Tabitha Simmons was born and raised in England. She began her career into fashion at 14, having worked at a shoe store in the UK after graduation with honors from Kingston University. Her interest quickly became focused on fashion styling, which allowed her to combine her personal style with an academic design background. In 2009, she launched her eponymous luxury footwear label, and has since been globally recognized, having won a British Fashion Award, CFDA Swarovski Award for Accessory Design, CFDA Accessory Designer of the Year Award, and many more. The Tabitha Simmons collection is defined by the use of exquisite materials and the finest leathers and suede. Couture craftsmanship by master cobblers in Italy is exhibited in delicate detailing and embroidery, and is inspired by her British roots and worldwide travels.
