Talk about connections. TT Collection designer Tiffany Saidnia's first foray into fashion was via famous celebrity stylist, Jessica Pastor, where she learned the wants of high-profile customers. Seeking more of a challenge, the LA-native entered the garment industry to learn the construction of clothes.

Her first jobs were at Ella Moss and Splendid, here she gained experience with knits and garment dying. She eventually moved on to working closely for designer Pegah Anvarian and with her she learned the art of draping and the creation of designer knit garments. Next, she landed at Henry Duarte and simultaneously launched a knit division of graphic tees. She later launched the denim and sportswear division of friend Tara Subkoff’s company, Imitation of Christ. Whew!

Tiffany's vast industry experience is evidenced in her knit collection, which includes luxury basics at contemporary price points ($32-$120).
