In 1997, Amy moved to Hong Kong with her husband. It was there that she decided to pursue her dream of starting her own fashion label.
“I’m crazy for prints and color in unexpected combinations. And I love luxury with an absolute ease about it – simple but utterly modern.” Amy’s passion for chic and easy fashions became the foundation on which Tibi was launched.
Early on, Amy partnered with another American living abroad, Octavia Hyland (her grandmother’s name was Tibi). Traveling frequently to the Indonesian island of Java, they worked closely with small textile printers to develop unique prints in vivid colors.
“I love fashion. I love beautiful things that are well made, with rich and luxurious fabrics. I’m passionate about art, music, modern architecture, and all things chic.
