Tamara Pogosian
With a family filled with creatives, Tamara found nourishment in an environment that would support her latent gifts. In her youth, there was painting, drawing, ballet, swimming, and karate classes; yet, these were short-lived. Art lessons soon followed, sometimes three nights a week; when, at last, by the age of twelve, she began to follow her passion for fashion.

These days, Tamara can “digest” stress and keep going. In her words, “she can design forever.” With every collection she becomes a graceful phoenix, and the next fashion week is her time of re-birth as an artist. Everyday, she taps into that vital side of business few dare venture: the creative side. This seems second nature for Tamara. She has settled right in, clothing men and women in a city for dreamers and achievers. How cool is she?
