Luella Bartley

Luella at 2006 Elle Style Awards

Fashionistas took in a deep breath when the news broke that the fashion label Luella had not found a financial backer for them to continue trading after their contract ended with Club 21. However, not one to be beaten by a little adversity, designer Luella Bartley has been reported to be continuing her search for a backer.

I really hope that Luella finds a backer, other than this set back, she seems to have a golden touch. Her ‘Gisele’ bag for Mulberry revived their fortunes and a number of celebrities are big fans of her work. From the young and beautiful like Keira Knightley and Cheryl Cole to the experienced Hollywood elite like Gwyneth Paltrow and Cate Blanchett, even royalty have worn Luella Bartley’s collections.

Named designer of the year in November 2008, a lot has changed for the Luella brand in a year. Her work is feminine, yet holds on to a degree of quirky attitude that is rarely seen elsewhere but is rather unfortunately quite pricey to the average woman. News websites have made it clear that she is a victim of the recession rather than a victim of mismanagement. However it happened, I can’t help but be disappointed.


In the meantime, I’m going to console myself by browsing for a classically beautiful designer dress for the work’s Christmas party.
