Everybody’s starry eyed…

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.

Here at Tellusfashion our designers are always one step ahead of the fashion pack and the colour blocking craze is most definitely on their radar…

Take for instance Edinburgh fashion brand;  Teaataunties. Founded by Nicola McIntyre, her mantra is “out with the old, in with the new” aiming to source new and cutting edge fashion from vintage and pre- loved material. With a focus on unique pieces,  her Pant suit is fantastically on trend with colour block detail and wide leg trousers, a nod to the 70s fashion influence this season.

Across the pond, designer brand Annie and Jade have a fantastic collection of bold and bright colour-block frocks. Focusing on clean designs and strong silhouettes, the brains behind the brand Annie Le “designs clothes that compliment the female form”. Even better you can look amazing whilst knowing the garments are ethically sound, made of natural, fairtrade, organic and recycled materials.
