https://www.instagram.com/telshaanderson/We recently spoke with Telsha Anderson-Boone, the founder of luxury boutique T.A. in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District, a concept store and e-commerce site that caters to the New York community.
It was her interest in entrepreneurship and desire to share the dialogue surrounding Black ownership that led her to open the store at 27 years old during the summer of 2020. It is described by W Magazine as ”a cool-kid shopping destination with aesthetics that approach Dover Street Market-levels of artistry.” Telsha highlights both established labels and up-and-coming names in the industry. She finds beauty in discovery and sharing her finds with sartorial lovers.

Hawksmoor OR HiLot, Manhatta, Orchard Townhouse

My Mom, Dad, Sister, Brother, and Husband — there's nothing better than surrounding yourself with family after a long week or month.
