Beautiful Hand of Fatima necklace.
I love how she mixed two different material pieces from the Antipodium A/W11 collection. A cotton tide print top and a light chiffon tide print maxi skirt.
Its just a little under 2 months until the collection will hit stores (November 17th) but the first images have finally been released thanks to Russian Vogue! All that can really be said now is wow! What an amazing collection. I think this collection might just top Lanvin’s! TellusFashion are already making a list of things we need to have from the collection… EXCITED!
Have a peak at the editorial from Russian Vogue below
If you’re reading this blog then you’re obviously a super-stylish fashionista, and unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past 2 weeks it can’t have escaped your knowledge that we are entering the third of the four most fashionable weeks in the fashion world calendar. New York and London have been and gone and now Gucci opened Milan today with a deliciously dark show that paid tribute to its twenties origins. With sequins, flapper style dresses, drop waists, fringing and art deco motifs, it’s just a matter of time before this new trend goes viral in celeb land! (In fact a reliable source told me that French Connection showcased a fabulous flapper dress at Bristol Fashion Week only last night!)
Fancy yourself as a bit of a trendsetter? Then get ahead of the fashion game and head on over to Tellusfashion for a unique way to wear the hottest trends, safe in the knowledge that you won’t meet 3 other people on the same night wearing the carbon copy of your outfit! For some fabulous fringing check out this White Fringe Dress or Camel Coloured Halter Neck Maxi Dress. For a knockout mini then try this vintage style Faded Rose Dress. All designed by Ekaterina Kukhareva who puts emphasis on using fringing and beading in her designs-perfect for the 1920s look!
What do you think of this forthcoming trend? Will you be vamping it up in the vintage look? Tellus…
Temperley’s ‘Grace’ SS12 collection battles a new take on classical
decadent romance. Typical crystal encrusted gowns, beautiful silhouettes,
delicate lace and rich satin sit alongside bold flashes of colour, shots of
animal print, graphic floral’s and quirky fringing bringing a new, fresh focus
to luxury as unique statements collide with gorgeous, feminine shapes for a
timeless but innovative collection.
The collection toys with transparencies, creating exquisite shapes
with body-hugging dresses and tailored shirts complete with French lace and
golden crystal drops. The silhouettes appear elongated, sensual and unique
drawing upon the divide between the typical sights of gentle pearls that become
entwined with satin 70’s headbands and graphic prints.
The colours saw the usual representatives of a sensual, lady like
collection with creams, sweet pastels and gentle nudes that were sliced through
with dramatic navy and harsh whites as Temperely creates a contemporary but yet
traditional take on romance.
Draping’s of silk satin and shimmering sequins teamed with
brilliant, glossy red lips added the perfect edge to highlight Temperley’s
renowned craftsmanship. Fluid, clean lines and classic detail contrasted
against oversized prints, flowing kimono capes and new colours finish this
ultra glamorous, elegant collection that casts a thrilling new light on tradition.

London Fashion Week is well and truly in full swing this week with some amazing collections from the likes of Sass & Bide, Mary Katrantzou and Aquascutum but to name a few. However, we all know that TellusFashion and the rest of the fashion world were eagerly awaiting the arrival of the next Burberry Prorsum collection from Christopher Bailey. Its fair to say that we were not disappointed!
For SS12, Bailey took the brand in a new direction this season, bringing us more detailed garments full of print, weaving, braiding, beading and plenty of soft spring colours. Not forgetting the signature trench which appeared on the catwalk in a stunning aqua blue for the coming season.
Have a look at the collection below

