created the fashion blog titled 'Your Only Black Swan' which has allowed her to collaborate with brands and engage with the fashion and PR community here in Australia and abroad. In early 2014, Lauren transitioned into the role of fashion photographer, directing self-initiated shoots, testing for modelling agencies and collaborating with other creatives in the fashion industry. Lauren also practices prop and interior styling, generating original visual content for social media.
Recently, her latest quest is founding sister-duo label Crossing Threads, celebrating the art of weaving and decorative textiles for both private and commercial spaces. This passion project, now business is a platform for Lauren to practice her cumulative experience in creative direction, brand experience and partnership, social media strategy and content creation. Crossing Threads has been featured in The Woolmark Company Wool Week, The Design Files, SBS Australia, Inside Out Magazine, Home Beautiful Magazine, as well as partnered with The Designory for The Bay Properties in Byron Bay.
