One could say that Tashia Senn, native of Washington DC, and fashion have a long history together. As a child, Tashia would dress up in her mother’s pearls and clothes, subscribe to all of the fashion magazines, and dream of the day when her designs would be featured in those very magazines. Fashion became her focus and passion and ignited an innate desire to create beautiful and wearable art. With eyes wide open, Tashia headed for Manhattan to attend Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) where she received her degree in 2009. She also holds a degree from University of Pittsburgh in Communications.
At FIT, Tashia excelled as a design student and freelanced as a stylist and costume designer. While interning for luxury accessory designer Colette Malouf she was exposed to the mechanics of entrepreneurship and design management. Her projects as a student were reinforced by her experience styling for special events at Macy’s Herald Square.
Following her graduation from FIT, Tashia was eager to return home to DC and in October 2009, she launched her first collection of high end women’s evening wear, TASHIA SENN COLLECTIONS. The affection Tashia has for fashion as a young girl is reflected in the timeless pieces she creates that present each woman as beautiful and ageless. Her pieces exude romance, charm and creativity and have attracted the attention of fashion industry advocates, bloggers and retailers. Tashia Senn is a ready-to-wear collection but maintains a custom clothing feel. Tashia’s most poignant inspiration comes from her world travels, the influence of natural elements, and the diversity of cultures and customs that are expressed in her collections.
Tashia’s passion for design is also reflected in the creation of her non-profit organization SAVVY GIRL in 2004. The mission of SAVVY GIRL is to reach, assist, and mentor young women in an effort to transform their lives with personal and professional mentorships through the industry she loves most “fashion”.
“My goal is to create designs that capture the romance of life and place women at the center of attention. I thread every piece with the spirit of Paris, London, New York and DC, creating an inspired line that is elegant and unforgettable.”
