From Doctor to Designer:
Having been known to leave a long shift at the hospital and head straight to Neiman Marcus , Taryn's own search for heels that didn't hurt her feet left her as frustrated as the rest of us. As Rose neared the end of her residency, she started thinking about a different career path -- that of a shoe designer.
About Taryn Rose Shoes:
Free of the pointy toes and spiked heels that are so brutal on our feet and bodies, the Taryn Rose line of women's shoes includes high heels, flats, sandals, evening shoes and boots that range from feminine to funky, and have loads of personality. The soles of Taryn Rose women's shoes feature an embossed print of an enlarged rose pattern.
At her first Beverly Hills boutique, she found that some customers had travelled across the country to purchase as many as 20 pair, and sales were so impressive during trials at stores like Neiman Marcus, that her shoes are now carried at several of their locations, as well as most other high-end department stores.
In recent years, Taryn has opened several other boutiques, including one in Seoul, Korea, and has added men's shoes to the mix. In 2006, a line of handbags bearing the Taryn Rose label was launched.
The Taryn by Taryn Rose line features styles that are a bit on the trendier side and are also a bit less expensive, averaging about $200-300 per pair.
