Designer Profile: Frank Tell
Text by Diana of our.city.lights
One day I believe Frank Tell will be a household name alongside names such as Marc Jacobs, Anna Sui and Zac Posen to name a few. Today, however, he is an up and coming designer from Spain, residing in New York, a relative newcomer to fashion.
I first saw him in Elle magazine’s March 2009 issue and it struck me how young and striking he looked: almost as attractive as his dresses. His Spring 09 line looked like it came off a Godard film set, lots of 60's influence, soft lines, feminine, and whimsical, and yes, even a little reminiscent of Marc by Marc Jacobs!

Fall 09 was a little more grown up, sharper, with more new wave influence and a sci-fi edge. The palettes of creams, grays, black and shimmer give it a softer tone, which contrasts with the sharper silhouette.
Dream Sequins and other bloggers had the opportunity to see his show for Spring 10 during New York Fashion Week, and although I am jealous, I believe they got to see one of the first collections of a great designer in the making.
