Tanya Ling

Tanya Ling an artist and designer whose career has traversed both the art world and fashion industry. Born in Calcutta (1966), her childhood was spent in America, Africa and England. She now lives and works in London.

Ling studied Fashion Design and Textiles at St Martins School of Art and after graduating in 1989 moved to Paris to work as a designer for Dorothee Bis and then for Christian Lacroix. On her return to London she set up a contemporary art project Bipasha Ghosh with her husband William Ling and in 1996 produced her first exhibition of drawings in artist Gavin Turk’s studio on the Charing Cross Road, London. This exhibition led to her first commission from British Vogue. Since then, Ling has contributed to leading fashion titles throughout the world including Harper’s Bazaar and US Elle, for whom she illustrated six award-winning trend reports (1999 -2001).

In 2002 Ling produced her debut ready-to-wear collection, which was presented at London’s Mayor Gallery on Cork Street after which the collection was showcased in the windows of Henri Bendel on 5th Avenue, New York. In 2003 British Vogue named Ling one of the most important trendsetters in Britain and The Observer Magazine announced her as their designer of the year. Her A/W 2003 collection was shown at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London.

Ling’s work has been featured in numerous newspapers and publications including Cally Blackman’s ‘100 Years of Fashion Illustration’ published by Laurence King. In 2009 Ling was appointed the Creative Director of Veryta, a RTW women’s luxury fashion brand founded by Filippo Binaghi and Stefano Pilati to support the Veryta Foundation and in 2011 over 50 for her drawings were acquired by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Her clients for fashion illustration include Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton and Selfridges.
