Interior designer Sue Firestone sashays into fashion with the launch of the Tamsen label. As the head of her namesake firm, she's best known for luxurious hospitality interiors—think New York's Trump International Hotel & Tower. Her clothing emits a similarly moneyed aura.
Combining the artwork of her father-in-law, Robert Firestone, with the experience of fashion designer Mimi Wolfe, the vibrantly colored silk and chiffon dresses, skirts, tops, and scarves evoke a lifestyle of midnight cruises and champagne at dawn. In fact, the collection is named after the Firestone family yacht, where the line was officially launched during New York's fashion week last month.
