Rosie Assoulin Named to Alvanon’s Mentorship Program

Rosie Assoulin
Alvanon, The Global Apparel Business Expert, has named  women’s fashion designer Rosie Assoulin to its Mentorship Program. The announcement was made by Alvanon CEO Janice Wang.

Under the program, Alvanon will strengthen Assoulin’s existing business competence with statistical sizing data, technical design tools and training in key areas of the art and science of fashion, including production, supply chain issues, fit, marketing and sales.

“Rosie is a perfect candidate for our Mentorship Program,” Wang says. “She has been in business for just over two years and is already an accomplished, inspired and professional designer. Her enormous talent was recently recognized by the Council of Fashion Designers of America when it presented Rosie with the 2015 Swarovski Award for emerging designers in the women’s wear category.

“An equally important part of Rosie’s attractiveness to Alvanon is the strength of her business team, led by husband Max Assoulin,” Wang continues. “No designer can work without effective support. Max brings vast business knowledge to the Rosie Assoulin brand. They work together, one creative, one business, two brilliant sides of the fashion coin.”

Rosie Assoulin has interned at studios in Paris and New York, and cites hands on experience as her primary training background. “I have no degree in design,” Assoulin says. “I learned by osmosis, by being around the business and through internships and jumping in and figuring it out as I went along.”

The Rosie Assoulin brand is American sportswear sophisticate, and ranges from elegant eveningwear to sports and leisurewear.

Assoulin says her inspiration for women’s fashion designs comes from varied sources. “I get inspiration from so many things,” she says, “nature, plants and animals, and also architecture, food, music and travel. I try to capture any part of life where I feel emotional or excited and put it into my designs.”
Assoulin notes that her business will benefit from Alvanon’s mentoring in several ways.
Alvanon has an incredible wealth of knowledge, scientific data and experience,” she says, “and it’s not limited to design or production. Their expertise covers virtually every aspect of the fashion business. Fit, for example, is something we are constantly looking to perfect. We’ll always be tweaking it to satisfy our customers and retailers, and with Alvanon’s help we will improve our fit skills right along with our creative and business skills.”
Assoulin’s studio and manufacturing facilities are all NYC-based, and her distribution is worldwide, through leading department stores, boutiques and web site businesses.
