Tamu McPherson was born in Jamaica and moved to New York when she was six years old. She studied Literature and Rhetoric at Binghamton University before going on to receive a JD/MBA from Fordham Law and Business Schools.
It was at grad school that she realised that her spirit was in fashion and not in jurisprudence or finance. In 2005, after working briefly as a lawyer, she moved with her husband to Milan where she officially started my career in fashion.
She first started taking street style photographs in 2006 for Glamour.it. Shortly after, she began writing feature pieces for Vogue Pelle and became a contributor at Elle Italia. She launched All the Pretty Birds in November 2008.Before becoming Editor-in-Chief of Grazia.it in February 2011, a position that she held until September 2013, she had the great pleasure of contributing to amazing publications and websites such as Glamour U.S., Harper’s Bazaar U.S., Metro and Refinery 29.
