Concreteislandista was created by Tabitha Serrano. Raised as a little girl in the tri-state area she learned to love the arts with various trips to the area’s museums. Tabitha also loves to travel and has lived in Italy and traveled to Spain. She has visited a few U.S. states including California, Florida, Pennsylvania and Connecticut in search of fashion, art and culture, but finds home in the NJ and NYC area. Tabitha has her Bachelors Degree in Fashion Marketing and Management with a minor in International Business. Before her graduation date she was hired in the fashion industry in New York City and from that point on has worked various jobs and currently freelances in the fashion industry. In January 2016 she created the blog Concreteislandista from a need to share her trips to fashion exhibitions and her love of New York City. With her inside look into the fashion industry and ability to work in the city she was in a prime position to write about anything fashion and New York City related. As her blog has grown into a business Tabitha has been able to work with other bloggers, makeup artists, designers and more. Her love of writing has afforded her opportunities to write for others and expand her career. She loves being able to bring fashion, travel, lifestyle and NYC to the forefront for those who can’t get to the concrete island.
