Woman Crush Wednesdays featuring Frankie Turner!

Woman Crush Wednesdays

♡Frankie Turner ♡

This week we are introducing Frankie Turner – during the week she’s our fabulous Wholesale Account Manager at Collectif and a magical mermaid on weekends! We love her style and creative flair, so read on to find out why we find her so inspiring!1. Hi Frankie! If you had to use three words to describe your style, what would you choose?
I’d say bohemian, floaty and fun (with a hint of drama!)

 2. Name your favourite Collectif pieces from our Autumn Winter collection and what do you love about them?
There are so many….but if I had to narrow it down I’d go for: 1. Milla Swing Skirt in red– it’s a full circle dream and is such a good dancing skirt.  2. Anjelica Velvet Maxi Dress – this is on my Christmas party glamour bunny wish list. 3. Caterina Ginsberg Swing Dress – so flattering and cosy, and great with boots or cute heels.

3. What are your top three picks from Lulu Hun and accessories this season?
I am waiting for some amazing black faux fur trimmed boots from Lulu Hun – they are so sassy and called Tatiana- check them out when they arrive in October! All of the new hair flowers are really good this season, and the Erstwilder brooches are incredible (especially the Unicorn!!)

4. If you could be a designer for a day, what would you create for Collectif?
Ooh it’s so hard because I feel that we already cover so many designs that I love. But if I could add one piece it would have to be a ballerina style dress with a really full tulle skirt in dusty blues and pinks. Something really romantic and special. Maybe with a sparkly cape to make it fully magical.

 5. If you be a feature guest on any TV show (does not have to be current), what would you pick?
I would have loved to have been on Soul Train from the 70’s… the dancers were amazing!!!!

6. If you could be any mythical creature, what would you choose and why?
Anyone who knows me would expect me to say a Unicorn… but I like to combine my Mythical creatures so it would have to be a Mermicorn! (mermaid / unicorn!)

7. We know you love to host costume parties and events! As you are incredibly creative you make all of your own costumes! Which one are you most proud of and why?
Why thank you! I do love to create characters and costumes and it’s hard to pick. But if I had to choose I think my Snow Queen is a favourite… it’s SO sparkly and magical, and I love creating the makeup look to go with it.

 8. What’s the funniest thing that has happened to you recently?
It didn’t happen to me exactly, but the cat that lives next door to me recently had to have a haircut, and she now looks like a little lion. Every time I see her I have to sing Hakuna Matata from the Lion King!

 9. Who is your ultimate style icon?
It would have to be Stevie Nicks, she’s a goddess!

10. Is there anything that you are you freakishly bad at?
Whistling! I try so hard and would love to be able to wolf whistle… but I really can’t do it

11. And lastly – Acorns, check print or velvet cats?
Check prints all the way!


Thank you Frankie for joining us and giving us the opportunity to learn more about your own personal style! Join us the same time next week for more!

Love the Collectif team
