Meet Tanya and Learn How She Got Started
Me? A Boss Lady? Ha! I never would have imagined going out on my own, but here I am, taking a leap of faith. When they said life is a journey - they weren't lying! Every decision I've made, and experience I've had has lead me here. Late last year I decided to launch my own bridesmaid collection under my own namesake. Making this enormous decision was not easy, and I've felt so many emotions since then (excitement, fear, anxiety, happiness), but knowing that my friends and family believe in me has helped tremendously!
Let me back up a second and tell you my story. I am the daughter of a very talented designer who founded an award winning bridal company back in 1986. The eighties were all about big sleeves and taffeta dresses, but my mom took a risk and created the original two piece bridesmaid dress that you could truly wear again. Can you believe 30 years later, bridesmaid separates are coming back in such a big way?
I never in a million years thought that I'd be launching my own bridesmaid collection but never say never. I've always had a tug of war between my right and left brain. In college I changed majors every year - starting in the art school and ending up in the finance school. It's a head scratcher I know :) My interests in both the creative and science of life continued as I worked in accounting, finance, marketing, merchandising and design.
Looking back I realize I've been preparing for this venture my whole life. The only thing holding me back was me! Finally I realized that the only path to happiness is to listen to my intuition, follow my dreams and believe in myself. It's only now that all of my experiences have led me to follow in my mom's footsteps and become an entrepreneur. I hope you'll join me on my journey as I blog about my new collection, upcoming events and tricks of the trade. - love, tanya
