 Empire Rose

 

Since its inception in 1998 Empire Rose designer Kathryn Cizeika has used her Eastern European roots as points of inspiration with billowing shapes, incredible colours, and adding that extra dose of frivolity into the fashion space. Having garnered a solid cult following Empire Rose has a clientele who exudes fashion emphatically. This season she takes the Spring/Summer 2013 vibrancy to a whole new level with ensembles that can easily resemble the artistic vibe of an Andy Warhol or a Jackson Pollock.
