Get to know Tallulahs Threads ……
Tallulahs Threads – Interview
First off let us introduce this cool British label to you! Tallulah’s Threads, is an Independent brand which specialises in Alternative Clothing and Accessories for today’s Fashion loving gals. They sell hand made or hand finished garments, designed and made in their UK studio and they aim to be your go to choice for glittery, fun and kitsch clothing with a special touch that will get you noticed!
Founded by Fashion Designer Danni in 2014, the brand continues to grow from strength to strength producing versatile and wearable clothing. The small team have recently launched their 8th collection for winter 16 in which they take classic cuts and mix them with fun kawaii inspired motifs and patterns. We grabbed 5 minutes with designer and founded Danielle & wanted to share with you – so you can get to know the brand better too.
When did you get into fashion?
“I studied Fashion at Uni and graduated in 2011 but have always loved fashion and clothing. A few years ago my Mum dug out some old drawings of mine when I was a kid and it was a full catalogue of clothing with sizing and colour options, so it’s clearly always been an interest of mine. I worked for a few other designers as a pattern cutter after graduating and started Tallulah’s Threads as a Vintage brand in my spare time. After about a year I started designing a few pieces myself and before long I found that the brand was growing too quick for me to focus any time on anything else, so a year and a half ago I left my job and here we are.”
Could you describe the role that you play in the company?
“Currently I get stuck in with everything. We’re still a very small team so we all pitch in where needed. I design the collections each season and my daily routine includes sewing orders and just general management of the business”
Where does most of your inspiration come from?
“I would say it comes from a mix of my personal style and trends I see emerging on the street. I love anything glittery so I often try to incorporate that into my designs as much as possible”
Top memorable moments together or turning points in your line?
“This year has been great as we went to our first trade show at LondonEdge in February and returned in September. It’s so nice to see buyers and bloggers looking through our collection and generally loving it”
What are your favourite pieces from each collection?
“I really love the glitter motif dresses each season as I think they are stand out pieces. They can easily be dressed up or down, in cute motifs that will catch people’s eye. This season my absolute fave is our Silver Bomber jacket!”
Describe your personal style?
“My style is very similar to the brand, I feel that if it’s something I would love to wear then other people will too. You will always see me in a dress!”
Where do you see your brand in the future?
“I would be really happy if Tallulah’s Threads was a brand that gals could rely on to find something to wear that made them feel confident. My aim is to grow internationally as well as in the UK and build a good network of loyal customers who shop with us regularly”
Tallulahs Threads Unicorn Smock Dress seen on The Style Rawr
Our Tallulahs Threads Unicorn Dress gets The Style Rawr Treatment
Jade from The Style Rawr wears our Tallulahs Threads smock dress in her latest blog post.
In Tara’s own words :
“3 words. Unicorn glitter dress. YAS! Long term Rawrgirl faves, Spoiled Brat, are back this season with a whole new range of awesome brands all under one virtual roof. We’ve been wearing Spoiled Brat since this blog began (some 6 years ago) and they never fail to disappoint.
Tallulah’s Threads is one of their latest brands, they produce hand made/finished clothing and accessories for unique girls. The AW16 collection is cuteless overload. From unicorns prints to rainbows and robot prints to planets… I want it ALL. Ever since I got my paws on this adorable Unicorn Glitter Smock Dress, I’ve been prancing around feeling like a unicorn. MAJESTIC.
It’s a little sheer so I wear it with an underslip but this oversized smock is perfect to me. I love wearing pieces which have a little extra room – there’s nothing worse than stuffing your face with Nando’s and then feeling like you’re about to burst out of your clothing. I’m wearing the size small which fits just how I like it. It’s also available with pink glitter unicorns but I personally prefer this black/silver combo.
My only minor gripe is that the unicorns are just on the front of the dress – not that it really matters to me because I can’t see the back, but I was a bit surprised when I opened the packaging – and let’s be honest, the more unicorns the better! I genuinely want the Tallulah’s Threads space dress so bad it hurts a little. The robot dress is a close second. Dear Santa…
If you haven’t been on Spoiled Brat’s new and improved website, you should definitely check it out. They have a whole selection of casual pieces but some pretty special occasionwear too. To me this dress is fun yet quite smart, which is why I paired it with ankle boots and wore it to grab dinner.
Which Tallulah’s Threads item is your fave? I can’t get over how much I love it all!
T – Always be yourself unless you can be a unicorn. Then always be a unicorn“
We really love this look, how Tara has styled it with some simple ankle boots and her trademark hat. The beauty of this dress is it can be dressed up or dressed down. We like it with some chunky tights and boots, and a ragged priest denim jacket for this winter.

