Fashion Designer Tina Tandon: ‘Women Like What Other Women Can’t Have’

Meet Tina Tandon, a premier fashion designer making waves by dressing up stars like Padma Lakshmi, Janina Gavankar, and Royal Pains’ Reshma Shetty.

Like many designers, Tandon attended NYC’s FIT. She then kicked off her career working for Escada and Christian Lacroix, before stepping out to help launch West Elm, and finally branching off to create her signature Posh Pari Couture line in 2006.

With Posh Pari Couture, Tandon set her focus on outfitting her ideal client: Modern, versatile and affluent South Asian women. Two years later, she then branched out to wider audiences by starting up T.Tandon, an environmentally-conscious line. T. Tandon focused on dressing up the cosmopolitan woman. After creating buzz at New York Fashion Week, Tandon’s designs were becoming stocked across chic boutiques across the country, from Kitson in Beverly Hills to Montmartre on Madison Avenue in New York to Mark Shale in Chicago. 

The Aerogram recently caught up with Tandon to learn about her Fall 2014 collection, which trend she finds utterly unattractive, and how she truly feels about knockoffs.

How do you and your team decide what’s going to be trending a season ahead?

My job is to think of what women want before they know it.My job is to think of what women want before they know it.There are actually trend forecasting services used in the industry from which many creations stem in addition to my own personal instinct. Of course, magazines then spotlight the designs or a celebrity is spotted with them on and that’s how a trend is born.


Who is the Fall 2014 woman based on your collection?

I am my own woman for my collections: Feminine, fashionable, and fun. The only thing that changes every season are silhouette, themes, colors and fabrics, the woman I design for remains the same. I design contemporary apparel for the professional, everyday fashionable woman who not only gets thrilled by having novelty in her closet but things that are limited edition.

Honestly, women like what other women can’t have.

I’ve noticed there’s a bit more earthy elegance to the Fall 2014 collection. What inspired you to go this route?

I’m always inspired by nature, my travels, American vintage, the now and the future. My design process starts with the fabric, much like Coco Chanel. I first search the fabric markets and mills, and see what is speaking to me, and then a collection morphs from that keeping in mind all the elements — the trends forecasted, what is appealing to me and grabbing my attention at the moment, and always keeping the female body and what women want in mind before they know it.

Kids Showcase Latest Trends at petitePARADE; London Fog To Unveil First Designer Collection

Fashion week at Lincoln Center may be over, but the fashion scene is still bustling in Chelsea. NY1's Jessica Abo filed the following report.

Taking the lead from models on the catwalk, kids strutted their stuff at petitePARADE. The bi-annual runway showcases the latest trends for kids from toddlers up to tweens.

"We're featuring five different designers today, ranging from sportwear-inspired designers all the way up to the luxury market," said Gina Rizzo, co-founder of petitePARADE.

Amber Sabathia's collection, CCandy, hit a home run.

"Everyone knows my husband is CC Sabathia," Sabathia said. "We have four children. I've been in the game going to multiple games, multiple all-star games. We went to the World Series, we won. There was one that was thing missing in baseball, and that was fun fashion colors, and so we took the logo and we put a splash of neon, a hypercolor, and you can also root for your team but also be very fashionable at the same time."

Over at Root Studio, London Fog is getting ready to unveil its first designer collection, called Reimagine the Rain.

Designers Cynthia Rowley, Badgley Mischka and Chris Benz are the names behind these outerwear collections for the London Fog label.

"We're just excited about it because Badgley Mischka is so known for evening gowns and red carpet glamour, and you don't see that on the street, so hopefully, we're going to see these on the streets of New York City and Hollywood and all the places we travel to," said designer James Mischka. "We're looking forward to seeing these on real women, real time.

"I grew up in Oregon, which is probably the rainiest state in this country. I remember my father as a child, every day, he threw on his London Fog raincoat. So for me, it was such an iconic brand," said designer Mark Badgley. "So when we had the possibility to work on a project with them, we got a real kick out of it."

"For me, it's sort of like, everybody has that great trench coat that they love. How can we update the shape and have it be both a throwback to kind of 1950s, great Mad Men London Fog, and then, a great modern print? And I love a floral," Benz said. "It's this funny, kind of oversized wallpaper floral that looks great, I think."

The rainwear is available online and in select department stores.


Lisbon Fashion Week kicks off with "New Blood" from young designers

SANGUE NOVO showed the creations of numerous up-and-coming designers, including Catarina Oliveira, Sofia Macedo, Ina Koelln, and Olga Noronha.

Noronha’s collection celebrates the partnership of strong metal structures enveloping bodies covered by satin, to give it an intimate enclosure.

"It is about altering the comfort zone of the people that walk, the mannequins that walk with the pieces that I presented, and the people who surround them. So, even if there’s a sense of attraction and eroticising the sacred of the nun with the blood-red long dresses, but open dresses, and with angelic faces that we know might not be that angelic. I want to mess with people’s head and make them think and feel things they cannot verbalize literally." Designer Olga Noronha said.

On the first day of Moda Lisboa, experienced designer Valentim Quaresma also presented his new collection, born out of a mix of inspiration between the Middle East and Africa.

The designer of jewellery and accessories has created body harnesses. Materials of leather and nylon are assembled into unique fashion statements and works of art.

"It was a mix of the Middle East and Medieval times that deeply inspired me. But I’ve also used some African references and you can see that in the kind of materials I’ve worked with in this collection." Designer Valentim Quaresma said.

The event that gathers some of Portugal’s main designers in the capital runs throughout the weekend, showing the remaining Autumn/Winter collections for 2014/15.

Lisbon Fashion Week takes place twice a year after Paris Fashion Week. This time around the event has attracted more than 4-hundred journalists as well as some 20,000 buyers from around the world.
