Tamara Akcay moved to London from Paris. She studied marketing at Paris IX, followed by two fashion certificates at Esmod and Studio Bercot and proceeded to work in ready-to-wear, both in London and Los Angeles. Following those experiences and with encouragements from friends and family, she used her creativity to launch an eponymous jewellery line, after earning a certificate at the HBJO also known as “Ecole de la rue du Louvre” in Paris.
In her free time, Tamara enjoyed immersing herself into arts and culture, where she would find inspiration for her collections.
Grateful to have had the chance to explore both fashion and jewelry making, opportunities led her to explore words and literature, as she delved into creative arts writing. She now works as an arts writer for online and printed publications, using her experience as a creator to approach arts with imagination and sensitivity.
