The Lauren children say they love to wear designs from their father's label because, to them, they're more than clothes. "What you see in this world is translated into clothing, and so it's personal to us, as it is to my dad," David says. "If he takes a beautiful pillow, and it's inspired by a great Navajo blanket, I know the story, and it makes it that much more personal to us. And I know the patina on the Jeep that he rode in and how he translates that into something he's making, into a sweater."

Ralph is currently designing a very personal piece for Dylan—her wedding dress. "It's very exciting," Dylan says. "Obviously my dad is making my dress for it, which is the most amazing thing because it's really stunning."

Designing Dylan's wedding gown is especially emotional for Ralph. "I had to do something that was better than ever before," he says. "When you do something for your family or your daughter, I mean it's the only daughter I have—beautiful girl. I want to just give her something that she'd really treasure and give her something that would be really amazing. I want her to feel fantastic."

Dylan says she loves the dress so much, she may not take it off after the wedding. "I told my fiancé, 'I may sleep in it. I might wear it the next day,'" she says. "It's really beautiful. I know that every bit of his energy and heart went into making sure that I liked it."
