So what is the story behind this unique work? Rosemary launched her clothing brand Nevenka 2006, inspired to create something truly beautiful after the death of her mother of the same name. Nevenka the brand "is not only a tribute to love and loss; it’s a celebration of all things feminine and beautiful." She takes the old and gives it new life and purpose. The embroideries and embellishments replicated in her work are sourced from family heirlooms, and those found on her global travels, especially from Eastern Europe where her family originates.
Her clothes are treasures bringing the past into the present for continued purpose and joy. Many women choose Nevenka gowns for their "special" day. An ideal match. A unique gown from a rich past, to set someone off into a new life full of possibility. Perfect.
