In anticipation of Tyler Bailey’s Shoe and Fashion Show in Mobile on November 11, 2012, I had to take a moment to find out what’s in the next chapter for the designer, who is quickly rising as a recognizable name among socialites and celebrities. Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Mr. Bailey is no stranger to progression and forward thinking when it comes to fashion and business. I’m elated to be the official host for the event, and only hope that I can contribute to his movement.
First and foremost, Hartzog-Bagsby Consulting is thrilled to have the opportunity to work with you! From where do you draw inspiration when you’re creating your designs?
I draw inspiration from a number of things. My worldly travels over the past 13 years; Different architecture and room decor; different personalities of women that I meet; just a number of things!
I recently saw some Tyler Bailey Design Studio design images, including a studded handbag. What are your plans for line expansion?
Our plans for line expansion have started with securing a relationship with an Italian manufacture. To insure the best quality of our products. The next plan is the launching of our Tyler Bailey showroom in Atlanta’s upcoming luxury shopping district. And lastly we have been getting a great response from major luxury store buyers. So securing those deals are also in our plans of expansion as well.
Some influential socialites have worn Tyler Bailey Shoes within the last year. What’s been your most successful marketing tactic to gain recognition by the right people?
Our most successful marketing tactic has been word of mouth. You would not believe the list of “A list” celebrities that are waiting on the official Tyler Bailey collection just by word of mouth. Once we launch, you will start seeing our shoes appearing on some of your favorite T.V shows, high profile red carpets, and up coming movies that we have been confirmed for.
What made you decide to do a show in Mobile? Do you anticipate any other events within the next six months, in the Southeast or elsewhere?
I decided to do a show in Mobile, because it is my hometown. I wanted to inspire the other inspiring designers. As well as the inspiring models, stylist, MUA, or anyone with a dream, no matter what is! I also wanted to do something positive there. In which we are giving back to the Penelope House. To support the efforts of ending violence against women and children. Something that I am very passionate about! We have a host of events that we will be involved with.

What can we expect next from Tyler Bailey Design Studio?
What you can expect next from Tyler Bailey is the official launching and global expansion of the brand. A brand that started with the spark of a dream, fueled by faith, and driven by the grace if God!
