*NEW* Feature Friday - Emily Tonkin 14th of June



New Feature Friday!
Featuring Emily Tonkin

Hello my lovelies, it's officially Friday and you all know what that means! Yes Feature Friday on UniqueLoveStyle! This week's feature is the talented Emily Tonkin which I feel ever so honoured to interview and share her story with you.

Emily is a young fashion designer who specifies in Tennis wear, her creations can be found over on 30:fifteen and is already proving popular! Twilight star Judi Shekoni is a fan and First Lady Michelle Obama has also requested one of the stylish tennis outfits. As well as being recently launched in the UK, America and Australia, 30:fifteen is also about to launch in Dubai. 
Emily's designs make Tennis wear for women flattering for all body shapes and come in variety of colours too.  Her line has been featured in Top Sante, Tatler and has been requested for fitness shoots for Marie Claire, Health and Fitness and Women’s Fitness, which are all due out in the summer. Made in Chelsea the UK's popular reality series have also requested the sporty yet girly clothing line, for the stars as they pick up their rackets to play the beautiful game of tennis! 

I'm very proud to show you our interview together! She is such a lovely person and very inspiring.

Interview with Emily Tonkin l Tennis Wear Fashion Designer

1) What has been your key inspiration to your current career? So many people inspire me to be good and do good,(my dad is definitely one) but I have 2 close friends who I met in my first week at FIDM in LA and they are both so talented, creative and head strong:- they definitely inspired me to go with my heart and create something I am so very proud of. 
2) What do you enjoy the most about your job? The creative freedom. Everything you see about/from 30:Fifteen visually from the garments to the website, to the social media pages to our newsletters is all controlled by me. When I see the end product and hear peoples comments/feedback that is by far the best part of my job. 
3) To date, what has been your 'proudest' moment? Graduating from FIDM, I proved a lot of people (myself included) that I had successfully turned my life around for the better and having my mum, Dad and Brother there together to share it with, really made my heart happy.
4) Where do you see yourself in the future? Still doing what I am doing, building 30:Fifteen into a truly successful lifestyle brand, and keeping our partnerships strong. 
5) What tips/advice would you give to someone who wants to go down the same career path as yourself? Believe in yourself. 
6) Which would you say is your favourite item that you've designed at the moment? From our debut collection I just loved the Alethia Dress. It is the same dress Michelle Obama requested, but it is also my favourite of the dresses to play tennis in. It's so flattering to my body shape and it makes me feel very confident/comfortable.

I'd like to thank both Emily and the wonderful Catherine Lynn Scott from London Flair PR, for their time. It's really opened my eyes to sports fashion and the talented people behind it.
