As a teenager, she became a runway model while she continued to define her own unique style.

Some of Tanja’s most memorable experiences were exploring the grand bazaars of the Middle East, venturing off the beaten path to remote towns in Europe and discovering rare artisans in small villages throughout Asia. Filled with all the wonder and images of her world adventures she began to design her first collection. She started with a distinctive line of accessories and which became the “must haves” to socialites throughout Europe, New York and Los Angeles. Her destiny into the world of fashion was inevitable. Inspired by her lifelong love for fashion and exotic travels, Tanja’s designs are exceptionally tailored and made with the silhouettes of every woman in mind.
