By following in her mother’s footsteps, Tiffany enrolled in The High School of Fashion Industries in Manhattan, and went on to graduate from FIT. In 2002, while brainstorming a brand name, Tiffany created a term that described the ideal woman she wanted to design for: a "BUTCH DIVA".
Prior to starting her own company, Tiffany worked for design labels Sean John, Catherine Malandrino, Alice + Olivia, and Ralph Lauren. A true queen of the night, Tiffany took the NYC fashion scene by storm, spreading awareness of the brand and grasping the attention of future loyal clients by wearing her pieces to parties and creating a buzz that would define some of today's most influential trends.
