God Save Luella

I am a huge fan of Luella Bartley's ladylike, incredibly fun and fresh take on clothes, so I was really disappointed to hear that her label has been forced out of business since her distributor, VSQ, withdrew its backing. Only a year ago, Bartley was named Designer of the Year at the British Fashion Awards.

Luella's Spring 2010 Ready-to-Wear collection was fantastic: 60s-inspired, ultra-feminine puff-bell silhouettes and sweetheart necklines with a distinctly British edge. I really hope someone steps in and helps the label out!

The former Vogue journalist once described her clothes as "the kind you can get drunk and fall over in", and accordingly, some of Britain's most famous It-Girls have been seen romping and raving in her creations. Maybe they should take up Luella's cause - I'd personally love to see Lily Allen and Peaches Geldof hosting a bake sale, but that's just me (Note: I'm a huge fan of both).
