Canadian Fashion Designer Tanya Theberge ProfileAlexander McQueen once stated "You never move forward if you play it safe." He could've been talking about the beautiful and talented Toronto fashion designer Tanya Theberge, who has been taking chances all her life. Tanya, a mother of two boys and a local entrepreneur, counts Alexander McQueen as just one of her many inspirations as she works to launch her debut haute couture collection showing at Fashion Art Toronto (F.A.T.) this April.
I first met Tanya at her final dress fitting as a finalist for the Toronto Fashion Incubator's New Labels Sponge Bob Dress competition last May. We hit it off right away. I loved her passion and love for fashion and the attention to detail she gives her designs.

P.s!: Tanya has started a crowdfunding campaign to help pay for materials for her debut collection at F.A.T. with some beautiful perks for contributors. She has also partnered with Hearts of Gold, a charity that helps impoverished women and children in Ecuador, whom she will be donating some of her crowdfunding contributions.