Seems all the A-list our holding their own private peep shows this week with cut out dresses being the pick of the crop for coveting their fabulous figures. Beyonce wasn’t going to let a little thing like pregnancy get in the way of her style credentials as she appeared at the opening of the Tony Burch Madison Avenue Flagship store. Pairing both leather and cut-out detail in her edgy dress, she was at risk of looking that little bit too risqué but she kept it classy with the long length of the frock. Kim Kardashian appeared at New York Fashion week watching her half sister Kendall’s catwalk debut in her striking silver number and Rochelle Wiseman flew the flag for the Brit girls showing off her impressive cleavage in her Celeb Boutique dress.
Want to get your own cut-out couture? Then head on over to Tellusfashion and check out this Baby Cut-Out dress. Not for the faint hearted, you’ll need to start on those sit ups now! Just remember that the more daring the dress the less outrageous your hair and make-up, keep it simple and chic!
So what do you think of the cut-out trend? Will you dare to bare? Tellus…
It’s TellusFashion’s goal to promote the newest talent in fashion, whether that may be in fashion design or any other form of artist within the industry (photographers, make-up artists, hair stylists – you name it) so I take great pleasure in introducing to you an extremely talented designer, a graduate of Central St. Martins College in London – one of the most well established fashion schools in the country, and the only school to ever showcase its students creativity and hard-work on the runways at London Fashion Week. Tellusfashion readers, feast your eyes on Mungo Gurney.
Mungo Gurney is renowned for his outlandish prints which are said to be inspired by many different places around the globe. He has unleashed his very first ready-to-wear swimwear collection to the world which presents itself as a bohemian homage to Northern California and Southern Europe.
In a statement from the designer, his spring summer 2012 collection ” sees bold, modular prints created in a vibrant alchemy of rich navy-blues, fresh mint-greens, soft rose and beige, along with graphic primaries. Forms take shape in graphic dots, art-nouveau motifs and block prints drawn from Matisse’s abstract involvement with architectural decoration.”
Looking at Gurney’s collection, it is obvious to state that the shapes of his pieces remain simplistic yet don’t deny the garment of feminine silhouettes (The clever use of print on the dress and the use of darker colours give the illusion of parts such as the waist, being synched in) and could be said as being reminiscent of the 1920s French Riviera look. We absolutely adore what Mungo Gurney has created here and we will most definitely be watching to see what’s next in his creative pipeline. His work is effortlessly cool and can be translated easily from the catwalk to your wardrobe.

Tellus what you think of his work!
I’ll be the first to admit that I was more than a bit excited to see not one, not two, but three of my biggest girl crushes; Jessica Alba, Selena Gomez and Eva Longoria on the cover of October’s issue of Latina magazine. Celebrating the fifteenth anniversary of the publication, 15 lovely Latin ladies posed alongside each other in designer red dresses, bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase, ‘lady in red.’ Other beauties snapped on the cover included Shakira, Gloria Estefan and Zoe Saldana.

A great red dress has the ability to transform even the most shrinking violet into a sex-siren, so why not rev it up in red and sizzle into Autumn by heading over to Tellusfashion? This Red cocktail dress by Esse-Elle’s stand out colour will allow you to get noticed but the chic and elegant cut and demure length stops it from being tacky. Likewise this dark red little lace dress by Guillermo Leon oozes sophistication but with a fiery and sexy twist. If however, you’re not feeling brave enough to embrace all over red, then a red clutch or red shoes will add a pop of colour to your outfit.
So what do you think of the raunchy red trend? I love the cover, my only issue being where are Eva Mendes and Penelope Cruz…?

Yes, it’s true that Cruella might just inspire your style this season thanks to her obsession over dalmation print, however TellusFashion aren’t as cruel to try and kill 101 puppies to stay on trend. Thanks to Topshop Unique at last fashion week, we have pretty much fallen in love with the cutsie dalmation print and here are some ways you can wear it this season without going over your highstreet budget…

If you prefer to keep it subtle with animal prints then channel the look onto your fingernails using a matte white colour as your base (Alpine Snow by OPI) and careful dot on your spots using a plain black nail varnish (Black Onyx by OPI) and a fine nail art brush (nail art fine detail brush at essentialnails.com)
The A-listers channeled their inner dark angel’s at this years VMA’s, with deliciously dark tones ruling the red carpet. Ok, so it may not be the most fashion-forward trend of the moment, but nobody can deny the timeless elegance (and trusty faithfulness!) of the LBD. A fabulous black dress is a great investment as it’s not a faddy trend that will fall off the fashion radar quicker than the time it takes you to have the overwhelming urge to punch Jedward in the face when they appear on your TV screens. And these celebs look anything but dull, each choosing to add a unique touch to their LBD’s.

Britney is in great shape at the moment and this Moschino sequinned dress is the perfect way to showcase her fab new figure. If only the dress was a touch longer and the less said about those Gina patent peep-toes boots the better. Not only are they hideous but they also make her calves look a lot more shapely than they really are.
Rocking a broken foot like only Jessie J can, one of Brit School’s finest exports pairs her fancy crutches and intricately detailed cast with a bejewelled black leotard.

