About CHIC by Alison Rose

Urban Trends | Suburban Life

Alison RoseI began my career with Escada in New York City, but my true love of fashion started long before. I have been obsessed with fashion for as long as I can remember. At just five years old, my outfit selection was an important and thoughtful decision, right down to the accessories I was choosing. To this day, I can recall being more excited about the salmon-colored jumpsuit I wore to go see Santa than I was about actually seeing Santa. Perhaps this is when my love of jumpsuits began!

I value the whole process of putting an outfit together – from the shopping hunt to the final ensemble. I believe accessorizing is equally important and can elevate any outfit. My love of fashion even overflows into hairstyle and makeup selection. Styling is always on my brain. Nothing makes me happier (besides my family) than putting a fabulous outfit together!

I studied corporate communication at Ithaca College. I also took classes in styling at Parsons School of Design and classes in fashion at The Art Institute of Philadelphia. I worked in the fashion industry in New York before starting a family. After living around the world, my husband and I settled in Pennsylvania and have two sons. In my spare time, I choose to read style magazines and will pick up a book by Rachel Zoe, Tom Ford or Chanel over any other book! I love the Lord, my family, friends and fashion more than I can portray here in words.
