Terese was only 15 when she knew what she wanted to do as her career. Her interest in fashion was originally sparked when she did modeling and helped to plan events for a department store in town. Terese, who also had a passion for art, realized she could bring the worlds of fashion and art together by becoming a clothing designer! Terese received her fashion design degree from UW-Madison and the Fashion Institute in New York City. Terese then returned to her hometown of Madison to open Terese Zache Designs in 1981. She designed and constructed more than 1,500 original pieces over the next 20 years.
Her designs have been worn at the White House, Grammy’s and many other prestigious business and social events locally and abroad. Her talent, education, and design background gives her a unique perspective on fashion suited to Madison, The Midwest…or anywhere! In 2003 Terese opened the first Terese Zache Designs retail store in Middleton. She then moved to the Hilldale Mall where she stayed for 9 years and is now happily located in her new boutique just outside the West Towne Mall!