For a woman with such lovely taste in fashion, it beggars believe as to why Selena Gomez’s taste in men is so…off the mark. Anyway, Selena looks gothically gorgeous in this Julien Macdonald number. Teamed with gold pumps and understated hair-the perfect combination for the dramatic dress.
Want your own affordable unique LBD? Then head on over to Tellusfashion. This classic Little Black Dress is a timeless design made from Jacquard fabric from designer Sovacolletion. If you want to stand out from the crowd then make like Jessie J and get your hands on this Daly Opaque from Eyola. Customise and bejewel it up and you’ll have a look ready to rival the A-list!
It’s time to channel your inner wild child this Fall, as animal print is making a big statement this coming season, and it’s a lot more wearable than you may first think. Whether you choose to look lovely in leopard, sexy in snake or zesty in zebra there’s a print for everyone. As always the celebs are already at it, so which print will you be working this Autumn? Tellus…
Never one to look anything short of fabulous, Kate Moss looks incredible in this Lanvin Snake Print dress. Pairing the dress with a Chanel handbag, Christian Louboutins and a white blazer she pulls of effortless glamour to a tee.

Good old K-Dash is never one to miss a trend and she works it very well in this floaty zebra print dress. With sleek hair and her chic Birkin bag she brings sophistication to the animal print trend, which is more than can be said for her next look…
Good grief, from fab to drab in the shake of a (leopards? zebras? cheetahs?) tail, how the mighty have fallen. Ms Kardashian shows us how NOT to wear the animal print trend, showing that sometimes even the best get it so very wrong. The all over print of this Roberto Cavalli is hard to pull off especially if you’re blessed with the Kardashian curves and let’s not even discuss the tasselled bag thing…
Want to check out some fantastic up and coming designers take on the animal print trend? This Printed Tunic & Silk Skirt contains flashes of leopard print for her subtle but sexy take on the trend. Designed by Nicci, her designs are a unique alternative to high street clothes who takes inspiration from all different kinds of sources.
So go on, take a walk on the wild side…
Riccardo Tisci has brought so much to the Givenchy label since he was made creative director in 2005. I would give him the same credibility for transforming the Givenchy label into a modernised fashion brand as I would to Christopher Bailey and his work at Burberry. I think the thing that draws me to the Givenchy couture line now is that Tisci has brought an edge too the fashion house and has infused the brand with more imagination than its ever had before.
It comes as no surprise that his AW11 haute couture line is more than just fashion. It represents true imagination, creativity and craftmanship from the designer. Tisci used a variation of different embellishments and fabrics to create his stunning couture line including, tigers-eyes pearls with crystals which were used to replicate ostrich skin and one dress was constructed with perfectly symmetrical hand cut tulle pieces of fabric to create the illusion of fish scales. Amazing.
Take a look at the collection below…
Star motif clothing: No I’m not reminiscing about childhood fashion when the highlight of being dragged around the shops with mum was a trip into Tammy Girl, excitedly clutching a bag with a cute kitty/heart/star motif t-shirt, but the current Dolce and Gabbana print that the celebs just can’t get enough of…
The runway was saturated in stars back in February when Dolce and Gabbana showcased their Fall 2011 Ready-to-Wear Collection.
Literally everybody has been seen in this playful print from Jessica Alba to Lily Allen to Lucy Liu showing just how versatile and wearable the trend is, but who wears it best? Tellus…
Jessica Alba looks glowingly gorgeous in her head to toe Dolce and Gabbana halterneck gown. Choosing a smaller star print in monochrome she shows just how much of a yummy mummy she is-she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Haven just 13 days later!
How effortlessly gorgeous does Ashley Tisdale look in this oversized D&G jumper and cut-off shorts? She works casual airport chic to a tee, teaming the knit with tan flat sandals, oversized sunglasses and Louis Vuitton luggage.
Fergie adds a splash of colour to the starry look at the Teen’s Choice Awards in her yellow and black long-sleeved mini, it’s just a shame she chose the same colour combination for her barnet…
Be a star in your own right and hit the High Street to find affordable versions of this popular trend. If you’re more shrinking violet than shining starlet then you can incorporate the look into your accessories. Like the idea but want to add your own unique twist to it? Check out this Starfish Dress, but take my word it’s not for the faint hearted-you need some serious fashion mojo to carry off this look…
Like most girls my age, I am very limited to what I can buy fashion wise. I am a recent graduate who has yet to find my dream career in the fashion industry so I’m still living on a student budget, earning close to part-time wages. Therefore, I need to find ways to create a catwalk look at a lower cost (Luckily for me, I love the British High-Street so I still get a lot of satisfaction from buying from there).
The trend I love most this season is the ‘Fetish’ or what some call the ‘Domintarix’ trend. Personally I think it’s the fact that black is the key colour for the trend (a major trend in my wardrobe). However, this trend is not for the faint hearted and catwalk collections from the likes of Mugler presented pieces that fully represented the trend in all its glory.
I however, don’t have near enough fashion confidence to pull that off so I scoured the high-street to put together a toned down version of the trend… check out my high-street finds below and Tellus what trends you will be channeling this A/W!
