Interview | Kristi Rose, Designer.

I adore the femininity this collection holds. With soft flowing fabrics and beautiful signature prints, Kristi Rose's Spring/Summer
collection "Greased Lightin'" is one to lust after this summer. Personally, I am swooning over the entire look in the
first shot; 'The One The I Want' t-shirt and 'Hound Dog' shorts. (How cute are the 'Grease' referenced pieces!)

I was lucky enough to ask Kristi a few questions on all things 'Kristi Rose'...

1. Name. Age. Occupation.
Kristi Rose. 24. Designer.

2. Let's start from the beginning... How did 'Kristi Rose' come about?
As far back as I can remember I've always wanted to do something in a creative field, it was always where I felt 
most comfortable. My childhood was spent creating outfits and forcing my parents into buying me clothes. I guess 
you could say it just naturally progressed into designing and dressing others.

3. Where do you find your inspiration for new collections and who are your influences?
I am always inspired by prints, local and international artists and colour schemes. Right now I admire designers with their 
own individual approach to print design such as Proenza Schouler, Mary Katrantzou and local designer Josh Goot.

4. What has been your career highlight thus far?
Having the opportunity to showcase at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week New Generation Show 
was by far the highlight for me.

5. Who would you die to see in your designs?
I would kill to see Clemence Poesy, Kate Bosworth or Alexa Chung in a Kristi Rose piece.

6. What are your favourite pieces from "Greased Lightnin"?
You cannot physically get me out of the Peachy-Keen Jellybean playsuit lately, it's scary. 
Other than that I am loving all the matching suits and mixing the prints up.

7. And lastly... Where to next for 'Kristi Rose'?
Swim! I'm starting to work on a swim line for next year. Exciting things, I promise.

Thank you Kristi, I personally can't wait to see what is in store after this killer collection.

Available at the online store now.
