Multitasking is now second nature to Tamia Carey Francis. Mother to two young girls, she's also a fashion designer of her eponymous label, co-founder of the popular LiveStush social media site, and co-principal of a six-year old marketing company that is a growing extension of Stush. Formerly known as Posh, Tamia decided to switch her line's name to Tamia Carey Collection, because according to her, the collection has become more personal, as she produces what she wants for a sexy woman, and as such, a name change was in order.
Having served as a stylist and personal shopper for a select clientele in Jamaica and abroad for many years, Tamia returned to Jamaica in 2010, launching her clothing and accessories line. From stylish prints to vibrant patterns, shades of darkness to bold and daring colour. If you are looking for high fashion suitable for the everyday woman, then look no further: the Tamia Carey Collection is here to the rescue.
Targeting the fashion-forward curvy woman in carrying sizes six to 3XL, The Tamia Carey Collection's dresses, tops and bags are all one-of-a-kind because they are all designed by her and sewn right here in Jamaica.
Business, since then, has been very receptive, and Carey noted, "People invite friends for the next visit and we get countless referrals. Women like the individual experience and attention they get. They also love the fabrics and having a piece that's one-of-a-kind, just as unique as they are."
All the pieces designed and sewn in-store."I only make one of any dress and style. Our maxi dresses always fly off the rack. It's a classic style that lends itself to so many occasions while still allowing for comfort. You can never have too many!" Carey remarked.
"I was inspired by my business partner of LiveStush, Fern Elise, who expressed concern in not being able to find the latest for the curvy and voluptuous, so I decided to fill that fashionable gap, adding a touch of sophisticated chic in the mix," she revealed.
