Boredom during summer breaks from school in her hometown of Calgary, Alberta led to Tina Tam##Q##s interest in arts and crafts. As a youth, Tam did anything creative to keep her busy, from beaded jewellery to re-fashioning old clothes to create new looks. Carnal Design was conceptualized as a project in her final year at the Art Institute of Vancouver in 2008. She graduated with the Most Outstanding Collection Award for her collection, inspired by heavy metal and rock ##Q##n roll with a femme fatale attitude. She has since developed Carnal Design into a brand that clothes Vancouver women with a sexy, confident edge.
