Designer Series: Ryan Roche

I was just about to start writing a post about all the dresses I’m dreaming of owning this summer when I come upon these beautiful pieces from Ryan Roche. I first heard of Ryan when she was a CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalist a few years back where she was runner up and won a cash prize and mentorship to grow her business and today I see her knits sold at major retailers worldwide, featured in magazines and worn by celebrities. So I’m going to focus today’s post on the queen of cashmere knits – Ryan Roche. Her kaftans and shawls are a perfect way to add some glamour during the frigid winter season. Her signature cardigans and classic fisherman sweaters are to die for and I desperately want (currently saving for) both.

Designer Ryan Roche

Ryan Roche is modern, minimal romance.

One of the things I remember clearly from the Fashion Fund was her passion and commitment to responsible manufacturing ( I love this!). She works with a women’s cooperative in Nepal to create her pieces as well as with American and Italian manufacturers. Yay Ryan! Bravo to sustainable and low impact production.

Her pieces are not like anything I’ve ever seen before. They are poetic, feminine, modern and luxurious. Just check out the pieces below from her site. Her use of color is hypnotizing and soothing and I can stare at her color palette for hours. She truly is brilliant at creating her brands color story season after season.

Until next time,
