is Afro-Caribbean inspired fashion in its very own style. The label was founded in 2006 by the German-Jamaican fashion designer Tabitha Minott. The name Tabatap is based on the Jamaican proverb "TAP A TAP" (Top of the tops) ... Tab (itha) - A - Tap = TABATAP. Tabatap stands for colorful Afrocentric and Afro-futuristic clothing based on and proud of the designer's origins. The designs are a fusion of African and Caribbean (especially Jamaica), Rasta, Reggae / Dancehall and street style elements. Spirituality, history and art also have a strong influence on fashion and the exploration of the power of the "Divine Feminine" #channelyourinnergoddess.
Tabatap was represented at numerous events, fashion shows, exhibitions, Africa festivals / markets, reggae festivals in the DE area. The creation of artist outfits for appearances and photo shoots and styling for a video shoot is also part of the report. Tabatap is an international, afro-diasporic brand with worldwide customers in Europe, USA, Jamaica, Asia around the world.
Tabatap's goal is to empower with fashion and art in an afrocentric way.
