Hi! My name is Grace Rose, I'm 14 and I attend a Performing Arts Academy. While I love to sing, dance & perform, I’m also a clothing designer.
I have hosted a Fashion Fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis every year since I was born. A few years ago (for my 10th Annual) I designed the entire collection. After the show, the clothes were auctioned off and people kept asking where they could buy more clothes and continue to support my efforts in finding a cure. I have Cystic Fibrosis. I'm designing and selling clothes to raise money and awareness for CF research. My plan is to #cureCF #instyle
Cystic Fibrosis is life-threatening and there is no cure, YET. They are getting closer each year. I do multiple treatments and take several medications every day just to stay healthy. CF is not well known which is why I feel like it’s so important for me to do whatever I can to help find a cure for everyone that is living with it.
I was born in New Orleans, Louisiana and I moved to Los Angeles after Hurricane Katrina. The clothing line is inspired by my love for the two cities I call home: Los Angeles and New Orleans. I hand pick all the fabrics and create the styles. I design with 3 C's in mind: cute, colorful and comfortable.
The name “Rosie G” comes from my alter ego. When I was little I'd put on lip gloss, get dressed up and sing and dance in the mirror. Everyone would say "oh look, here comes Rosie G"
Another cool thing about my clothing line is that proceeds from sales go back to CF research to help find a cure.
xo, Grace Rose
