TREND ALERT: Sequin Tunics
Have you ever had that moment where you see a piece of clothing and you know that you will never get over it. We say ”never get over it” because buying said piece is totally out of the question, but it simply will never leave our thoughts for as long as we live. Has that ever happened to you?
During Fashion Week, we fell in love with the most unexpected piece. The stunning green sequin tunic from Jasper Conran‘s Spring/Summer 2016 collection. It is simply to die for.
Isn’t it gorgeous?
Conran wasn’t the only one doing tunics, they were all over the runway. They’re back in a big way for Spring/Summer 2016! They’re so easy to wear, we can’t wait. They look good with flats, heels, they can be dressed up, dressed down, they’re totally multi-purpose.
Tunics are great, but sequin tunics are amazing! Here are some Télio fabrics that would make amazing tunics!
Are you excited for the tunic extravaganza that is sure to happen in 2016? Would you make your own tunic? Let us know!

INSPIRATION: Spring/Summer 2016's Lace Takeover
Times are changing, designers are making bold moves that reflect what is happening in our culture. 2015 was a big year for trans issues, with Laverne Cox being on the cover of Time magazine, Caitlyn Jenner‘s 17 million strong Diane Sawyer interview and the plethora of movies surrounding issues of gender transition, it would appear […]
TÉLIO TALK: Office Garden

CATCHING UP WITH: Télio's Canada's Breakthrough Designers Competition 2007 Special Mention Winner Thomas Tait
In 2007, at Télio’s Canada’s Breakthrough Designers Competition, one student caught the attention of our panel of judges, so much so that they awarded him a special creative mention (that has been part of the competition’s prizes ever since). Thomas Tait’s garment was so expertly constructed that they needed to acknowledge it, even though it didn’t necessarily […]
