5 Things to Know About…Rebecca Taylor

We can thank the sandy beaches of New Zealand for giving us the urbane mind of designer Rebecca Taylor. From her studio in NYC, she spins out the kind of clothing we all want to wear — feminine but cool, flattering but sexy, bold but wearable. Her embellishments, use of color, and appealing silhouettes have already made her a staple in closets of fashion icons like Alexa Chung, Reese Witherspoon, Rashida Jones, Emmy Rossum, and the Duchess of Cambridge, to name a few. And that’s not to mention her rabid fan base here at Gilt.com! Before you stock your fall wardrobe with her designs — starting at noon ET on September 6 — find out five fun facts to know about the designer.

1. Her interest in fashion stemmed from an early childhood interest in sewing and fashion design, which explains the multi-faceted references that appear in every collection.

2. Taylor’s pieces have been featured in magazines around the world, including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Glamour, W, Nylon, Marie Claire, and In Style.

3. While Rebecca Taylor puts on a lavish show every season at the tents (now at Lincoln Center) as part of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in NYC, her debut show was part of Gen Art.

4. The line launched in 1996 with a focus on apparel, expanding to include accessories in 2008. The accessories collection includes shoes, handbags, and other small leather goods.

5. While you can find Rebecca Taylor in boutiques, department stores, and on Gilt.com, she also has seven freestanding stores in New York, California and Arizona.

Label We Love: Tocca

The old saying about when one door closes, another opens has never held more true than for designer Emma Fletcher. The Australian native had decided to close down her cult-favorite NoLIta boutique Lyell after the birth of her daughter, when the opportunity arose to reinvigorate Tocca.

A line that was a favorite of cool girls everywhere when it launched in 1994, Tocca had become as well known for its lovely beauty line as for its original feminine designs. The self-taught designer and former winner of the Ecco Domani Foundation Award for Young Designers has risen to the challenge with incredible success.

Fletcher has reinvigorated the brand, as evidenced by the fall collection available on Gilt.com, starting at noon ET on August 31. Inspired by Victorian stationery, the collection features pieces that fuse delicate details with flattering shapes. Nubby wool tweeds are charming in schoolboy coats, while peter pan collared tops find edge in bold fuchsia. And scalloped details run throughout in standout shift dresses and on-trend shorts.

Shop Tocca on Gilt.com, starting at noon ET on August 31.
