Designer Spotlight: Tolani!
One thing I really enjoy about my job is having the opportunity to get the inside scoop of the latest fashion coming forward along with new designers. Lately (in lieu of Spring & Summer) I have been adoring all pieces from Alka Tolani (AKA Tolani). Here is a little bio about this brand from their website ..
Welcome to Tolani Collection
Growing up in the Mountain region of North East India, designer Alka Tolani had the opportunity to travel extensively through the rural areas and was exposed to the rich culture and heritage of those areas. Through her travels, Tolani grew a deep love for design and the fashions of different cultures.
Using global cultures as inspiration, Tolani has created an accessory and clothing line which diffuses native design elements with the elegance of contemporary day to day wear. Full of eye-catching prints, intricate detailing, and vibrant blends of color, Tolani captures a variety of styles while maintaining its essence, the combination of modernity and tradition.
Due to the beautiful designs and luxe quality, Tolani has become a favorite amongst Hollywood’s “it” girls. Celebrities such as Jessica Alba, Halle Berry, Nicole Richie, Hilary Duff, Leighton Meester, Taylor Momsen, Rachel Bilson, Shenae Grimes, Sienna Miller, Miley Cyrus, Ashlee Simpson, Kim Kardashian, Selena Gomez, Tori Spelling, AnnaLynne McCord, Vanessa Minnillo, Christina Aguilera, and Lauren Conrad have been spotted in Tolani.
Currently at Petal Charlotte we have the cutest Tolani tops and tunics with lustrous bold patterns. I really do swoon over them and how delicately luxurious they all are. Yes they are pricey..but sometimes you DO NEED a splurge for yourself. Not to mention these are on par pieces for a honeymoon or a little getaway with your man..(wink wink). Swing by Petal (in Dilworth) to shop a few of her pieces!
