Tallinn Fashion Week has started with a full speed of shows and I'm excited to see the new collections from talented Estonian designers. I will be attending the shows every day and will bring you along to my favorite ones through Instagram stories and blog posts😊

My choice of outfit for yesterday was totally based on the 3 major fall trends and combining them together😉 I wanted to start #TFW looking sharp & chic, so I dressed in head-to-toe black and played only with different textures and materials.

Velvet being the "it" material of the season, as you all know, had to be in my outfit! Which is why I wore a velvet sweatshirt and made it the center of attention. I paired my sweater with a leather wrap midi skirt (another hot piece this season!) and embellished pumps, which are taking over fashion brands and street style by the storm.

As for the shows itself, then last night was the beginning of the fashion week with the annual fashion design award gala Kuldnõel (The Golden Needle), where 3 designers are nominated for the prize for their consistent outstanding work in creating designs for at least 5 years. The quality, functionality, beauty as well as success in business and export are taken into consideration. At the  gala, these 3 designers show their collection and one of them wins the prize. This year, the three outstanding designers nominated for the needle were bag designer Kadri Kruus, haute couture designer Kristina Viirpalu and internationally known artist & designer Marit Ilison.

Though Viirpalu won the award this time (and I totally love her designs, use of materials and the attention to details👌), I attended the shows wearing the velvet sweater from Marit Ilison's Black Heart collection as a support for her being one of my fav Estonian designers. Known for her amazing coats, Marit's collections have been featured in different Vogues, shown at Paris Fashion Week and sold at 10 Corso Como to name a few. Her yesterday's collection full of textures and colors was amazing! Below are some of my favorite looks from the show:
