Associate Professor of Fashion Studies, School of Fashion
Born in Bucharest, Romania, Tamara Albu's journey to the fashion world had begun with her studies in Decorative Arts at Academy of Fine Arts in Bucharest, Romania. She earned her M.F.A. in Fashion Design and Illustration in 1976. In 1980, after several years working as a fashion designer and illustrator, she decided to come to New York. While her love for designing and painting was burning strong, Tamara's interests took an additional dimension soon: teaching paired with her professional activity. Tamara lives and works in New York City. While active as an artist, exhibiting and publishing her art work, she is contributing to Fashion Companies such as Hue, Christian Dior NY, Donna Karan and DKNY, Calvin Klein Hosiery, Jay Godfrey, Hanes Hosiery and Adidas.
