Tina Hambly

2012 Speaker

Tina Hambly is the founder and designer of Valentina, a girls fashion brand featuring shoes for “hip, happy girls”. Within months of launching her bold girl’s brand, Valentina  was featured on as a brand “your girl will go crazy over.”  Hambly was also touted as “Designer to Watch” by Austin Monthly magazine and selected as “Best of the Best” to be featured during Austin Fashion Week 2012. The Austin American Statesman said, “There’s a girl power movement in the Austin fashion scene happening in the least likely place: on little girls’ feet.” Hambly has one mission: to build a brand that fosters creativity, individual expression and passion in girls and tweens ages six to 14. Combining her 17 year career in high tech event marketing with her fashion school education, Hambly intends to build a colorful, passionate, creative brand that will be a platform for building esteem, expression, individuality and above all happiness for every girl Valentina touches.  She calls it, “one giant leap for girlkind!”
