Tash Hussey Designs

Profile

Tasha Hussey felt the connection to the art of transforming fabric into fashion even as a child. “I made my first piece of clothing, a halter top, when I was five, recalls the Jamaican-born designer, who went on to earn a degree in fashion design and apprentice under renowned Savile Row couturier Edmund Couffe.

In 2004 Tasha moved to Atlanta and launched her eponymous label, drawing on her training in the traditional disciplines. Quickly recognized for her skilled constructions, she was commissioned work in costume design for television and print. Tasha’s designs have been featured on music videos, including reggae artist Damian Marley, R&B sensation, Donnell Jones and hip hop singers Foxy Brown, Eddie Grant and Timbaland. In 2004, she designed costumes for Usher’s backup dancers for the opening performance of MTV’s Music VideoAwards, which lead to commercial work on leading brands including “Guinness”.

Wanting to stay true to her roots of making clothing in timeless cuts that transcend trends, Tasha launched seasonal collections at Beehive Co-op, becoming one of the boutique’s best-selling clothing labels and eventually recognized by Lucky magazine.

This same passion and production quality is now focused on her newest design endeavor, jewelry. Tasha’s eye for construction and detail along with her commitment to environmentally friendly consumerism has found purchase in a new line crafted of vintage costume jewelry, buttons and materials.
