Show me some love...

I met the creator and owner of Tallulah Love at a charity event last month and literally fell in love with the beautiful lingerie that she had designed. As the ex design director at Playboy Intimates UK, Michelle had over 12 years experience in the Lingerie industry before she set up Tallulah love and when speaking to her (genually one of the sweetest people I have ever met) has a real passion for beautiful feminine pieces. Michelle says in her own words: "Having worked in the industry for 12 years gaining my training working for Marks and Spencer's supplier Claremont I then went on to design for a UK fashion house who supplies to Topshop, Miss Selfridge and many others. I realised I wanted to work in the Branded sector and was given the position of White Label Lingerie designer for Playboy Intimates. I worked with the team to create a 1950's style vintage line for Playboy and quickly progressed to Design Manager. I believe that this wealth of experience has given me a fabulous insight into what women and buyers want from lingerie. My burning desire to create my own line came around 5 years ago. i finally took a leap of faith and 2 years ago I left Playboy to start working towards this goal to own and create my own lingerie brand. It's taken months of sourcing, designing, planning and soul searching to get to this point and I am so proud to say that my vision has become a reality. "Tallulah Love is here". The range is very contemporary yet has a nod to vintage. The styling, marketing and branding all echo luxury glamour and the range is said to have a very “high end fashion” appeal. Tallulah Love Luxury Lingerie’s first photo shoot was held in a wonderfully enchanting London town house which hasn’t been altered since 1847 and so was the perfect backdrop for the vintage inspired range.
Selling beautifully sculpted silk bra and kicker sets to vintage feel corsets with a modern twist. This new to the market brand has a really sense of luxury to it and offers something a little bit more special than your usual Victoria Secret set. I personally love the vintage, girlie, French-renaissance feel to parts of the collection,. With the bras roughly £90 and knickers £45 they would make a lovely gift (might need to keep this in mind for Valentines day next year). My favourite pieces come from the Blue Birds range and the Vintage Blush collection, just beautiful.
