Today it's my pleasure to introduce Tamara and her line of fabulous hand-painted scarves - the Baydian Collection.
Tell us About Yourself, Who is Tamara?
My name is Tamara Holder and I am the sole owner and designer of Baydian. I'm 23 years old and from the beautiful island of Barbados. In addition to running Baydian , I am also pursuing my MBA and I work as a Graduate Assistant at a local university in Circleville, OH.Recently, I began the Baydian Girl blog to share how I wear my scarves on the everyday runway. The goal behind the blog is to help others increase the versatility of their wardrobe with Baydian scarves. The idea is that everyone is unable to buy numerous statement pieces, especially if they're on a tight budget. However, if you have 2 or 3 statement pieces, you can increase the versatility of your wardrobe and I think adding scarves to your wardrobe is the perfect way to do that!
Tell us about your Company Baydian
It's a fashion company that I began in January 2014 that specializes in hand-painted scarves that add color and style to our clients' wardrobes. Its inspired by my Caribbean heritage but the products are statements since each scarf has a story. You can see each story in our lookbook here: http://www.
What are some of your favorite trends/pieces that you'll be wearing this Fall?
This Fall, I'm so excited to wear full midi skirts, leather bottoms (whether it's a skater skirt or a pair of leggings), combat boots (my absolute favorite shoe!), pullover sweaters, hats (beanies and fedoras), and of course scarves! My favorite fall trend this season is the belted scarf made popular by Burberry during their Fall 2014 runway show!
Where do you get fashion inspiration?
I get my fashion inspiration from Fashion magazines like InStyle, Vogue and Harper's Bazaar. I also have a fashion inspiration wall in my bedroom that I see every morning I wake up (picture attached). Besides that, I frequent Pinterest and I'm mostly inspired by color combinations.
