Rose & Fitzgerald is a design and craft studio based in Kampala, Uganda, founded by a Californian couple who wanted to merge their sense of coastal living and contemporary fashion with the beauty of the indigenous materials and craftspeople they encountered in their adopted home of Africa.
Rose & Fitzgerald works with master hand-craftsmen to create and curate unexpected, beautiful pieces mixing traditional craft with a stylish flair. Designed for those who seek something uncommon from far-away places.
I recognize hidden talent and seek to fuse the skills of these African artisans with minimalistic, modern designs influenced by my travels the world-over. In turn, I've developed a limited collection of timeless, yet unmistakably current pieces with the urban individual in mind.
In Summer of 2013, I am launching my first collection of jewelry and home-goods, each imprinted with the personal touch of the individual who crafted it. The materials have been hand-selected and locally sourced, and reflect the raw, natural beauty and soul of the continent I call home.
