Roseings was launched in July 2020 in the midst of a pandemic, I was 21 weeks pregnant with my second child and had a rambunctious toddler in tow. The timing may have seemed unwise (read: quite frankly bonkers!) but looking around I believed I could add a little sparkle to those dark times.

My vision was to not only design and handcraft gorgeous products, but to create a company that had a voice and wasn't afraid to use it. Roseings is a socially conscious fashion company, committed to meaningful self-empowerment and racial equality.

In October 2020, award-winning journalist and diversity advocate Ateh Jewel and I teamed up to bring a hair crown to the market that wasn't just a beautiful statement piece but a social one too, a representation of the fight for social justice and equality symbolised by its name the Kamala. The first ever Kamala band was sold a week before Etta was born in November. This Summer, Ateh and I have partnered up again to launch a second bold and beautiful hair crown, the Gorman, in honour of the inspirational poet Amanda Gorman, to encourage you to #crownyourself and 'stand taller, straighter, prouder'.

It hasn't always been easy, but so many of you across the globe have embraced Roseings London, our brand ethos and beautiful headbands, seeing them as we do, not just gorgeous and practical accessories but symbols of your empowerment.

Since our launch we have been featured in numerous press articles, including The Sunday Times Style and The New York Times and seen on CNN, Good Morning Britain and This Morning, all in appreciation of this ascending accessory and it's crowning touch.
Reflecting on our journey so far I am so proud and wanted to thank you all for your support. This last year has been full of so many challenges for so many, but I feel an overwhelming sense of hope for the future and as we step forward, Roseings' holds fast in the belief that no matter the circumstance, no matter where we come from, everybody deserves to shine.
Keep fighting, keep smiling and stay hopeful.
Love Emily and the Roseings London team x
