Alice Rose is an aspiring womenswear designer with a key interest in pattern cutting and luxury womenswear. Experimental within her practice she pushes boundaries when thinking about how textiles and print can be applied to fashion.
During her BA in Fashion Design at Norwich University of the Arts she addressed her relationship with grief, playing homage to her Dad in her graduate collection ‘A Touch of Velvet, Sting of Brass’. The collection explored her and her Dad’s common love of music. She was heavily influenced by the music and fashion of the 70’s, looking into artists including Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac and the way in which she moves around the stage during her performances. This in turn influenced the way in which she aimed to create a sense of movement within the pieces. Incorporating her love for textile design, the collection features prints, and shapes inspired by her Dad’s Jukebox.
One of Alice’s personal highlights has been starting a conversation with people surrounding the subject of grief, something that is often a difficult topic within our society. The privilege of being able to do this through her love of fashion is something she wishes to peruse in her future practice.
