After spending years of working in both the fashion industry and the corporate world, owner and operator Tara Camardo made the decision to follow her lifelong dream of owning her own boutique. A native of Guilderland, Tara has been on a path that has brought her to this perfect time to open her own boutique. With a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts in Fashion Design and Marketing, she first began her journey working in the garment district as an account executive at a dress company, selling to boutiques and specialty stores like her own. Over the past twenty years, Tara has worked in retail management, visual coordinating and merchandising, bridal consulting, buying, small store management, marketing, private seamstress work and property management. Tara has built her career from concept to design, to production, to sales, with all of this leading Tara to opening the doors of Azalea.
Tara has lifelong ties to the Capital Region. As a result, Azalea is committed to building lasting relationships with clients from surrounding communities.
