Kenzie Rose

Fashion Designer

K.Rose Cayman Islands is a fashion design house based out of George Town, Grand Cayman, which was launched in the spring of 2015.

Founder and head designer Kenzie Rose has been sewing and designing since childhood;

“Growing up, I was always picking up my mom’s fabric, wrapping it around myself or my sister and pinning it into “dresses.”

With no formal training (Aside from watching and learning from her mother; who is also a fashion designer and tailor), Kenzie not only conceptualizes, designs, sketches and patterns each garment; she stitches appliques’ and constructs every piece shown on the K.Rose runway.

In 2015 K.Rose worked with YNC Cayman last fall to create a capsule collection for Allure, Collaborated with Coterie Label on their “Conch Soup” label launch, Styled Coterie Label’s fashion runway for Cayman Mardi Gras, produced wardrobe for Caymanian music artist Josh Pearl; and provided garments for one of Caymanian stylist Nick O’Connor and Antonio McFadden’s performance runway shows;  “Vanity”, in Huntsville, Alabama.

The Fall/Winter 2016 collection; titled “Drowning in Paradise” featured edgy, sexy wearable couture with an eccentric military flare which was extremely well-received at Cayman Islands Fashion Week last April.

Immediately following, Kenzie was sought out by the Miss Cayman Islands committee to design and produce Miss Cayman Islands 2016, Monyque Brooks National Costume, to be worn on the international stage at the 2016 Miss Universe Pageant. Over 7.9 million people viewed the pageant; and the National Costume placed on many “best costume” lists, including Yahoo.com and Cosmopolitan.com

In February of this year; Kenzie was in an accident, and suffered severe burns to both hands and forearms, which proved extremely challenging. “Not being able to have the use of my hands for day to day activities was painful, but worse was the frustration of being unable to work on my craft”. After 6 weeks of daily hospital visits she managed to work through the recovery pain to design and produce two one-of-a-kind evening gowns for contestants in the Miss Cayman Islands 2017 Pageant; in which Kristin Amaya and Mahalia Seymour placed 1st runner up, and 2nd runner up respectively.

Her current collection for this season is titled “Gemini”, and explores the two very different sides of her design esthetic in honor of her 30th birthday this year. On top of showing this collection at CayFilm 2017; she will be showing at BVI Summer Sizzle 2017, Tortola, British Virgin Islands in July. She also hopes to present a future showing of her designs to fundraise and bring awareness to burn treatment, and a future burn survivors network locally.
