Tamira Wells, born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland showed an interest in fashion and styling from a young age. She notes her aunt, Cynthia Belinda Wells-Jones as her main influencer as she grew up admiring her clothing company, New Heritage. Playing dress up with her aunt throughout her youth as well as observing her company’s success sparked Tamira’s passion to carve out a similar career for herself.
In 2009, Tamira decided she aspired for more than her hometown had to offer and made the jump to Los Angeles. In LA she met celebrity stylist Jennifer Austin while attending a television show taping and was offered the position as her assistant. Austin shortly developed into her mentor as Tamira continued expanding her own portfolio on both the West and East coast.
Throughout her wardrobe and consulting career, Tamira has styled various celebrities such as Usher, Chaka Khan, Ringo Starr, Colton Haynes, Rami Malek “Top Chef” Michael Voltaggio, Vera Wang and others.
Amongst styling, Tamira works tirelessly to revive New Heritage. She hopes to share the history of the brand and to continue the legacy that her aunt/uncle started. New Heritage is set to relaunch May 2016 this year.
