Welcome to The Tutu Bow-tique. My name is Tara and I am the creator of The Tutu Bow-tique. All of your tutus are hand made right here in New Jersey by yours truly. I started this venture by combining my "old world" with my "new world". Upon graduating from college with a degree in Fashion Merchandising and Marketing I headed right to NYC. First interning for a summer at a handbag and accessories wholesale distributor in midtown Manhattan, where my office looked directly into the Empire State Building. I was able to set a great foundation for the fashion world... ( not to mention fabulous bags!) After my internship was complete I went over to the otherside of the Empire State Building working for an Intimate Apparel and Sleepwear Company on 34th St. There I really learned the entire business from start to finish. Starting as a production assistant handling the large retail store orders and placing them with overseas factories to get them produced. I handled everything from placing the order to approving the fabric and colors to the fittings on to getting the order put on the boat and shipped. I worked my way up from Assistant to Director overseeing production, design and the advertising and PR departments. While preparing for our New York Fashion week Fashion show we found it difficult to make intimates not to "racey". We then came up with the idea to create TUTU's for every look to cover the models some on the runway. Doing those fashion shows and all the work and creativity that came with it was so much fun and something I've been so passionate about.
Since leaving the fashion world my husband and I have been so blessed with our AMAZING 20 month old baby boy Michael. While soul searching, my good friend and fellow co-worker became pregnant with a baby girl. As I was thinking of something special to give her for her baby shower it hit me, we loved creating looks for the fashion shows together. Now, instead of making tutus for our models I'm going to make tutu's for her baby. Each tutu was coming cuter then the next and before you knew it everyone was raving about them. That's how I turned my old world NYC Fashionista into my new world Mommy Fashionista.
I take such pride in creating the most beautiful tutus for all your special occasions. No detail is to small or to big. Anything you envision I can create for you. I take pride in my work and will work with you one on one if need be, so do not hesitate to contact me directly. I look forward to creating memories for you.
