Today I’m thrilled to spotlight on Tallulah Love, who marry a taste for theatrics, opulent fabrics & technical expertise to create gorgeous luxury lingerie and nightwear.
Michelle Taylor set up her own atelier to give women what they really want, a glamorous secret below the neckline.
Tallulah Love uses only fabrics that feel lovely against the skin, chooses colours to flatter and adds subtle finishing touches, such as original hand-drawn embroidered designs, to give each piece its own unique identity.
Michelle is also passionate about the fit; a woman wearing Tallulah Love looks every bit as good with her clothes on.
I hand you over to Michelle to find out all about her amazing Business…
Who are you, and what do you do?
My name is Michelle Taylor from Tallulah Love.
We design and manufacture luxury lingerie including bridal lingerie.
Our most recent collection includes a stunning Bridal knicker and garter set that retails for £40.00.
When and why did you start your Company?
I founded the business in 2010 after working for a number of other companies in the industry designing for High Street names Marks and Spencer, Top shop and Miss Selfridge and then Playboy International.
I love designing but have always dreamt of creating my own collection.
Sometimes we want to express our feminine, playful side; at others, we want to be very much in charge; but however we feel, beautiful underwear is a reminder not to take life too seriously.
What inspires you?
I am inspired by Vintage Paris, architecture and anything old from beautiful old postcards through to vintage nightwear and clothing.
I love old maps/ vintage illustrations and botanical drawings.
Tallulah Love’s latest S/S collection is influenced by country gardens and architecture.
Do trends influence your work?
I do look at trends however they don’t heavily influence my work.
I see Tallulah Love as an ever evolving creative vision with various shapes and styles.
Colour is very important to us as is the use of detail.
I am proud that we have been able to be more creative with the brand and have introduced some new styles including bodies and different shaped knickers swell as introducing garment made of varying fabrics such as spot mesh/ allover chantilly laces and trims.
Our signature addition to the collection is the stunning TL embroidery which comes from the days when the ‘lady’ used to drop her handkerchief and leave it for the gentleman to pick up.
What is your greatest achievement?
Our greatest achievement was coming 2nd to Gossard in the UK Lingerie awards.
I am also incredibly proud that we have sold into over 14 countries from Japan to the USA and Dubai.
What do you see as the future of your Company?
I would very much like to explore the market in the US which we are doing by attending the Curve NYC trade show in August this year.
We currently sell to a beautiful store in Santa Barbara.
Thank you so much to Michelle for sharing her stunning luxury lingerie.
The feeling of empowerment and of embracing your femininity and the glamour of wearing such beautiful pieces is an experience that every Bride or women should have.
