Winner of the Emerging Designer Competition at Charleston Fashion Week, Tygerian Burke was dubbed a young Marc Jacobs and compared to Gucci by Fern Mallis, creator of New York Fashion Week.

In Burke’s collection, you are the best version of yourself, and she illustrated it with every sequined and embroidered design she sent down the runway. Her collection is unified with the cultural moment of today, feeling right at home in the era of me too and times up.

“I want my designs to enhance the woman, not the woman to enhance my designs,” explains Burke. “Each piece has intricate details meant to transform body language and lift you to your best you. It’s about style and personality, not just fashion!”
