New York-based designer Tanya Taylor will soon have a three-month pop-up shop in tandem with the Council of Fashion Designers of America and sponsored by Cadillac. Taylor is a designer worth watching and wearing.
Four years ago, she launched her own clothing line and her designs are anything but boring. As she said during a recent interview at Saks Fifth Avenue, “In different seasons I have to play with layering and texture and do colors in moment rather than in the summer where everything is fresh and colorful.”
When describing her collection, Taylor said there is a “laissez faire attitude in this collection, a lot of playful details that feel light hearted and energetic.”
Taylor has had a great customer in First Lady Michelle Obama who wore one of her fall ’16 dresses to the final White House holiday party last month. She was invited, as well, to the bash.
Interestingly, Taylor’s designs are inspired by her painting. For her most recent collection, she traveled to Capri and Cuba where she painted and was then inspired for her clothing line.
