Taranjit (Taran) Cheema is a trailblazing fashion designer from the vibrant city of Vancouver, British Columbia. With an innate passion for creativity and an eye for details, Taran has carved out a distinct niche in the world of fashion.


As a Punjabi girl raised in Vancouver, Taran often struggled with identity and community. Being around western cultures and embracing South Asian influences shaped her unique design aesthetic. After completing her Bachelors in fashion design, at Parsons the New School for Design located in NYC in 2013, Taran embarked on a journey to start her own brand with the aim to merge to push boundaries and challenge conventional norms.


During her time at Parsons, Taran’s talents were recognized, and her thesis collection was shared at the prestige’s Parsons Benefit Gala and the Parsons 560 Exhibition. Following her move back to Vancouver Taran launched her brand TKC Design Inc. and was immediately sponsored to showcase five collections at Vancouver Fashion Week over several years. 


TKC Design Inc’s bold approach to creating conversations through the art of fashion design has captivated audiences from media such as BuzzFeed, publications such as Brown Girl Magazine and Flare magazine, to public figures such as Maitreyi Ramakrishnan and Hasan Minhaj. In the digital space, TKC has garnered millions of views and has grown a community on platforms such as TikTok and Instagram. 


TKC Design Inc. redefines the boundaries of fashion, inspiring individuals to express themselves boldly and authentically in all spaces. With garments that express the duality of tradition and modernity, TKC’s aim is to generate conversations through design. The creation of community is significant for the brand, as TKC aims to create more conversations through design and to strives to cultivates a space that feels like “home.”