The Style Rawr features Iron Fist My Little Pony
Iron Fist My Little Pony, gets the Style Rawr treatment
Can we take a moment to appreciate this : Iron Fist, My Little Pony!!! Argh!!!! And how cute does Jade from The Style Rawr look in this pretty little blouse?!
Jade has been busy getting married, but found the time to style up our Iron Fist blouse in her latest blog post. She has gone for the casual look with this – wearing some skinny jeans and her trust DMs. You could also dress this up tucked into a high waisted skirt perhaps and some heels?
Jade has said about this blouse :
“I’ve always liked a bit of Iron Fist, it’s a fun brand and some of the designs they come out with are just inspired, with this blouse definitely planting it’s hooves in that category! The colours are just amazing, so bright and cheery, and the pattern is of course, delightful. If you’re a die hard Brony like me (I have a collection of Rainbow Dash dolls and watch Friendship Is Magic whenever I can), you have to have this. Everypony (yes I wore it to work!) who sees it can’t help but get excited by the colours and the memories it brings on! The material is a slinky chiffon, but not too see through as you can see here because I only have a nude bra on underneath and it’s invisible. You can’t fault Iron Fist quality, it continues to be strong and worth every penny. I kept it simple here and paired it with double denim and pastel DM’s, but it would look pretty darn cute tucked into a little A-Line skirt and some ankle boots if you prefer a girlier look. If you’re looking for sizing info, I’m a UK12 and this is a size L. I probably could’ve swung the M but I’m a terror for sizing up and this is comfortable for me. If this is your sort of thing you should definitely check out the new look Spoiled Brat. The revamped webby is easy to navigate and the updated brand lines are insanely covetable, taking me back to the days of having a huge want list in my faves bar! ”
We totally agree, IronFist are killing it with their collections and collaborations with 80s iconic brands like My Little Pony and Care Bears! With the new season collection due to drop VERY soon – we advise to brace yourself for more nostagic prints and quirky designs.
Thanks to Jade for a wonderful post xxx

Stephi LaReine wears our Wildfox Tee
Wildfox Grand Canyon Tee : Hot Blogger Pick
Rainbow haired fashion blogger, Stephi LaReine wears our Wildfox Tee in her latest blog post.
In her own words, Stephi says
“So todays outfit was mainly influenced by a lot of music I’m listening to, Lana Del Rey is back in my playlist and therefore in my wardrobe all over again. So let’s think pink heart shaped sunglasses, urban trainers, and ripped denim. My tasseled t-shirt is Wildfox from Spoiled Brat, they always seem to include all my favourite pieces that personify summer. It’s got me a few clicks away from booking my own road trip to the states, that’s how influenced I feel by their collection. “
We personally love this look Stephi is right about Wildfox – I swear the designers are psychic and know exactly how I feel, as their designs totally personify our life!
Stephi has teamed this fun fringed t-shirt, which features a grand canyon graphic on the front, with some cool cut off skinny jeans and colourful nike trainers. The outfit is made by Stephi’s rainbow hair (which we LOVE!) and some cool sunglasses. With September shaping up to be the summer we never had , this look is totally HOT right now. Cool and casual.

Planet Vandy has landed at Spoiled Brat HQ!
We have been avid followers of designer Alice Vandy and her quirky “Planet Vandy” label since its launch a couple of years ago. We were immediately attracted to her wacky designs and quirky stand out prints.
Alice who graduated from Art School in 2008, got her first big break after working on designs for the Clothes Show in Birmingham. She said:
“I always knew what I wanted to do but I didn’t expect to do it so quickly. It kind of happened by accident. When I graduated I just fell into doing my own brand – it was all sooner than I had planned.
I signed up to an online portfolio site and managed to get contact details for stylist Alexis Knox.
She got back to me and asked if I would be interested in providing some clothes for the opening scene of the Clothes Show in Birmingham.”
This was literally her break came when Alexis, who has worked with Little Mix, asked Alice to provide some clothes for the opening scene of the Clothes Show in Birmingham and after being spotted at the show by several celebrities Alice was inundated with commissions – including a £300 playsuit made from a unique Amazonian print.
She also designed items to be used on X Factor and Britain’s Next Top Model and got to meet Jessie J in London.
“I went to a fitting for her” she said. “I worked solidly on her outfit for about five days – there were so many different pattern pieces. ‘I flew up to London from Cornwall in the end. She’s so nice though – so down to earth”
Despite her success however, Alice doesn’t get starstruck. she says:
“When people like Jessie J wear my clothes, all my friends go crazy, but it just becomes part of the job“
And now Alice is collaborating with My Little Pony, which celebrated their 30th birthday, and Hello Kitty. Her designs include a fabulous range of dresses, leggings and catsuits – garments which you can take from day to night with ease. Its colourful, bright and totally unique and we LOVE it. The brand fuses fairy-tale fantasy with youthful streetwear, Planet Vandy is boosted by an ever-growing legion of fans and we are honoured and very excited to introduce it to you guys!
