Karen Millen Celebrate 30 Fashionable Years

Karen Millen is a high street brand that sensationally paves the way for design-led collections. Fantastic quality driven items providing attainable luxury fill the ultra modern stores and concession departments. With impeccable attention to detail, the brand is known for their professional suiting cuts, glamorous dresses and stunning leather pieces.

Being the first global design-led fashion brand to emerge from the UK, celebrating 30 years of success this Autumn/Winter 2011, their upcoming collection doesn't cease to disappoint. Hot on the trail of the mixed texture influences that we saw on the designer catwalks, Karen Millen puts their unique spin on one of winter's most sought after style trends.

Top £85 at www.karenmillen.com
 As we all know (and are possibly fed up of hearing about it right now!) animal prints were all over the catwalk. What I love about this Karen Millen top, however, is the combination of textured ruffles that add a different dimension to all of the prints we are seeing from lots of other brands.

Blouse £105 at www.karenmillen.com
 This blouse, to me, infuses the good old Victoriana theme that comes out every Fall. Envisioning the designer catwalk's dominatrix essence with sheer material and accentuating the womanly shape with a corset-inspired chest makes this piece a great investment for Autumn/Winter.

Skirt £105 at www.karenmillen.com
 One of my favourite things about Winter is lovely textured skirts with thick cosy tights! The texture mix on this skirt is wonderful, with contrasting inserts that give the iconic pencil skirt a modern twist. I'll be wearing mine with maroon coloured tights and furry ankle boots - lust!

Coat £265 at www.karenmillen.com
 The ultimate winter staple outfit piece has to be; you guessed it; the coat! To think you will be wearing it day in day out for months on end (given what our British weather is like!) it has to be a landmark fashion piece. But don't panic, as Karen Millen have designed this one with you in mind. Hitting three trends in one; we have the military look with the large buttons travelling down the coat's lapels, the texture mix with tweed and woollen mohair and of course that boy-girl trend the fashion journo's are going wild for; this coat will be a saviour to your winter wardrobe!

Dress £450 at www.karenmillen.com
And not forgetting that Karen Millen work wonders with leather (bet they couldn't take their eyes off the Chanel  AW11 catwalk!) The metallic leather pencil dress has jersey side panels and metal back zip. Now that's an iconic Karen piece we all know of and love!

So here's to thirty years of success at Karen Millen - and most likely to another thirty too!
