Clare Tattersall: Founder, CEO
Fashion insider and brand curator, Clare Tattersall channels her passion for fashion into finding outstanding emerging designers and bringing their ideas to market. With her inside knowledge of NYC's garment district and a knack for bringing together the most talented people, Clare is spearheading ThunderLily NYC, a virtual fashion incubator – creating cutting edge software for designers and providing stylish women with access to custom made fashion from the most innovative designers of the future.
ThunderLily was founded in 2009 with a mission to Set Fashion Free. From sketch to market – we launch emerging designers, with our fashion design software and partnership with Columbia University we offer the most cutting edge technology for designing and producing samples in the virtual space.
Who we are is so much less important than who YOU are.
YOU have stepped off the beaten path of the established fashion industry. You like to be INVOLVED in fashion. You want to be involved, you can see that by being independent you can be more CREATIVE, you want to offer your creativity to discerning shoppers, you want to be a STYLE LEADER, an ENTREPRENEUR, to SHARE, CREATE, BUILD.
We want to build a space where your PASSION can come to LIFE, where designers are in charge of pushing their VISIONS to market, where FASHION LOVERS can be involved in the fashion creation from the early workshop days to the final product. We believe that by opening the doors to everyone a better industry will emerge. It's a lot for a small company but nothing that we cannot build together as a community so we are reaching out for your next move.
