LAS VEGAS, Aug. 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tatyana Designs, Inc. (the "Company") (OTC Pink:TATD), a growing retailer specializing in contemporary designs inspired by the golden age of fashion, today announced the opening of its Toronto boutique. Located near the intersection of Queen Street West and Spadina, the fashion forward boutique occupies one of the most iconic and well-trafficked locations in the world.
"The 'Queen St. West' area is a cultural nexus known for its restaurants, clubs and eclectic mix of forward looking, trend setting designer boutiques," notes Tatyana Khomyakova – co-CEO and chief designer of the brand. "The vibrant arts and fashion culture attracts artists, celebrities, students and others by the thousands. 'Queen Street' has become synonymous with the words 'trendy', 'hip', and 'cool'. Perfect for the Tatyana brand!"
"Our newest Tatyana boutique is situated in the heart of Toronto," notes Tatyana Designs co-CEO Jan Glaser. "We continue to be gratified by the enthusiastic acceptance of Tatyana's designs by women from all walks of life. This is especially true as we have an enormous Canadian following with thousands wearing our dresses representing a disproportionate percentage of our customers. Now we have the opportunity to honor their patronage with our first Canadian outlet in an amazing location."
One unique feature of the Toronto store is that the Company has leased the entire 3,000 square foot building for ten years. "The ground floor is our boutique," noted Glaser, "but we have fully improved space for three stories on top which we intend to use for additional services that integrate with the community's needs. We are confident that the new Toronto location will track the success of our other seventeen company-owned outlets all located in prime 'street' or upscale mall locations."
Since the debut of their "retro elegance" line in 2007 Tatyana Designs, Inc. has continued to grow and flourish. The company operates 20 company owned stores in 12 states and now the Toronto store. Moreover, with a newly remodeled online store (www.tatyana.com) anyone from around the world can embrace their inner pin up.
Upon transitioning to a publicly traded company in August of 2012, TATD has witnessed its co-CEO and designer, Tatyana, develop the retro elegance of the "Tatyana" line of dresses and separates, "Taty" children's clothing and most recently "Archie's" men's wear specifically designed as "Upscale rockabilly and retro themed" clothing for guys. "Think James Bond by the pool, circa 1960," comments Tatyana. "We'll be offering elegant wool and gabardine slacks, shirts, jeans and shoes – all with the classic 1950s fit and style – but with modern fabrics and accoutrements."
The women's TATD lines are comprised of unique and flattering styles that lend a hand to ladies of all shapes and sizes helping them to embrace their beauty. Tatyana creates a retro look for the modern woman which is both sexy and modest. Sizes run from 0-18 and all styles are designed to accentuate a true hour-glass figure. Women of all ages love the collection because they are playful and fun, yet alluring and mysterious.
Having been born in a remote Russian village and raised by a single mother, Tatyana studied hard and graduated from Russia's University of Culture with degrees in both theater and fashion. The aspiring fashion aficionado began her career at the House of Fashion in St. Petersburg, Russia. After a time as a high fashion model in Europe, Tatyana continued her modeling career upon relocating to the United States, before venturing into the establishing her now iconic line of clothing. Tatyana has created one of the most successful and recognizable retro clothing lines available to women (and men) worldwide.
