I am so excited to write this blog post and to share this incredible brand with all of you. Founder and Creative Director, Nishika de Rosairo, is one beautiful woman inside and out. Not only does she make fabulous clothing with quality craftsmanship and unique designs, but she has also created a socially responsible brand, which supports and empowers women. During our first conversation over the phone, I was immediately inspired by Nishika’s radiant and positive personality. It was electrifying to speak with her. I felt like I could conquer the world after our in-depth discussion about fashion, life and creating something more than simply good design. She is at the forefront of a movement which could change the world – one fashion garment at a time.
As you can imagine, I couldn’t wait to wear her asymmetrical, original designs, which are perfect for the modern woman who does not want to compromise luxury for fast fashion. Since layering is part of my every day mantra, I stayed true to my myself and piled on her clothing for this shoot. The dE ROSAIRO brand makes it exceptionally easy to achieve that ‘not trying too hard cool-girl vibe’. Just start with a jacket and cardigan, like I did here, and layer, layer, layer. Work with clothing from your own closet and hop on the ‘Less Is More’ bandwagon. It’s not always about how much clothing you have in your closet, rather the quality and craftsmanship of the designs you own. It is equally important to know, exactly, WHO made the clothing and WHAT type of environment they work in. I don’t know about you, but wearing clothing from an ethical company like the dE ROSAIRO brand makes me feel like I am helping to make a difference in this world.
I chose to shoot in this skate park in Philadelphia, PA, based on a recommendation from talented Philadelphia photographer @fr_nk (check him out on Instagram!) who took all the photos for this shoot. I felt we needed a gritty, urban environment to go with the concept of the modern woman who wants wearable, artistic, and versatile separates. We had so much fun doing this shoot and, thankfully, the skaters were patient with us and gave us all the space we needed!
Becoming an Ambassador for the dE ROSAIRO brand has been an honor and privilege, not only because of their integrity and ethical standards but also because of their support for causes such as ‘Not For Sale,’ a non-profit organization whose mission it is to end human trafficking and slavery. The woman behind it all is one fabulous human being. And this is only the beginning…
