Inspired by the dazzling discos of 1970s New York City, Elie Tahari began to create flirty dance dresses and his label was born. Elie was one of the first designers to open boutique on Madison Avenue in 1974. Parlaying his keen ability to predict what a woman wants from fashion before she even knows it, he turned his attentions in the 80’s to the tailored suit– a design effort that redefined a decade. The company has since then launched a full menswear line, jewelry and accessories, and a luxury shoe and bag collection. Today, Elie Tahari continues to delight women with styles inspired by his belief that “clothing should be quieter than the woman so that her true beauty can shine through.” View his past collections here: http://www.style.com/fashionshows/review/S2013MEN-ETAHARI
