Vacations are all about relaxing and rejuvenating, so the last thing anyone wants is a stressful packing experience. Elaine created
The Strand tote to travel well and wear stylishly.
The soft, foldable leather totes are available in Blush Taupe, Cobalt and Tangerine, and were inspired by trips to Galveston’s Strand District.
“My inspiration for “The Strand” tote was to create a bag that could take me away for a relaxing weekend to my favorite, close-to-home, beach town–the historic Galveston Island.”
Shops, restaurants and other stops delight along The Strand.
“I wanted to design a tote I can use for all my beach-to-boardwalk necessities, but also transition easily into evening for dinner or drinks with friends and family.”
“Whether it’s strolling The Strand and popping into
La Kings Candy store, having drinks at the historic Tremont Hotel, or grabbing lunch at the delicious Mosquito Café, The Strand tote takes me there.”

Elaine has always adored New York City, and now that her
Texas Glam boutique is stylishly rooted on the Upper East Side, she has another reason to spend time in the city.
Day One of Elaine’s current trip was an exciting mix of editor meetings and social events. Exactly what you’d expect for a luxury fashion designer’s time in New York.
Loved meeting Thomas Waller, Accessories Editor and Elyse Maloni, Assistant Accessories Editor,
Such a lovely night at the beautiful home of Karen Klopp, creator of

Elaine and Brianna, our gorgeous model from Neal Hamil, getting glam at the Sao Paulo photo shoot.
The color and vibrancy of South America, inspired Elaine’s
spring 2014 collection, and the results are bold bags, shoes and accessories made of fun textures and intense hues.
Sao Paulo Glam Guide details some of her favorite pieces, but we’ve also captured a few pictures for a look behind-the-scenes of the Sao Paulo photo shoot. The tangerine Nala, the Lola Rio Woven, the distressed metallic Isabella clutch and the Julia and Katrina wedges were among the pieces Elaine loved for the shoot.
Enjoy sunny Sao Paulo!
It’s always sunny in Sao Paulo! The Nala tangerine bag pops against this two piece skirt and top by Chloe Dao.
Elaine styles the spring 2014 shoot with Brianna, the model for the Elaine Turner spring campaign.
Playing with accessories is part of the photo shoot process…and a lot of fun!
It’s no surprise that the fashion flock have found their way to
1091 Madison Avenue during New York Fashion Week for bubbles, bags, boots and some Texas Glam time.
Drawn to Elaine’s fun and feminine aesthetic, bloggers from across the country are getting their fashion refresh at her new Madison Avenue boutique. Cold temps mean boots stole the style spotlight, but with the promise of spring’s first bloom, bloggers are excited to wear Elaine’s
new collection, which includes bright citrus colors, gold detail accents and saturated hues.
Beautiful bloggers, glamorous bags and shoes, comfy pink couches and perfectly chilled Prosecco. Quite the stylish combination for New York Fashion Week.
There’s no doubt about it. Elaine likes to have fun. It is one of the four basic philosophies of her GGIF mantra…
Glamorous! Giving! Intimate! Fun!
Here’s a look at a fun and yes, glamorous event hosted by Elaine for her retail team in 2013 at Coppa in Rice Village, just steps from her flagship store.
Store managers united at the Elaine Turner headquarters, planning future launches and discuss how they use G.G.I.F. to connect customers with the brand.
“Everyone’s personality is so different, but very entertaining. We were cracking up throughout the entire dinner,” Rice Village sales associate, Katie says.
We look forward to a very GGIF 2014. Cheers!
Capturing the vision and message of a collection is more than just glamorous products, a beautiful model and a scenic location. It’s also about careful planning right down the smallest detail. It’s about collaboration and a shared goal. And, when a fashion shoot is successful, it’s also about magical moments, immortalized on film.
That is just what happened with Elaine’s Fall 2013 behind-the-scenes video
We get to see Elaine exacting her vision for her collection. Pulling looks, scouting locations, working with her creative team-these are the moments you expect to see in a behind-the-scenes video.
But this video is so much more. It’s an intimate look at Elaine herself.
Watching the Fall 2013 video puts you alongside Elaine and makes you feel part of her creative team. Fashion is serious business, but it’s also fun and funny, joyful and energizing.
So push play and join the Glamorous, Giving, Intimate and Fun Elaine Turner team for a look at how a vision becomes a beautiful reality.
