[Regarding Earth Day 2017] “…I made my contribution with my amazing custom-made palazzo pants purchase from Laura Tanzer. And to answer the question posed earlier in this post, are chic and sustainable mutually exclusive? Why, yes, we discovered today with designers like Laura Tanzer, that it is possible.” -Eugenia May 2017
[Mike’s note: Please check out Eugenia’s post and blog! Not only does Eugenia look fabulous in her Laura Tanzer Palazzo pants, but she also includes some great graphics from her research on eco-fashion and sustainability. Also includes vintage photos of Coco Chanel and Ida Lupino wearing palazo pants! Brava Eugenia! Must see blog!

“I had a truly unique experience which will highlight just how lovely this boutique, the sales staff and Laura, herself are! I had seen the ad in a Tucson magazine and then spoke with our innkeepers so knew that this was EXACTLY my kind of shop. I saw that it was closed on Sunday and “probably Tuesday” (sign on the door) so was there on Monday @ 4 p.m. only to find it CLOSED! AARGH! Not one to be deterred I called and left a somewhat ‘snarky’ message BUT with my name and phone# (I’m not a coward after all!) On Tuesday I decided to check back…just in case and, lo and behold, the door was open! My husband and I went in and I introduced myself a “the snarky woman” and from that point on we all got on famously! Laura, herself was there as well as her most charming sales assistant (with the French name beginning with ‘A’!) The clothes are beyond gorgeous, all made in Tucson! She has fabrics on shelves right in the store! She has a case with a few jewelry designers and they are GOOD…and I should know as I’ve been in the biz for over 20+ years! SO, did I buy? Of course, I settled on 3 tops, a sterling cuff bracelet and a pair of pearl/sterling earrings. Lucky for me (or unlucky?) many pieces were in CA for a trunk show or I probably wouldn’t have gotten away so easily. SO, if you want some truly unique designs and exemplary service this is the place for you!

Everyone loved my outfit last night. I shared who the fabulous local designer is – THANK YOU for reaching out exactly when you did so that I could have something wonderful to wear. And for being patient through the fittings.
The red top is divine. Love it! I had it styled with my E.F. harem pants and obi belts seconds after it came out of the box. The fabric is gorgeous and the red….incredible. I will definitely packing this top for my European Grand tour and cruise.
“Tanzer knows her customer so incredibly well that she can create a piece that goes just beyond the boundaries of fashion comfort. She can push the limits without exceeding them. It may seem too conservative for some. To me, it’s smart. Combine that intuition with a stellar attention to quality and craft and the brand scores very high in my book…” Read more at “The Zero Waste Fashion Designer: Inside the Passion of Laura Tanzer”

“Tanzer put on one of the best emerging shows of the night. The Tucsonan’s style aligns in ideals with Eileen Fisher — simple, clean lines on comfortable silhouettes in cotton, linen, and silk. With a palette of black, blue, and gray and some select textiles with beach and Venetian imagery, the line flowed beautifully…” Read more >>

“Sophistication dominates your thoughts when you think of Laura Tanzer’s collection. It is designed with deliberation and for specific audiences in mind. Expect quality and consistency from this designer. There will never be a question as to what Laura Tanzer can deliver.”
– Film & Fashion Futures, September 2015
“Laura Tanzer had by far the most cohesive show, which she tied together perfectly with the models’ jacket pass-off. Not only did this show the reversible jackets with two looks, it also added some entertainment value to the crowd. I know this took coordination when designing the collection, but I also must give a round of applause to the emerging models who executed the choreography perfectly.”

“Laura Tanzer wowed the audience with her beautiful, classy and cohesive signature line. From the front row, I can almost feel the luxurious fabrics and comfortable fit of her designs, true to her vision of a modern sophisticated woman. Must buy!”
– Chasing Sheila, June 2014
“We really appreciated designer Laura Tanzer’s clean lines and complementary color groupings. She managed to take several different solid colors and create a line that not only has a distinct stamp, but that has a bit of an edgy classiness that is, without a doubt, both fun and practical.”
