Tara Subkoff: Back and Better Than Ever


Tara Subkoff is thankfully doing much better these days. After surviving a brain tumor she contracted last year, she is back designing for her label Imitation of Christ.

In this month's Harper's Bazaar, Subkoff talks about the incident involving her health and insurance at the time, her new views on life, and what she plans to bring to the resuscitated IOC brand.

"I loved Imitation of Christ. For a long time, it was my life, and it was incredible, and I was so grateful for the opportunities it provided, " Subkoff explained about the label. "But there was a massive amount of confusion about its original incarnation. The name got so big, and it appeared to be such a giant success, but like most things that are artistic and creative and amazing, it was never this financial powerhouse. It was an art project."

She also talked about what she plans to bring to the table for Imitation of Christ this time around: "While I've been recovering, I've decided to bring back IOC in its most basic incarnation: easy-to-wear staples with an edge. I'm calling this line just "Imitation." I'm inspired by Coco Chanel and her use of jersey. I'd like to do that with Imitation. I want something as effortless as a T-shirt, but in dress, trench, and jacket shapes."
