Contemporary womenswear designer Rose Danford-Phillips creates bold, painterly garments and accessories inspired by nature, for striking women with artistic flair and an appreciation for luxury.
Raised by a family of gardeners and artists, a love of the unrestrained, maximalist beauty of nature lies at the core of Rose's work; which is translated into hand-painted and collaged prints, experimental ‘organic' textiles and joyful ‘growing' embroideries, and which combine to create her world of Modern Baroque. Rose is fascinated by transformations, and explores this in her work via juxtapositions of traditional and digital crafts; of masculine and feminine silhouettes; and of the stories of both mythic and modern women.
London-born Rose Danford-Phillips graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2017 with a fashion MA after completing a BA in textiles at Chelsea College of Art & Design, where her love of material and craft emerged. Danford-Phillips debuted her eponymous label as part of the House of Peroni with her AW2019 collection, and showed her SS2020 collection with on OnOff at London Fashion Week. Rose and her work has been featured in Vogue UK, Vogue China, and Vogue Netherlands, as well as Wonderland, Hunger, Glamour, ID and Dazed, as well as being worn by Erykah Badu and Halsey.
