The Rosie Assoulin design aesthetic toes the line between the romantically fantastical and reliably practical. Her designs are a blend of sculpted ease and bold lines. Rosie Assoulin began using her grandmother’s sewing machine to experiment with pattern, texture and style as a means of exploring her identity when she was thirteen years old. Though young, she intuitively understood that the complexities and contradictions of life would not easily find expression through literal representations. She dedicated her time to honing her skills, initially under the tutelage of her mentor, and future mother in law, veteran jewelry designer Roxanne Assoulin, at Lee Angel. After a brief stint at Fashion Institute of Technology, she found herself at Oscar de la Renta in New York, watching the always-elegant Mr. de la Renta drape, cut, and pin his legendary designs. Later, Rosie sought out a life altering opportunity to spend time in the design studio of Lanvin in Paris, where she bore witness to Alber Elbaz’s pure, unbridled creativity, and unmatched design talent. After working under all three of her childhood idols, their imprint and inspiration would forever more inform her perspective and aesthetic appreciation.
