Tabitha Somerset Webb - Background
Formerly an advertising executive (for six years), Tabitha decided to pursue a career in fashion in 2003. Having searched, unsuccessfully, for a "slouchy, easy, urban" handbag that she loved, Tabitha spotted a gap in the market and decided to design her own handbag and accessories label Tabitha.
Tabitha says her lack of formal design qualifications are an advantage: "I am lucky that I come from a more commercial point of view in that I will think: ‘will this be what women will actually want and be able to use’? If I went to design college I might not have thought that way," she told the Irish World in 2010.
