Designer & Celebrity Stylist
Tanya Marie, celebrity stylist and designer, is a Jamaican born Miami native that always has always had a passion for unique, avant garde design. As a child she watched her mother buy beautiful dresses, cut a slit up the side and say "I'm ready to go". Free hand with a pair of scissors, creating her own fabulous versions of whatever her heart desired, the designer gene was passed down to Tanya Marie. While studying business at the University of Miami, this former Miami Heat dancer & Miami Dolphins cheerleader worked in high end boutiques, starting out as a stylist and eventually a buyer. Her parents could not understand why she wouldn't get a "better job". It was simply due to that fact that her passion was to help women feel their best by looking their best. Within these boutiques, Tanya Marie began perfecting her own craft. She would take a designer Roberto Cavalli gown that was not getting the clients attention it deserved, so she would add her own flair, cut it up and taking back on the sales floor. Immediately, those items became the boutiques' most desired items.There began her passionate love affair with design; instinctively and effortlessly Tanya Marie hand sew intricate details to create her own magical items from scratch, gaining the admiration and cult following from socialites and celebrities alike.Tanya Marie found her divine purpose, never forgetting that clothes are to fit the woman, not the other way around.
Today, in her Miami- Design District showroom boutique. you can experience her imagination in person through her choice in rich, colorful fabrics and textures of her design. The enchanting, flowing, one of a kind design is custom tailored to flatter and honor every woman.
