 Lela Rose, the New York City-based, American fashion designer widely regarded for her elegant aesthetic and fresh point of view, continues to redefine a sophisticated, yet modern lifestyle with her expanded, designer ready-to-wear-offering. 

Today, Lela lives in New York City with her husband and two children. She was born and raised in Texas and attended college in Colorado, where she studied fine arts. Following graduation, Rose enrolled at Parson’s School of Design in New York City to pursue her love of fashion design, and later went on to work with esteemed designers Richard Tyler and Christian Francis Roth. 

After honing her love of couture fabric and fanatic appreciation of detail, Rose’s vision and passion compelled her to debut her signature Lela Rose collection in 1998. In Fall 2006, Rose debuted the Lela Rose Bridal collection. Finally in Winter 2018, Lela launched Pearl by Lela Rose - the first direct sales brand housed within a luxury fashion house.
