There is no denying that make-up is every bit as important as the clothes during Fashion Week and it most certainly completes the final look – where would we be without it girls?!
Fashion Week Feb/March 2011 has confirmed that for Autumn/Winter 2011, its all about having a bold lip and keeping the rest of your make-up to a bare minimum. My favourite lip colour from fashion week has been the striking purple we (almost) saw at the YSL show in Paris. Slightly gutted they pulled it last minute, but TellusFashion still reckon its a ‘dead cert’ for next seasons palette!
Its certainly no secret, that I am all for a plum lip so when I saw this shade from YSL I quickly fell in love…
What were your favourite Beauty looks from Fashion Week?
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.

London Fashion Week has brought us some famous labels over the years, and hasn’t let us down in 2011, where it has discovered some fresh new talent by the likes of Louise Gray. This week, Louise Gray is one of the NEWGEN winners for Autumn/ Winter 2011 for her catwalk show and her exhibition.
NEWGEN, which stands for British Fashion Council created New Generation, was created for London Fashion Week in 1993 to support emerging designer talent. For the past 18 years the scheme has some of the best British designers such as Julien McDonald, Matthew Williamson and Alexander McQueen, which only means one thing; Louise Gray is going to be huge!
Her Spring/ Summer 2011 collection is feminine and floaty complete with big prints and embellishment. Bright colours and textures are themed throughout all her designs, making them uniquely hers.
The Scottish designer first saw success after graduating with an MA at Central Saint Martins College in London when she was selected by Fashion East. She went on to exhibit three seasons there. She has also had collaborations with Cotton USA, Judy Blame, Nicholas Kirkwood, the Smiley Company and Crown Paint.
Here at Tellusfashion.com, we have already clocked on to her individual style and eagerly await her new designs. Watch out for forthcoming collections, where she plans on creating a jewellery brand amongst other pieces.

I absolutely love this time of year, maybe even more so than Christmas! This week we begin with New York Fashion Week which has already kicked off yesterday with a show from Willow… Counting down 3 and a bit hours until BCBG Maxazria – Very excited!
Check out the blog this afternoon for more news on NYFW!

… (for fashionistas anyway) Fashion Week!
Before I go any further, let me introduce myself. My name is Heather and I am also one of Tell Us Fashion’s new bloggers and I am really looking forward to blogging daily about the wonderous world of fashion and the joy it brings me. Feel free to comment on my blogs and give me your opinions too!
London Fashion Week… where to begin guys?! There were so many amazing shows and so much happening (including tumbling models on the catwalk with Burberry’s extremely high heels – oh the risk us girls put up with for fashion eh!!) Its already got me day dreaming about what I will be wearing next Spring/ Summer when I’ve barely got to grips with my winter wardrobe! Gotta love super fast fashion!
My favourite show of the week had to be Charles Anastase. Maybe not everyone’s first choice but I just can’t resist those cute peter pan collars, pastel tones and towering heels. The pieces were so simplistic in terms of shape and structure but I thought they had so much impact and gave off a strong spring vibe.
Being a bit of a girly girl at heart I just couldn’t resist the feminity of these pieces! I could just imagine myself sitting in a lovely park on a sunny summers day wearing this stunning dress.. hat… shoes! I love the quirkiness of it all!!
here are some more of his BEAUTIFUL collection. I just love it.
Metallics for SS ’11? Fantastic!
and last but certainly not my least favourite piece from the collection…
So what do we think of his collection? I think this would be channelled straight down onto the high street next season and I wouldn’t be surprised if retailers like Miss Selfridge are all over these pieces – seems so Miss Selfridge right?
