Kourtney Kardashian and Julia Fox are complete fans of this young designer
Tara Hakin, 26, the designer who conquered Julia Fox, Jorja Smith or Kourtney Kardashian, tells us about her vision
and her future in the industry.
“I contacted Julia Fox’s team to create a look especially for her,” says Tara Hakin, the Irish designer, talking about
the outfit inspired by a manicure designed for the Uncut Gems star last month. “It was a first for me. The way she
appropriates contemporary pop culture is super interesting.”
“My motivation and desire to create is ingrained in me; I can’t see myself doing anything else and I wasn’t good at
anything else” – Tara Hakin

Long before Tara Hakin was dressing fashion’s hottest stars in her inimitably stylish designs, including Paloma Elsesser,
Jorja Smith, Iris Law and Kourtney Kardashian, among others, that some of the famous faces spotted wearing items from
her eponymous line in 2022, the 26-year-old University of Brighton graduate knew that her skill and perseverance would
lead her in the right direction. “My motivation and desire to create is ingrained in me; I can’t see myself doing
anything else and I wasn’t good at anything else because my mind was always on something else.

Like many designers during the pandemic, Tara Hakin, who greeted us from Donaghadee, a small town just outside Belfast,
wondered what she could bring to the fashion industry, a market that, as we know, is saturated and where new designers
never end to surprise us. “I felt lost before the pandemic, and it showed,” she recalls. Turns out her daring, sculptural
clothes were exactly the breath of fresh air the fashion industry needed.
Seductive, sensual and versatile
Tara Hakin’s innovative designs are seductive, sensual and versatile. Designs range from striking asymmetrical body-con
dresses adorned with abstract images of car crashes, to low-rise slice pants that fall to the hips, to wet-look lycra
swimsuits adorned with consistently unique iconography.
“For me, fashion is about creating armor for the wearer.” – Tara Hakin
The starting point for Tara Hakin’s design is playing with shapes in the confines of her East London studio.
“I usually combine my research with 3D experiments on mannequins. Draping is my favorite part of the process
because I love the tactile element. For me, fashion is about creating armor for the wearer. I want my pieces
to become an extension of the wearer,” she emphasizes. renaperke1987 Courtesy of Tara Hakin
A promising future
Tara Hakin’s talents are not limited to the walls of her studio. You’ve probably spotted her costume designs in
the music videos for Celeste and Rosalía. “If I’m working on an outfit for a music video, film or performance,
I can be more unconventional.” What’s in store for Tara Hakin this year? “It’s great to see a wide range of people
wearing my clothes, differing in age and body type; I feel proud to know that I can offer something to everyone.
My main goals are to have a my wholesale inventory and send my pieces to the runways.”
