Designer : Tamara Bavdek
After a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design in 2007, Montreal designer Tamara Bavdek needed a change. A big one.
So after nearly 20 years of long hair, she decided to chop it off into an unconventional retro bowl cut. Knowing that a touch of femininity would be lost together with her long locks, she turned to the 1960s for inspiration. Extra large statement jewelry and bold make-up seemed to do the trick, and she soon realized that lace is to textiles what gold is to metals and diamonds to rocks, and that nothing beats lightweight statement jewelry!
Today, the hair has grown again but the passion for statement pieces never fades. Founded in Montreal in late 2008, This Ilk is now distributed in over 30 boutiques in Canada, the USA and around the world.
