We had the good fortune of connecting with Tiffany Hall and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tiffany, any advice for those thinking about whether to keep going or to give up?
To Know whether you should keep going or to give up can be a big decision in life. When there is a problem or a little bump in the road it can sometimes discourage you and make you want to just give up , but it’s life everything will not be perfect. Being able to overcome and learn from situations that may have stopped you in the process of getting to where you want to be is what makes you stronger. Knowing that you can push through and work harder than you did before. You can’t just stop there you have to want it for yourself and that’s with anything school, being an entrepreneur, working at a facility , etc. There will always be something trying to stop you trying to make you have to decide whether to keep going or to give up and you just have to just think to yourself if this what I want to do I won’t let anything get in the way of that.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Being in the fashion industry itself is very competitive. My art / creativity is what sets me apart from others. Attending Moore College of Art & Design in Philadelphia for fashion design has taught me a lot about myself and what gotten me where I am today professionally. Being able to travel to 3 different countries studying abroad also plays a part as well. Studying abroad with my college professors and classmates gave me a better viewpoint in life and made me want to take everything a step further. Graduating and working on my clothing line business was not easy at all. It comes with a lot when trying to focus on creating collections and drawings for fashion shows at school then working on creating multiple ideas for a brand at the same time. Managing both was not easy but I worked and pushed through. My professors at school saw that I had a eye for what I did and came up with , but at one point I did not see it for myself so that made it harder to accomplish what I wanted to do. Overtime I realized that I am great and will be great at what I do and I can’t second guess myself if this is what I want to make a career out of. I took everything my professors told me and put it towards my remaining years at school and towards my business. I want the world to know that I am a very passionate about what I do , art and designing is something I love / live for. Myself , brand , and story will be global one day.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We would spend the day of the days DC. For brunch to a place called Mi Casa. Then for a little fun during the day we’ll go to a museum in the fashion district “inside the wardrobe”. Go do a little shopping and definitely go to Georgetown Cupcake their cupcakes are the best. Following a great lunch at HookXHall with nice outdoor seating great view. Ending our night off with a great Dinner and Hookah at Victory Lounge. My friends and family are very exciting people to me I’ll never pass up a day with hanging out with them.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My mother is the person that made me the person I am today. Watching and learning from her made me want to go harder. While she is a business owner herself a hair stylist specifically. My mother always kept me busy while fashion wasn’t the only thing that I love and have a passion for , dancing was my first love becoming a professional dancer / ballerina. Overtime I leaned more towards fashion, but she always supported me and was there every step of the way when I decided to study fashion for my 4 year college career. My mother deserves the credit for everything and I appreciate her for everything she has done it’s my turn to do big things for her and make her proud.
