About

Crimson Rose is the creation of Crimson Rose O'Shea. Crimson was born in Birmingham and later moved to London, where she studied womenswear at Central Saint Martins and textile design at the Royal College of Art.

Using her background in both womenswear and textile design she creates wearable collections that are bold and colourful by nature. The clothing is easy and comfortable to wear. The clean lined shapes are the perfect canvas for her eye-catching and original textile designs.

Crimson uses travel as a way to gain new design inspiration. A typical trip will see her take hundreds of photographs, as well as keep sketchbooks and collect inspirational items from the places she visits. Back in the studio, Crimson then develops the collections, beginning with creating the fabric designs from her sketches. Her prints are hand drawn or digitally rendered and exclusive to Crimson Rose.

Crimson loves and collects vintage clothing and her collections often reference vintage garments, but she always gives them a contemporary twist. The fabrics and finish of Crimson's designs are of high quality, with comfort and durability carefully considered. 

The garments are made with love, by hand, predominantly in the UK. Exceptional care is taken in all aspects of the design process. The clothes are produced in short runs or via our made to order service.
