REAL DESIGNERS rip on Lauren CONRAD and other celebutard DESIGNERS!

Nicky Hilton, PussyCat Dolls and Lauren Conrad are set to be the stars of LA Fashion Week causing anger among the real designers.
"Sure, every celebrity and his brother wants to be a fashion designer," said veteran designer Sue Wong to Canadian Press.
"It's not like anybody can pick it up and do it. It's a science. You need to know fit and construction," adds Wong who has been working in the industry since 1968 but won't be showing her Fall 2008 collection at LA Fashion Week this year.

Wong is joined by Kevan Hall and Ed Hardy who will also be absent from Culver City's Smashbox photo studios next week.
The Hills star Lauren Conrad disagrees with Wong's opinion on celebrities cashing in on their fame by trying their hand at designing.
"I think my involvement in reality television has played a bittersweet role in my career," Conrad said to The Associated Press. "If I wasn't on TV I wouldn't have my line, but because I'm on TV people don't take me seriously."(Well atleast Lauren is realistic)
"People in the entertainment industry try to capitalize on their 15 minutes in every way possible," she continued. "The difference is I want a line that lasts longer than 15 minutes. It's what I've always wanted to do and what I hope to continue with when I'm done with entertainment," she adds.
What do you think? Should celebrities be taken seriously as designers? Or are they just cashing in on their fame?
