Taylor Tomasi Hill Talks Consulting On (Not Designing!) Sigerson Morrison's Fall Collection

Taylor Tomasi Hill (or TTH as she's come to be known) is one of those fashion girls who seems to be doing a million things at once: As the artistic director at Moda Operandi, she is responsible for the shopping site’s editorial content; you probably know her best from looking at any street style blog--where her scarlet hair and standout style make her an easy target; but you might not know that she's also the creative consultant for Sigerson Morrison shoes. Yep, that's a lot of (very stylish) hats. So last evening, at the Bowery Hotel, Sigerson Morrison presented their (vast) fall collection at a party hosted by Tomasi Hill and the Street Peeper’s Phil Oh. And while we overheard TTH tell a fellow editor that she was on a “cleanse day” her enthusiasm for the shoe label overpowered any (probable) faintness she was feeling after a day filled with only juice.

“It wasn’t necessarily about changing [Sigerson Morrison], it was about taking a brand and moving it in a direction that targets more women—especially differentiating Belle [the label’s diffusion line] as the two collections were overlapping a lot," she told us. "These are shoes that cater to different times in a woman’s life.”

Though when we prodded to see what it felt like to make a move towards designing, Tomasi was careful in emphasizing that, “I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a designer, I’m a consultant. I don’t even know how to draw [laughs], so I sit with a drawer and say adjust that heel here or fix that strap.” [Ed. note: What about that collection for Lane Crawford?]

The shoes themselves are a fitting transition for a brand whose strappy designs helped to define the sexier fashions of the 90’s. There is still plenty of sex appeal—after all, no one loves a beautiful heel more than Tomasi, who’s Alaia wedding shoes were so fantastic that she once wore them to a show in Bryant Park, an outfit that was to be immortalized by The Sartorialist’s crafty lens. “I really respect a minimal clean line on shoes," she said.

What was most evident was the collection’s range: There were boots of every height and shape, heels with straps, heels with steel toes, flats, loafers, and more. And in case you were wondering, Tomasi claimed a set of metallic loafers as her favorites in the lot.
