Taryn Scher, president and founder of TK PR, has always been driven by a burning desire to excel in everything she does. After just six months as an executive assistant and showroom manager at Blanc de Chine, Taryn was promoted to in-house pr and marketing manager. After tackling New York, Taryn relocated to South Carolina and decided to start her own public relations company, TK PR. Within no time, TK PR enlisted clients from coast to coast in the “luxury lifestyle”category. The majority of Taryn’s wardrobe has been built thanks to clients in the fashion industry, however all 200 pairs of shoes have been purchased on her own since she has yet to rep a shoe line.. Check out this week’s self made Shoe Queen below…
FG: Who designed your stiletto you submitted and where did you purchase them?
TK: Christian Louboutin; Barney’s New York
FG: Is there a story behind why you purchased them?
TK: This is the only pair of shoes I’ve ever purchased that I didn’t REALLY want. I was at the after-Christmas Barney’s shoe sale with my best friend, and we were in heaven, snapping up pairs by the dozen. You-name-it designers all 60% off, you can imagine the elbow-to-elbow walls of women. We gathered all the styles we wanted to try on and took our place on a couch. As I was trying on a pair of Dries Van Noten black pumps (which I also bought) I saw a woman pick up the red Louboutins from my pile of “try-ons”. I walked over to her to tell her that it was my pile and not a free-for-all and she asked me if she could try them on. Caught a bit off guard, I said, “You can try them, but I’m buying them.” She gazed longingly at the shoes as she tried them on, and I walked over to her and said, “Can I have them back now please, I’m buying them.” Very long story short, the clerk had to get involved and give back the shoes to their I-saw-them-first rightful owner (me) and even though I’d selected 2 other pairs that I truly wanted, I bought these on principal alone. Don’t mess with me and my shoes.
