We had the good fortune of connecting with Beatrice Rose Glover and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Beatrice Rose, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I have always had a love and passion for creating, however, that didn’t feel like my life purpose. I started B. Rose Designs to not only share my creations with the world but to also fund my in house charity of encourage individuals of less fortune and aiding homelessness in my community, Miami. Passion for Fashion, Fashion with a Purpose!
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
B. Rose Designs is basically my creative outlet through fashion (for now). All of my work is 100% handmade and designed by me. Starting out, things were tough, I wanted to get all the answers for running a business from college professors or books from Barnes and Nobles. It wasn’t until the midst of Covid-19’s lockdown, when we were all forced to sit and think, that I realized the best way to know how to run a business is to…. pray, launch and go! There’s no learning like going through it. Finding ways to improve, adapting to current times, and creative thinking on elevation.
It’s a challenge to simply be your biggest supporter, when things don’t happen as planned or you get doubtful, you have to remember your “why” and force yourself to do what needs to be done.
Majority of my work is simply me asking myself “how can you stand out” or “let’s take that but make it 100 times better”. My goal is to create everyday wearable, timeless, statement pieces. Everyone is welcome, and needs a creative piece from B. Rose Designs.
I’m most excited for what I have in mind for the future. Every day there’s a bit of growth, and things are falling in place. B. Rose Designs by Beatrice Rose will be an anticipated destination for fashion and much more!
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Being born and raised in Miami, it’s only right anything we do has to involve some Sun and the beach. Beach side restaurant/bar, shopping on South Beach. All things beach, so get ready to tan!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My mommy dearest, 8 siblings, and mentor. If it weren’t for my mom’s encouragement, business expertise and financial support, my brand wouldn’t be where it is today. I don’t have a team to help me run and maintain my brand, but my siblings all are talented determined individuals that support me in any way possible. Whether it be photography, modeling or social media they come through for me.
Also, my mentor Priscilla of Earthy Chic Boutique, never fails at giving me the insights of sustaining a company.
