About Tommy Bahama
In 1992, Tony Margolis, Bob Emfield and Lucio Dalla Gasperina pooled all of their talents and launched their first collection of Tommy Bahama Menswear. From the on-set they had in mind a different way of approaching fashion and created clothes around how they liked to live and put the whole line on vacation. To celebrate the best part of the week, the weekend, and to make clothes that transport us to an island state of mind. This island lifestyle became a way to express our creativity, our dedication to authentic quality and came to life as Tommy Bahama.
Tommy Bahama has since become an entire experience with ranges of clothing, accessories, food, rum and home furnishings. It's a whole collection of products, with expanded lines to take you through the ebb and flow of each day and year round. From the beach to elegant evenings out on the town, the subtle textures and refined finishes are carefully considered, meticulously crafted and infused with island life.
The principals behind Tommy Bahama are committed to extending the relaxed, positive vibe of the brand into philanthropic efforts. The company's participation in the Garden of Hope and Courage is an example of this commitment.
The wife of one of the founders of Tommy Bahama, Janet Emfield, battled breast cancer. During her struggle, she envisioned a peaceful garden in the midst of a sterile hospital setting. It would offer a setting of tranquility and solace for cancer patients, their families and health care providers. As an avid gardener, Emfield recognized the physical and psychological healing benefits that a natural garden setting could provide.
The Garden of Hope and Courage is dedicated to bringing the healing power of gardens to hospitals across the country. The organization has several goals in addition to paying tribute to those who have fought against breast cancer: to increase public awareness of the disease, to provide current information about early detection and treatment, and to raise money for breast cancer research. For all those who seek a place of sanctuary, a place of quiet, a place of beauty and of life, there is the Garden of Hope and Courage. Inspired by the great courage of women faced with breast cancer, as well as all who have been touched by cancer; and in memory of sons, daughters, husbands, and dear friends, the garden serves as a living testament to courage, compassion, hope and love.
