We had the good fortune of connecting with Tamar Tsomaia and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Tamar, what habits do you feel play an important role in your life?
Meditation, mindfulness

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Behind TamaraNY stands a young designer Tamar Tsomaia. Originally from the country of Georgia, Tamar moved to New York in 2013. After practicing law in her country, she decided to take a dramatic shift in her career and start a new life as a fashion designer. Even though Tamar pursued a legal career, her love to her true passion was unstoppable, it was undeniable even at a very young age when she started playing with her mom’s jewelry and making sketches on the walls at home. She graduated from the Art School in Tbilisi, Georgia, and continued studying fashion at FIT, NY. Tamars first created woman’s accessories line inspired by flowers and feminine energy, the collection was successfully sold out. After working with different companies in NY and Miami as an accessory and jewelry designer Tamar decided it was time for another step forward, and created her own company – “TamaraNY” based in Brooklyn studio. Later on Tamar launched the clothing line and participated in NYFW 2020. 2021 she moved from NY to Beverly Hills, California where she works for Lucy De Castenou Couture. She keeps creating stunning bridal and evening gowns and manages a bridal store in the middle of Beverly Hills.
My collections are inspired by Audrey Hepburn, the symbol of elegance and femininity.
Success is achievable if you’re laser focused on what you do and have the fire inside you, you do what you love and keep pushing everyday to make it happen.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Just recently my friend visited from Miami. We went to Blvd bar in Beverly Wilshire hotel a couple of times. Great ambiance, delicious food and excellent service. Avra is one of the best restaurants that I would recommend to go to. Polo club at Beverly Hills hotel also an amazing place to visit. Rodeo drive for shopping. Mastro’s restaurant on canon drive and Wally’s restaurant as well to dine.
