July 12, 2011 – The Tamara Pogosian Collection launches “Lovebirds” logo and original artwork inspired T-shirt Collection for Men and Women on Thursday, June 30th at 6:00 pm at New York’s elegant rooftop venue, Bar Basque located at 839 6th Avenue, New York City, with a press cocktail reception at 6:00 pm. The Collection is an extension of the brand with the logo representing “Love and Unity”, which organically evolved into a t-shirt collection.
Growing up in Armenia and Russia, Pogosian was taught to appreciate art, music and education. That appreciation is what brought her to New York City in 1992 to study fashion at Parson’s School of Design and FIT. It was at FIT where she realized her love and talent for draping dresses and has continued to create stunning pieces since 2002.
“Every collection I create carries the brand’s aesthetic, filled with love, strength and beauty,” Pogosian stated, “I share my love and vision of beauty through my work.” Black and white t-shirts with variations of the logo and select original hand drawings sending an inspirational love message to all.
