With no formal design training, Barcelona-born Frank Tell learnt from his grandmother at a very young age and moved to New York at 14, initially working for Sue Stemp and then branching out on his own in 2007.

Only in his 3rd season, he gathered a pretty impressive front row including Elle’s Kate Lanphear, Olivier Zahm, jewellery designer, Pamela Love and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld. In the intimate environs of the Soho Grand, he displayed a concise collection of wispy party dresses decorated with pailettes and sculpted micropleats that snaked up the bodice. The show was styled by super stylist, Keegan Singh but “it’s not so much a collaboration with him, but much more that we’re really close friends.” Backstage, Tell said, “The inspiration for this collection was the inspiration from Fall which was Penelope Tree, but turning it into something soft and loungey, instead of very fitted looks.”
