T I E N A is for the modern woman who has an eye for design and who is looking for stylish yet timeless pieces. She is looking for clothing that she can wear with many things and in many ways. She is not trendy but is a woman with her own sense of taste and style. T I E N A embodies clothes that pull at your heart strings and evoke the spirit of expressing your most feminine self. Eclectic, Memorable, Daring, Sophisticated, and Long-Lasting Pieces are at the heart of what T I E N A expresses to the world.
Tiena Gwin is the Designer and Creative Director for T I E N A. She is a wife and mother of 2 girls. She is inspired by nature and strong women figures. She is also a huge proponent of dreaming big and utilizing one's talents. T I E N A was launched in the Summer of 2016. Tiena is a past 3-year participant in Memphis Fashion Week which gave her the confidence to further pursue her childhood dream.
After getting laid off from her job while pregnant with her second child, she decided to put all of her energy into her childhood dream and hence emerges T I E N A.
Tiena's professional experience is in Real Estate Development and Project Management. Tiena learned garment construction, pattern making, and draping at the Arkansas School of Fashion in Little Rock, Ark. Tiena was so determined she would drive to Little Rock every week from Memphis for 2 years.
