Scroll down to see celebrities wearing clothing, dresses, and shoes by Tibi, an American fashion company based in New York City. Still an independently owned brand, it was founded by Georgia-born Amy Smilovic in 1997.

What does Tibi mean?

According to an October 2017 interview published in Hong Kong Tatler, the fashion line is named after Amy Smilovic’s grandmother Tibi.

“Shortly after moving to Hong Kong, I met a woman who was from New York and she was engaged to a guy, who by total coincidence I went to the University of Georgia with. She and I started a line together named after her grandmother Tibi but six months after living in HK she decided to move back to the US and I kept the name, hired her sister to work for me for four years and the rest is history.”

A former advertising executive with no formal training in fashion, in September 2006 she opened the first Tibi retail store at 120 Wooster Street in SoHo in New York City.

The 2,200 square foot boutique was designed by Steve Blatz and Antonio Saracino.

In addition to Tibi’s official website, you can purchase Tibi dresses, sweaters, and shoes at Shopbop, Farfetch, and Nordstrom.
