Here's a little introduction to the creative mastermind behind Rosebud Lips, Lauren:
I'm 26, and a dreamer. I am a stay at home mommy in The Woodlands, TX, and love to do what I do.
I have always been creative, and learned to sew at a young age. I was taught by my grandmother (Nana) and my mom (Tama). I have always loved fashion, and at a young age moved to New York City. I had the opportunity to intern for designer Cynthia Rowley, which was an amazing experience.
To tell you why I became a designer would have to be because of my sweet memories of being a little girl (about 4) and dancing around in my Nana's silk bed sheets (my cape), adorned with her costume jewelry. I felt like a princess. My Nana has collected jewelry from my family generations back, and I felt like each piece had a story. This inspired me to use antiques in my pieces. I love textures, antiques, fabric and jewelry. Together, these form my concepts for my collection-- Making every woman feel beautiful.
I started the company in 2009, shortly after my mom passed away from Cancer. She was my best friend, and my biggest supporter. She was an artist herself, and she told me to follow my dreams and be creative. This motivated me to leave the marketing/PR world that I worked in for over 5 years. She has changed the course of my life, and I'm so excited for what the future holds. The name Rosebud Lips was actually the nickname that she gave me when I was little, then my little girl (her grand daughter).
My other passion is to support organizations that fight human trafficking. Set Hope Free. Every item sold through Rosebud Lips is bringing hope to women who have been trapped in oppression. By developing a partnership with I Am Change and the Set Hope Free project, we are redeeming women who have been held captive and oppressed through Human Trafficking and Forced Labor, and restoring hope to their lives. Through rescue support and care kits, we are seeing women reclaim their dignity and allowing them to feel beautiful again. Rosebud Lips is choosing to be the change and bring hope to deserving women and children. To learn more, go to http://www.iamchange.org/.
