Surely it was only a matter of time before X Factor judge Tulisa ventured into the fashion industry, and despite her Saturday night outfits being slammed as ‘fashion disasters’ by discerning viewers of the show, she has showed that she can easily translate her urban style into affordable high street clothing. With fans of the show continually comparing her styling decisions to her other female judge, Nicole, and Nicole seemingly winning the battle of the dresses, Tulisa has decided to put her muscle where her talents lie and come up with a range all by herself.
The ex singer of N-Dubz has seen her fashion decisions dividing the nation, as last week she wore an ill advised Pucci maxi dress that swamped her tiny frame and looked more market stall than high end fashion. But this has not stopped her stamping her very own street style onto her new range TFB or Tulisa for Banks clothing collection.
So if you were one of the thousands who vented their support for the edgy singer, you can now emulate her style by purchasing her own designed clothing wear. This is Tulisa’s debut line and the fashionista jury seems undecided as to whether it will be a fashion hit or miss.
Speaking about her new range, Tulisa said: “In the past I wasn’t that interested in fashion, but being on The X Factor has made me become much more aware of own my personal style.
To me, fashion is about having fun and experimenting and wearing what makes you feel good. Girls often ask me where I get my clothes so I thought I’d create my own collection, something that’s fun, feminine, full of attitude and that reflects my personality.”
And evidently, she has loved her collaboration with Banks fashion so much that a second collection is already in the pipeline. Her clothing selection includes skater dresses, playsuits, maxi neon dresses and of course, her trademark hoodies.
You can pre-order the TFB by Tulisa for Bank range from Bankfashion.co.uk from Friday 19th October and will then be available at Bank stores nationwide.
