San Francisco, CA
Suzy Tamimi focuses on bringing a new dimension to clothing through her innovative textile designs, which developed from her own artwork and creative ways of manipulating fabric. She is always searching for a new way to communicate her ideas of fantasy and culture to bring a positive impact to the world. She believes fashion is a form of expression which has the power to transform, thus it can be very liberating. Suzy sets out to share this feeling through each one of her designs.
Suzy studied fashion and textile design at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
Textiles became an important component for expressing her ideas in an effective way, which made fashion more real for her, more of an art form expression. In 2000, Suzy was chosen as a finalist for the CFDA competition and in 2003 she graduated with honors after being chosen as an ITSTWO contest finalist in Italy becoming the only American student to compete. She also earned a scholarship to study abroad in Paris at Studio Bercot. After her arrival back to United States, Suzy felt it to be her destiny to create her own label and pursue her dream in hopes of inspiring others.
