Caribbean firm has designs on fashion

Caribbean firm has designs on fashion

 

AN ENTERPRISING APPAREL manufacturing company has big plans for Barbadian and Caribbean fashion designers.

Declaring "you can't have fashion without fabric," Rozana Moseley, co-founder of LaRosa Couture, believes the local and regional fashion industry has been hindered by the absence of quality manufacturing facilities to support its creativity.      

 Moseley, who co-founded the company with her husband Ryan, said LaRosa Couture is positioning itself to mend the situation.

The fashion fraternity, she announced, has responded positively to the company's mission to become the leading small batch apparel manufacturing company in Barbados as the new business starts to gain momentum with the support of the Barbados Entrepreneurs' Venture Capital Fund, known as BIM Ventures.

"We are starting to bear fruit and have expanded our efforts to include providing manufacturing support for the work of fashion designers in neighbouring Trinidad, Martinique and Guadeloupe," Moseley disclosed, noting that LaRosa Couture is answering the call for a regional manufacturing facility for high-end clothing.    

 The financial and mentorship support provided by BIM Ventures to LaRosa Couture has been indispensable to the execution of the vision, Moseley opined, "broadening the scope of our company."

 Gregory Hinkson, BIM Ventures Shepherd and Director of LaRosa Couture, agreed: "The relationship between the shepherd, who functions as more than a mentor, and the entrepreneur is crucial to fulfilling the mandate of the company - we can truly see the potential of boosting foreign exchange reserves through our operations while supporting fashion designers in their mission to go global."
