Our Story

Bold. Beautiful. You.

Tinamaria is an east coast fashion design studio that specializes in luxury shoes and resort wear for the well-traveled woman.

All our products are infused with a sense of beauty, playfulness, adventure, sensuality, creativity and versatility. We believe that women deserve a resort wear brand that gives them a richer palette of options and lets them look and feel their best in any situation, whether lounging poolside, sipping cocktails, dining under the stars or dancing the night away.
 
With a nod to the designer’s Italian heritage, Tinamaria’s shoe collections are Italian-made and demonstrate the exquisite quality and craftsmanship that Italy’s artisanal shoemakers are famous for.
 
About the Designer
Tinamaria is a natural artist. She draws inspiration for her design practice from fine art, nature and the world of cutting-edge fashion design.
 
Born in New Jersey, Tinamaria learned to draw at the age of four. Her father was her first teacher and mentor, using art as a method to improve a vision impairment she was born with. Inspired by Dorothy’s red ruby slippers in The Wizard of Oz, Tinamaria set her sights on becoming a shoe designer when she was still just a kid.
 
In 2010, having had a fulfilling 30-year career as a colorist in the beauty industry, Tinamaria set out to make her lifelong dream a reality. She studied bespoke shoe design with the famous shoe artist and teacher Llorraine Neithardt in New York City, and later traveled to Italy to soak up everything she could about the Italian shoe market and artisanal shoe design and construction practices.

When she was ready to launch her own business, Tinamaria’s love for travel, and especially for tropical islands, inspired her to focus her vision on designing resort-style shoes, apparel and accessories. Today, her boutique fashion design studio is thriving, and not just because the collections are gorgeous. Every single product is full of life and energy, and is designed to inspire women to discover their own unique sense of style and adventure.
