Barbara Tfank launched her eponymous label in 2001, forging new opulence with a line of beautiful brocade cocktail coats and colorful, classically-shaped dresses. Cut individually and sewn by custom-trained seamstresses, her clothes are the antithesis of mass-manufactured product, her taste and meticulous attention to detail giving each piece artistic appeal. Her clients admire her craftsmanship and consistent fit, while the allure her luxurious textiles attracts the true connoisseur.
Tfank’s collections are presented twice yearly at NY Fashion Week and featured in Vogue.com, WWD, NY Magazine, and others.
Tfank resides in West Hollywood, California with her husband Peter Markham, who heads up the MFA Directing Discipline at The American Film Institute Conservatory. Their historic West Hollywood home was featured in Elle Decor. Barbara received a BA from Skidmore College and an MA from Stanford.
