The beginnings were benign enough, a youth born of talent, a visionary, and artistic insight that from a close knit family with roots that extended beyond the inner city community were the origins that shaped the structure of Artistic Fashion Designer, Tamil Robinson.
Newark,NJ served as a balance backdrop of urban blight and beauty, of decay and re-birth, of struggle. The Robinson household was the oasis that made balancing these realities into an aesthetic panoply for the innate talent of Tamil Robinson that surfaced at a very young age.
A formal classical education of the fine visual arts took place at the prestigious Arts High School in Newark,New Jersey where Tamil forged his knowledge of free-hand sketching and painting capabilities. This newly realized persona was aided and abetted by a generation of mentors, and a master pattern maker, who took Tamil under his tutelage in life and in the discipline and understanding of the aesthetics of fashion. Time, Tamil and Tapestry became the way of the world for Tamil. His understanding of the all-pervasive, all-powerful urban cultural dynamic balanced against a worldly, instinctive reach for the greater picture of the world in which he lived, fused together to form out his destiny as a man.
The rest of his journeys from master air-brush artist with street-art to his ascension to sports license apparel for companies like Puma, NFL , to primary designer for Reebok ushering in the Allen Iverson I-3 NBA collection, and consulting companies in celebrity licensing , traveling abroad to other countries fabric mills developing his original textiles patterns.
