Rosie Evans specialises in corsetry and Elizabethan bodices, but that doesn't stop her from creating beautiful jumpers, skirts and blouses too. Her pieces encourage her audience to shop consciously and put the emphasis back on individuality that fast fashion put to death. Rosie leaves no stone unturned when searching for extraordinary fabrics to create exclusive and unique bodices - she creates from vintage materials, french tapestries, and previously owned curtain drapes. She even up-cycled her grandfather’s old houndstooth car cushion he kept since the nineties! Everything is put into artistic use. During her adolescence, Rosie's father used to teach children about the importance of recycling and sustainability. This might have nudged her into the direction of slow fashion that is not intrinsic to her brand.
Rosie Evans is an ethical luxury fashion brand, fused with elements of fantasy and traditional craft. After studying drama, art and fashion textiles at the University of West England in Bristol, she solely focused on the art of knitting for the second and third year. Her creative essence is inspired by many historical associations, like literature and films from the seventies, and cult British classic films like Heathers, and more recently The Souvenir. But at the height of her imagination lies Shakespearian poetry, and not to forget Welsh poets like Dylan Thomas.
