DP: When did you start the T. Tandon line and tell me how it all began.
TT: I started in Spring 2008. I have always wanted to have my own line, knew I would do it, since I was young. But, the question was when. So, one day, when I got really fed up working late nights for a fashion company, I decided to quit and do all that hard work for my own line. I packed up my bags, and flew to India, where I knew some manufacturers to start sampling for my first collection. I had no particular business plan, or anything, I wanted to just do it. I started basically with no idea of what I was really doing, and how, who my target audience is, my business model, nothing! I just went right into it. And than refined it every year to what it is now.
Currently starring on Lifetime’s latest reality series "Russian Dolls," Svetlana Rakhman displays the true essence of Russian heritage; living a life that is defined by her family values, and a strong work ethic.
Now that the season has finished filming, Svetlana has been spending her downtime working on an exciting new Russian inspired jewelry line, RUSSIAN DOLLS by Svetlana.
This collection brings a new meaning to the word trend. Combining her passion for Russian history and jewelry, the longtime business-woman turned designer has created a modern interpretation of the Russian nesting doll, that can be worn by any generation. A Russian Dolls by Svetlana set consists of a trio of nested dolls and a matching silver chain. This versatile collection comes as a trio, so you have the option to wear the pendants all together, or separately on the silver chain. Accessories most definitely make any look ‘pop’ and add special interest to our ensembles that allow us to stand-out from the crowd. Russian Dolls by Sveltana is a wonderful jewelry collection that is just as unique as it is beautiful. All of the pieces are handmade, sterling silver, with sparkling diamond eyes and a gorgeous gem-stone belly. A spectacular locket for you to cherish and is unlike any other jewelry locket I have ever seen. Each design is precious and truly special. Sveta, Casha, & baby Natasha represent a signature of nested trio locket dolls, on a matching silver chain. These can be worn as a nested trio or separately.
Bet you didn't even know they were dating! Or you probably heard about it, but deemed it too unbelievable so you brushed it off as a silly little rumor.
It's true! Actress Amber Tamblyn, 28, and comedian David Cross, 47, are tying the knot, Life & Style magazine has confirmed today. "They've been engaged for weeks," sources claim. At least SOME people in good old Hollywood know how to keep marriage details private. Yes, Kim Kardashian, that was for you.
This marks down to be the second marriage of the four leading ladies in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. America went first a couple of months ago, now Amber...perhaps Blake Lively would like to be bride number three with A-lister beau Leonardo DiCaprio?
Lindsay Lohan is violating probation terms, again, after a dirty urine test on June 13 shows she hasn't changed her partying ways; she may be serving real jail time today after the hearing. This morning La Lohan is awaiting a court hearing in Los Angeles, where she will be seated in front of the same judge who sentenced her to 120 days in jail, after pleading guilty to larceny charges on a necklace. The actress has numerous probation violations already, and two DUI convictions under her belt; she has recently been under house arrest, and partying on her Venice, C.A. rooftop.
Kim and boyfriend Kris Humphries have only been dating for a few months but the Keeping up with the Kardashians star has already wedding on her mind...
In an interview given to Life & Style, the 30-year-old beauty says, "I can't wait to get married. I've found my wedding dress -- I mean, I already know what my gown is going to look like. I've thought about it all for so long. What woman hasn't thought about her wedding since she was a little girl?"
She was spotted earlier this week talking to friend Brittany Gastineau about the engagement ring of her dream, "I want Lorraine to design me a big diamond ring." Lorraine Schwartz is a jewelry designer and close friend to Kim.
The 42-year-old singer is covering the new Life & Style Magazine. Miss Carey happily accepted to show off her very big baby bump to the world...
In the interview she gave to the magazine, she says, “I was feeling very vulnerable about taking pictures at all right now, but then I didn’t want to miss this opportunity to document this once-in-a-lifetime experience. My ultimate goal was to share this incredibly personal moment with my true fans.”
She added, “The babies were kicking almost the entire time; it was unbelievable. Especially the girl — clearly she’s a diva in training! We didn’t start shooting until 1:30 a.m. because I was in the hospital from the night before until the day of the shoot with contractions five minutes apart!”
After Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal spent Saturday night flirting backstage at the taping for Saturday Night Live, they decided to continue the fun with an encore on Sunday. Life and Style reports that the two strolled hand in hand through Brooklyn's Park Slope area and then settled down for a quiet lunch date with Swift's BFF Emma Stone. Stone was the host of SNL's last episode.
Some suggest this could be a possible PR stunt because of their nine year age difference. Though with Gyllenhaal's publicist staying silent, it may be the beginning of the next celebrity couple!
Because 13 surgeries just weren't enough, reports that Heidi Montag has already scheduled her next breast enlargement have hit.
Spencer Pratt seems to imply that though unintentional, Ryan Seacrest is somewhat to blame for the decision, but we all know it's just the addiction of a plastic surgery junkie. Heidi wants the work done within the next two months and is considering having the procedure done in Europe.
"I try to stop her," Spencer tells Life & Style. "She wants her doctor to come over once a week to plump up her lips. I keep telling her that they're big enough and that she doesn't need it."
