Tara Rudes Dann

Partner at L’AGENCE

Fashion Maven, Philanthropist, and Community Leader Tara Dann has dominated the fashion industry for over a decade and a half through work with J Brand and now L’AGENCE. The third generation of a family immersed in the garment industry, the concept of entering the fashion world was second nature for Tara since birth. Her fashion career began with J Brand, which was founded by her uncle, Jeff Rudes. She quickly flourished at J. Brand, in less than a year was promoted to sales associate, and a year later was promoted to an account executive managing a multi-million dollar business. After J Brand was sold in 2014, Tara began her journey at L’AGENCE, another company co-founded by her uncle. She’s held her firm position as Vice President and Partner for over five years at L’AGENCE, while also immersing herself in the design and merchandising process. Outside of the office, Tara is a wife to fellow fashion leader Steven Dann and a mother to their 4-year-old son, Greyson. Tara has been the force behind iconic brands for years, though in many ways she’s just getting started. Her philanthropic work with organizations like the American Cancer Society and UJA has inspired her to continue in that trajectory, while also seeking ventures of her own. Such ventures include utilizing her love for entrepreneurial and motivational speaking with her debut on networks like CNN & NBC, as well as numerous panels. At this stage in her career, Tara’s greatest move is giving back, through doing and speaking. “What you give is what you get,” she expresses. “I want to make a difference in this world and in this lifetime.” It starts with fashion, but for Tara, it certainly doesn’t end there. “I aim to make everyone feel and look beautiful through fashion,” she says. “But my main mission is to help people find that beauty from within.”
