Before starting the company Tiffany graduated from F.I.T and went to Paris to work for Givenchy alongside Alexander McQueen. Mrs. Tuttle moved back to New York and worked as an apparel designer for Rebecca Taylor. After designing the shoes for Rebecca Taylor’s runway show Tiffany changed her focus to accessories and studied footwear design and patternmaking at Ars Sutoria.
