Applicant: Teddy Tinson’s BeauxBow
Summary: Luscious, oversize bows with the ability to multitask (adorning heads or necks of any gender).
Education and experience: The twentysomething studied up as an atelier designer and wholesaler at Oscar de la Renta and assistant to fashion icon André Leon Talley. He designed his first piece upon realizing he owned three identical Brooks Brothers ties.
Specialties: Anything but seersucker. (See: peacock and pheasant feathers and ombre-dyed velvet styles.) Best-sellers include ikat-embroidered silks and a clear Lucite stunner.
References: Alice in Wonderland, all things Ralph Lauren, The Preppy Handbook.
Additional skills: Brooches are shipped with a stamped brass pin, which doubles as a hat or lapel accent. Custom and small-batch orders aren’t just accepted — they’re encouraged.
Hobbies: Working it.
