Tangerine Promotions: Shot glasses, coffee mugs, and Lauren Conrad's collection?

March 24th, 2008 · No Comments

Last week I wrote this splendiforous post about L.A. Fashion week. As a nice little postscript, I thought I’d  share with you, my readers, a juicy bit of info that I came across today in this article on NYmag.com. It’s about Lauren Conrad’s clothing line, oh, and why its destined to fail (like there was ever any doubt). Among the innocuous indicators was this gem: Her clothing is produced by Tangerine Promotions, a company that specializes in promo products, i.e., those hideous plastic shot glasses given away during happy hour at the neighborhood watering hole — and by neighborhood watering hole I mean generic meathead bars that cater to the mainstream, 20-something set.

Apparently MTV does a lot of business with Tangerine Promotions and when asked if it was willing to make little Lauren’s riches to riches dreams come true, it agreed, granting Conrad full creative control over the merchandise. Too bad. Lauren Conrad for Tangerine Promotions sounds kinda catchy.
