Stephanie Rado Taormina is the founder, designer and CEO of the lifestyle brand Have Some Fun Today. As a fine artist and interior designer who began her career in fashion over 25 years ago, her creativity and artistic vision has always been at the heart of her work and art. It was that same creative spirit that deeply moved and inspired her after losing her beloved father in 2014.
"I was sitting in my living room one day, shortly after the passing of my father, when I began to visualize this painting I knew I had to create. I was inspired by something my father said every day; Have Some Fun Today. The painting was just the beginning. I wanted to make a t-shirt, a beach tote, a hat… That was the day I started this brand."
Stephanie has a BA in communications and business from The Pennsylvania State University. She later went on to Parsons School of Design where she earned a BFA in fashion design.
She has worked on 7th Avenue in New York City for American fashion icon Adrienne Vittadini and for the luxury brand Andrew Marc, where she experienced the world of fashion and design. She also ran her own soft home furnishings business before she began a successful interior design business and still works with clients who love her style and aesthetic. In 2008, she opened an art studio in the GoggleWorks Center for Arts in Reading, PA, featuring her artwork and paintings until she moved her entire operation to a private design studio in Wyomissing.
Stephanie founded HSFT to share her passion for finding the joy in life. She started with a t-shirt and those four words her father always said and has since created mindset and a philosophy that connects with her customers. It's the beauty of that connection with people that inspires her to keep sharing the message. "Those four words my father said have shaped my life. It's a mindset and a way of life."
