"We are very excited to have someone as talented as Lauren Conrad working with us to help make this a very memorable and exciting show."
Conrad -- a part-time student at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles -- made her designer debut at May's Mercedes-Benz L.A. Fashion Week, and it featured 30 different looks from her Fall 2008 line.
However the red carpet gown she's designing for the Emmy Awards is not part of her Lauren Conrad Collection, which is currently sold in 500 boutiques across the country.
"I am so excited that the Academy has asked me to design a dress for this year's Emmy Awards," said Conrad. "I will be doing a red carpet look that still reflects the simple classic design of the Lauren Conrad Collection but with a black tie twist."
The 60th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards are scheduled to air live on Sunday, September 21 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
