How to live in color with Tanya Taylor

Welcome to Cozying Up with The Clear Cut where we get up close and personal with women that inspire us. This week we’re cozying up with Tanya, founder of Tanya Taylor, an independent fashion brand based in New York City founded in 2012. We chat about the inspiration behind her designs, how to find your personal style, and what your engagement ring says about you!

Listen here for the full podcast:



Raised in a creative environment, Tanya was encouraged to explore art from a young age. From taking art classes to painting vibrant murals on the walls of her childhood home, it all led her to finding her purpose as a creative entrepreneur. 


Founded in 2012, the brand presents a unique and refreshing vision inspired by the city's energy, art, and the diverse women who inhabit it. Over a few years, the brand was gaining attention to the point where Michelle Obama wore pieces from the Tanya Taylor line 13x during her time as First Lady!


Tanya discusses the evolution of brands and size inclusion over recent years. Nowadays, the fashion industry is more accepting of newer brands and acknowledges that not every company has the budget to be on the fashion week runway.


Tanya shares her engagement ring which is an old mine cut diamond. Next, we play the engagement ring game where we discuss the owner’s personalities for the latest ring trends. Tune in to listen to what Tanya thinks is trendy (and what’s not). You can also watch our TikTok to view the diamonds we played with!
