Rose & Willard is a slow fashion, award-winning career wear label based in London.
We create beautifully-crafted, enduring luxury for the modern, professional, individual woman -
a woman who knows what she wants & stands up for what she believes in.
Our name means, literally, Feminine & Bold. These words embody the principles, aesthetic and spirit of our brand.
Our business wear collections
Our working wardrobe capsules comprise beautifully-designed pieces for career women whose focus is to perform. Versatility and functionality is written into every style. Many of our pieces are easy care - washable and crease resistant and so ideal for business travel and demanding career lifestyles.
We source only the finest fabrics - mostly from the leading mills of Italy - and pay absolute attention to every detail throughout the creative process. Every element is considered, every measure is meticulously examined and this is repeated until the fit and feel has been perfected.
Our purpose is to fortify the style, elegance and confidence our customers embody.
Slow fashion officewear
Rose & Willard is a slow fashion office wear brand for ambitious, professional women with a conscience.
We are kind to people all along our value chain. We believe in fair relationships with our colleagues, suppliers and partners.
We are kind to the environment. We keep our air miles as low as possible - we design, manufacture and distribute from one location in London. We are fortunate that our customers also support our approach to minimal packaging which helps reduce waste and allows us to invest more into the quality of the product.
