Rebecca Taylor's sexy, kittenish clothing has inspired legions of loyal customers to indulge their feminine wiles. The native New Zealander moved to New York after graduating from the Wellington School of Design. While working for a leading Seventh Avenue designer, Rebecca Taylor met her future business partner Elizabeth Bugdaycay, who encouraged Rebecca Taylor to launch her own collection. Bugdaycay balanced out Rebecca Taylor's creative skills with her background in economics and her business-minded approach. Together they forged an unstoppable team. With only five years under their belts, the two women now have one of the most sought after collections in the industry.
Feminine edgy, yet approachable designs have put their collection on the fashion map, garnering major editorial coverage as well as a nod from the Council of Fashion Designers of America, who nominated Rebecca Taylor for the prestigious Perry Ellis Young Designer Award in 2000. Rebecca Taylor's creativity and energy pours into her collections with inspirational references ranging from vintage mod books from the '60's and '70's to the worlds of music, art and entertainment. With an almost obsessive eye to detail and unconventional color sense, Rebecca Taylor's clothing flatters and enhances the women who wear them. Seasons after season, the collection surprises customers with perfect prints, great knits, and flirty dresses, which fit into any modern woman's closet.
Celebrities such as Cameron Diaz, Ashley Judd, Robin Tunney, Julia Stiles, Anna Paquin, Minnie Driver, Christina Applegate and Keri Russell are among the loyal fans that keep coming back for more Rebecca Taylor. With Rebecca Taylor stores across Japan including a flagship store in Aoyama, Tokyo and the Rebecca Taylor Collection retailing in all major department stores and top specialty boutiques across the country, Rebecca Taylor and Bugdaycay will continue to keep their customers clothed from head to foot in Rebecca Taylor.
