The name Tashkent was the birthplace of her father’s mother. A place Cheyenne heard about only in stories. The word Tashkent embodies the memory of her grandmothers almond shaped eyes and the coarse beauty of her life.

Tashkent brings traditional handmade Italian craftsmanship together with a fresh aesthetic. Luxury materials such as soft leather sand suedes, furs, and various skins blend with metal adornments to create a delicate but raw feel.  After graduating from the School of Visual Arts in NYC, with a major in sculpture, Cheyenne never intended to be a show designer but was more interested in human form, especially the bare foot.
