The TÉLIO Collection: Sensational Satin / by Emily Hallman Designs I have been excited about this post for weeks. It’s been so rewarding to see this collection come together, and to make it whole with this finale piece is very gratifying.

The TÉLIO Collection: Gorgeous Guipure / by Emily Hallman Designs Lace is one of my favorite fabrics. I don’t use it all that often because no matter what you do with it it’s quite dressy and formal, but it still catches my eye at the fabric store, every single time. I don’t have many opportunities…

The TÉLIO Collection: Emerald Encore / by Emily Hallman Designs The dress in today’s post wasn’t planned. Originally, the folks at TÉLIO and I were going to end this fall series today with two pretty incredible special occasion pieces. Dresses made with yards and yards of satin and lace and a whole lot of horsehair, but this…

Are designers punking us? It seems like as the days pass we become increasingly accustomed to quirky fashion trends. We readily accept them with open arms and flock to boutiques to purchase our own before they sell-out. Designers from the likes of Moschino, Anya Hindman, and Chanel (to name a few) embraced this humorous trend…

Since closing her retail front in Bloordale and moving her studio to her home, she has really emerged in the local boutiques in and around Toronto. When she visits Telio, it’s always a pleasure! We…

A colleague of ours just took off for a two week vacation in Mykonos and if I tell you we are jealous, it is a major understatement! So, to cure our desire to be sipping a cold drink on a white sandy beach in front of bright blue water, I created a Trendy Tuesday inspiration…

Spending time photographing all of TÉLIO’s fabrics gives me the opportunity to get acquainted with every single style that comes in. Lately I have been smitten for the pops of neon seen on several of our spring 2015 fabrics. Neon can be overpowering, but by using just the right amount in an outfit or on…

TRENDY TUESDAY: Tropical Paradise

April 29, 2014

I’m crazy about this tropical print trend. Layered leaves, luscious blooms and tropical birds camouflaged amongst palm trees and thick foliage in colours of bright coral, deep fuchsia, leafy green and sandy hues create a sense of escapism and run strong for SS14. Just remember, a little goes a long way, so if you chose…

This Tuesday I am inspired by all things metallic. I love the way wintery shades of black, dark greys, natural woods and creams complement the metallic finishes so well. They create a modern and dramatic effect that is both classy and industrial and TÉLIO has some gorgeous metallic fabrics to help create this look. Happy…

TRENDY TUESDAY: If You’re Wrinkled, You’re Rich!

June 25, 2013

I recently heard someone say ‘If you’re wrinkled, you’re rich.’ This quote was followed by a conversation about the general dislike of wrinkles in our garments. To most of us, wrinkles are often perceived as sloppy and lazy in appearance. The funny thing is; natural fibers tend to cost more than the synthetic ones which…

I’m so into indigo this season. It’s popping up all over the place. This natural dye can sometimes be more vibrant, and other times more subtle. This trend is re-igniting my love for all things blue! I’m in love with mixing deep dark blue with hits of white and denim. It’s so chic, and easy…
