Tengdahl Travel Essentials
Vacation season has arrived! That only means one question: what to wear?? Luckily for you, wherever you’re going this year – the city, country, coast or somewhere cold – we have you covered. Trips, travelling and Tengdahl… a perfect trio!
A trip to an iconic city is a vacation to die for. Think New York, Milan, London, Paris… these places scream sophistication and they scream style. So grab your trendiest, statement pieces for a metropolitan blast!
Days by the seaside, salty breeze and tan lines… what a dream! If you’re heading down to the coast this season, be sure to pack your favourite summer dresses and loose shorts to complement your sun-kissed glow!
Did someone say ski trip? Puffer jackets, delicate cardigans, body hugging dresses, tall boots and an affinity for layers… effortless winter style!
Some of us prefer a more laid-back holiday season, so the countryside may be your choice of location. We love bright, flowy, printed pieces… eye catching and vibrant. Add in a few country classics such as a suede vest and leather boots for that extra touch of rodeo glam!
With December fast approaching, festive season is filtering in like the rays of the summer sun. Christmas, New Years and so much more – this eventful time of year calls for the chance to revitalize your wardrobe with all the celebratory essentials. Not sure what to wear?

It’s that time again! Late October means that spring racing season is about to flood in once again, reviving our spirits in time for the end
of another glamourous year. Think flowing dresses, decadent millenary, glasses of champagne and light chatter reverberating through
the open air – no wonder it generates such a buzz. But, of course, as with any such dazzling event, comes the age old question –
what to wear? And that is where we come in! Take a look at our racing dress code guide below for a delicate infusion of tradition and
trend that will ensure another spectacular season of fashions on the field.
The most elegant and traditional day is the kick-start of the season – Derby Day. There is big money to be won, and chic elegance
dominates both on and off the field. The monochrome code is strictly adhered too – there is no place for colour, and no place for prints.
Look for a bold black or bold white piece, or perhaps a two-piece combination of both – just because there's no vibrance, does not mean
you should not make a statement! Pair the outfit of your choosing with accessories that bring out an aura of class; we’re thinking a
classic black headpiece, decorated high heels and decadent jewellery.

The first words I wrote on my inspiration board when thinking about this collection were...
GOING WITH THE FLOW
SURFING THE WAVES OF LIFE
LIFE IS A WAVE OF EVENTS
Like most Australians growing up near the beach, weekends and Christmas holidays spent camping along our beautiful coastline has naturally drawn me to have a strong
connection to the ocean. I have spent countless hours watching the waves roll onto the beach; body surfing and beach fishing with my parents are some of my most
blissful memories. Getting lost in the wave, its rolling structure, intensity, expansiveness and ever changing beauty inspired me to design this unique collection called
I have named the exclusive silk chiffon, silk crepe de chine and silk cotton prints, Wave, Lapis Lazuli, Azure and Black Onyx respectively, to represent all the varying
shades of the ocean. Super soft linens and cotton voiles provide the grounding colours of sky blue, white, navy and sand. Nautical stripe cotton knits with trims of
printed silk and tassels bring together this beautifully balanced “in the flow” collection.
"These were the first few words I scribed in my journal when I was thinking about the next collection.
Transitioning from one range to another can always be challenging for any designer. The desire to create an innovative, unique collection that excites my loyal, quality driven clientele, while enticing a whole new generation of clients, is what inspires and motivates me.
My purpose is always to stay true to the brand’s commitment of sustainable, beautiful to wear, uncomplicated, effortless fashion, using the highest quality fabrics and craftsmanship.
The inspiration for the "Angel" collection came to me after experiencing damage to our home in the extreme weather conditions of Cyclone Debbie in March of this year.
Twelve hours of horrendously devastating weather, then the next day was perfect blue skies and bright white sunshine.
Even though we all go through difficult times there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, knowing the storm passes. The importance of staying positive and just getting on with the job gave me another one of life's lessons.
My "Angel" collection is about opening our perceptual horizons to seeing the beauty in ourselves and our surroundings. I wanted to use ultra- soft, natural fibres in this all white collection. The designs are voluminous, spacious and flowing, representing an angel flying and the feeling of freedom when worn."
'Angel' Spring 2017
The pulsing movement of the sea
Mother Nature's underwater garden
Perfecting life so completely
Magical blessing and abundance everywhere
Opening up our eyes
And living life with blissful simplicity
(Written on a sandy beach in Fiji's pure North)
"A family holiday to Fiji's pure north was an unexpected inspiration for this collection.
Staying in a remote part of Fiji's third largest island Vanua levu, near the township of Savusavu, I experienced diving in the magical underworld of rainbow and black magic reef. It was the perfect environment to create this magical collection of unique geometrical and botanical floral prints inspired by the rare black coral, the pearl farms and the mutability of this unique fascinating underwater garden.
When I first laid eyes on the original fabric strike offs, I got goose bumps. I knew this was going to be a special collection. It was decided back in Fiji that I would call the collection "Magic", as a tribute to the black magic reef from where the inspiration first came.
My vision and wishes when designing this sustainable beautifully crafted collection was for the wearer to feel and experience the underwater garden of Fijian Magic."
