Tammy Kane, CEO & Creative Adviser of Christopher Kane
Background: I have a degree in fashion design management and have worked in retail, as an art therapist, and in a design and textile studio.
Typical day: Production, accounts, shipping, and sales, then collaborating with Christopher on his collections. The most productive time is when everyone leaves—I usually work until 9 p.m.
Proudest accomplishment: To have increased sales and staff in the economic downturn.
Designer’s quirk: Christopher draws and draws—not the worst problem, but it does leave me with the job of editing.
Other favorite labels: Versus, Versace, Miu Miu, Comme des Garçons, Balenciaga, Givenchy, Jil Sander, Céline. Current obsession: Cash flow. I never stop thinking about how I can improve it.
