Irene self-taught herself the art of seweing and indulgend in inspiration living and deepening her love for fashion in the 1990s in Italy.
Tanz ~ German for Dance ~ since its early stages empowers feminine expression, natural flow and a feel-good-in-your-skin sentiment.
Inspired by Jungle sounds nestled into the midst of the Central American Mountain Ranges and the roar of Ocean Waves - Irene produces every mold hand-made from her home workshop in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica supported by two Costa Rican mothers that finalize and adorn each piece. Made by jungle goddessess for all the beautiful free spirits, warrior souls and flowy fairies that wander this magnificent planet. Tanz means to make you feel free, sensual yet comfortable in your unique, stunning skin.
