Ros Duke is a new cashmere knitwear label which is known for its combination of modern and youthful design with a focus on luxurious beautiful knitwear and a commitment to the highest quality materials and manufacturing.
The label was founded by Ros Duke who was born and raised in Dublin. She received a BA (Hons) in Fashion Design from NCAD and a Post Grad in Innovative pattern-making from Central Saint Martins in London. Having worked alongside John Rocha for 10 years, she felt she had something more to offer to the industry, so she launched her brand Ros Duke in 2015.
Ros focuses on stitch technique and uses an exciting idiosyncratic colour palette to create unique knitwear collections. Taking inspiration from her travels and simple urban life, Ros uses innovative knitting methods, the highest quality Italian cashmere and a deep understanding of shape to put a fresh spin on her knitwear designs. The knit is primarily hand crafted and made in Ireland by a small highly skilled group of creative crafts people and knitters who help her realise her designs. Each collection is an exploration of texture and repeat pattern, the garment shapes are pared back, so the interesting surface quality is given the space to shine, they are to be worn and loved for a long time.
Ros Duke was invited to be part of CREATE in Brown Thomas, Dublin in 2015.
