Marios Schwab is a new designer already adored by the celebrities. Kate Moss, Hilary Duff, Kylie Minogue, Thandie Newton and Clemence Poesy have all previously worn his designs.
Marios Schwab launched his label in 2005, two years after studying an MA in Womenswear Fashion at Central St Martins. He worked with menswear designer Kim Jones for a period of time immediately after completing his MA.
It is not surprising his unique designs are snapped up by celebs; the feminine dresses, which are inspired by natural formations, contour the female shape, giving an elegant appealing result.
The 31-year-old has seen previous successes winning Best New Designer at the British fashion Awards in 2006 and the Swiss Textile Award in 2007.
Tellusfashion love this designer, and we are sure you will too.

Meet Natascha Stolle, the half German, quarter Italian, quarter Japanese fashion designer from America. Anyone who is as fond of asos.com as we are at Tellusfashion, should note this key designer; Natascha Stolle has designed a popular capsule range which is available online. She is also designing a range for the b Store’s in house label.
Natascha studied English Literature before turning her talents to fashion design. In 1999 she moved to London to study an MA at Central Saint Martins College. She has previously worked for Peter Jensen for ten seasons and Fashion East for two. She also debuted at London Fashion Week with her SS/09 collection.
Her unique style combines an alluring mix of slouchy with Hawaiian influences in an array of textiles and materials. Her tailoring is a result of her own experiments; something which she is clearly naturally talented at.
Don’t miss her Asos collection. Natascha Stolle is certainly one of our favourite high street designers!

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.

If you are looking for up and coming fashion designers, then Tellusfashion is definitely the right place to start. High hopes have already been pinned on Dutch designer Michael Van Der Ham, and predictions that he will go far in the world of fashion have already been stated.
Michael Van Der Ham has a strong background in fashion designing. He graduated from Central Saint Martins college with an MA in fashion, and has interned for some impressive designers such as Alexander McQueen.
His A/W 11 collection hit the Newgen catwalk at London Fashion Week earlier this year. It is filled with feminine pieces; well fitting dresses made with shimmering velvet material, in deep autumnal colours.

Molly and Alice Goddard are the new kids on the block. They are sisters which have one major thing in common; they share a passion for fashion.
Both girls have had previous successes in the fashion business; Molly studying knitwear at Central Saint Martins, and Alice, a model who has almost given up the glitz and glam to follow in her sisters footsteps in the world of designing.
Alice describes their new label, which is named Lovetits, as “sheer tops with things covering the boobies”
Alice told i-D Online: “It’s hard working [with Molly] because you don’t stop yourself saying what you think in the way you would with a friend. Our creative process involves a lot of shouting. We’d like to work together in the future, but keep what we’re doing now separate. I’m thinking about studying footwear next year. Molly does knitwear at Saint Martins and is amazing, I’d love to make the shoes and accessories for her collection but I’m too indecisive to work alone.”
Tellusfashion predict huge things for this brand, which has already been featured in the likes of Grazia. Keep up the good work girls!

London Fashion Week ended last Wednesday, and once again it has not let us down. Newgen selected its best new designers and left us fashion enthusiasts here at Tellusfashion amazed with the stunning new talent that it is able to produce year in, year out. David Koma was one of London Fashion Week’s big names this year. His feminine designs contour the body giving him his signature style.
David graduated from Central St Martins College of Design in April 2009 with a distinction in MA fashion. His graduate collection won the Harrods Design Award, which subsequently resulted in his designed being lapped up by celebrities. Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Megan Fox, Alicia Keys, Cheryl Cole and Kylie are all fans of David Koma’s designs.
His spring/summer collection sees girly pinks and creams based on perfect, body hugging silhouette dresses. Whereas his autumn/winter collection is set to have a darker side to it, inspired by Tim Burton, dark forests and hallucinations. The one thing that remains loyal to both collections is the feminine elegance and figure loving bodices that encapsulate his designs.
