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”
