A Moment with Tabitha…
When you found out you were nominated you…
were excited!
Each season I…
juggle lots of plates and wear many different hats!
Being nominated for a CFDA Fashion Award is…
an honor
One of my biggest sources of inspiration is…
England
Failure for me is…
not an option. “If you fall off a horse, you get right back on”
One of the best things about my job is…
every day is different.
I look for inspiration…
in everything.
One of the more difficult parts of being a designer…
is the production and deliveries.
My words to live by are…
“What did I do today to make a difference”
My guilty pleasure is…
Carbohydrates
