TATJANA PESKO - BIOGRAPHY
Tatjana Pesko is Founder and Creative Director of her namesake brand - Tatjana Anika, which is now entering its tenth year in business. Tatjana’s love of fashion and travel combined encouraged her to create the label in 2008, with its debut collection premiering in 2009. After much success as a beachwear brand, Tatjana took a short hiatus from designing in the mid 2010’s to research and revitalise the brand into a modern loungewear label, consisting of both ready-to-wear and swimwear product. Tatjana Anika relaunched in 2018 with its high summer collection, taking a day-to-night approach to a woman’s vacation wardrobe.
Pesko attended Aiglon Boarding School in Switzerland before embarking on a degree course at Emerson, majoring in Theatre and Communications studies. Post Grad, Tatjana took courses in both French and Interior Design at La Sorbonne in Paris before founding Tatjana Anika in London. The business is still based out of London, with its studio and showroom in Fulham, West London.
Pesko’s vision for the brand is evolving, as global travel becomes evermore the norm, Pesko noticed a niche in the swimwear market that she had be actively participating in for over eight years. Tatjana Anika now caters to the modern woman, offering collections that can be worn both home and away, in and out of the sea and day-to-night. Each piece is designed with a dual identity, from swimsuits that double up as evening wear body’s, or teamed with jeans whilst day-tripping, to chic silk dresses, which can be worn in the city on hot summer days but also as beach cover-ups.
Pesko’s design ethos is to create product, which showcases beauty in simplicity. The wearable, timeless silhouettes of each collection are brought to life by the beautiful prints which emblazon them.
