b. a. rose collections have been wildly inaccessible in the past ‘cos the lil punk bumpkin designer artist & muses

love tits hanging out, lotsa sideboob, cock socks, wardrobe malfunctions, raw edges, ugly finishings on beautiful bodies, unwearable art made of semi-truck innertube tires, and the like that is “Fashion.”

she made super accessible Fibershed knitwear for a short moment in time called covid lockdowns,

& then realized she needed to focus again on her Master's thesis:

fashion your reality

be a rose 

love your clothes

as your second skin

love within

Fashion is social justice work.

 

to deal with all the things,

it is conducive to name them

INTERSECTIONALITY

Inspired by Teju Adisa-Farrar

Statement of Positionality

gender: woman 

class: low because i'm a woman & garment worker; but i was raised upper-middle in "bedroom communities" to the richest resort towns in the world; that led to higher depression rates than the national average because we compared ourselves to the richest rich (i helped to conduct a sociological study on this my senior yr of hs)

ethnicity:
Papa: Siciliana, Calabrese, Moroccan, Hellene;
Mamma: Irish, English, German, Scottish, French, Swiss, Prussian (from most to least).

Actively deconstructing whiteness while acknowledging my privilege as passing & family assimilating into whiteness

sexuality: Alloromantic Allosexual Androsexual Autoromantic Autosexual Demiromantic Demisexual Heteromantic Heterosexual Monosexual

culture: Colorada-Siciliana-Americana matriarch Nana (east coast Italian-American is a whole different animal - just sayin'- & get your Mafia stereotypes off me, by the way, basta, grazie, kis kiss) instilled a strong sense of Italianness into our American identity; always feeling uncomfortable with the WASPy side of the family who were primarily ranchers & farmers; raised in a tiny mountain town, questioning religion & the corporate monster of a ski resort (while enjoying the privileges of living next to a world-class resort), raised with the stories of Lovers Leap, a Ute tale, & Navajo cousins; growing up next to an abandoned mining town; with the knowledge that industries fade, men die, & before they do, they leave scars all over mountains in search of riches, when they were blind to the bountiful beauty that surrounded them

profession: garment worker turned founder

nationality: American, born 'n bred in Colorada

able-bodied, except when i faint & lose conciousness
