Corrie Neilsen.

Tellusfashion enjoy seeking out new designers, especially ones which are set to make the big time in the very near future.

Corrie Neilsen is just the type of designer we love discovering. Her style is romantic, drawing influences upon 18th century illustrators James Gillray and George Cruikshank. The A/W 11 collection is full of masculine tailoring in dark blacks and greys.

Corrie Neilsen graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2004 with a BA First Class Honours Degree in Fashion Design Womenswear. She has since gone on to do various freelance projects before designing her own label.

The highlight of her career was when she won Fashion Fringe in 2010. Fashion Fringe is a nationwide search to discover new talent in cutting edge design across the UK.

We predict there are plenty more highlights to come for this American designer.

SuShilla Jewellery.

Tellusfashion have just discovered a great new jewellery designer. SuShilla launched her collection early last year. The designs focus on the quality, colour, cut and texture of semi-precious stones. One of the major collections is Tallulah collection which incorporates unusual yet beautiful rough stones such as Smithsonite and Vessonite into the jewellery designs.

Rough stones are not the only gems which feature in the SuShilla collections, the only qualities they need to possess is to be interesting and of beautiful colour and depth. The delicate Julep and Oriel collections are more intricately designed and use these cut forms of stone.

Sushilla Done grew up travelling the world with her family. As a result a lot of cultures such as India, Morocco and Istanbul have inspired her designs.

She told The Oxford Times: “I was brought up in London until the age of 11 when my father began working with the United Nations. We moved to Khartoum in the Sudan and lived there for two years, then went on to Nairobi, followed by Zambia and Malawi. I don’t think you can spend that much time travelling as a teenager without it having a huge influence on you.”

SuShilla jewellery will be exhibited at the International Jewellery London 2011 show and the Pulse London show.
