Rosie G Style – Fashion for a Cure

Grace Rose is a gorgeous sixth grader with a beautiful warm heart. This was so evident when I met her bubbly appreciative confident spirit at her recent Rosie G fashion show that included not only children of all ages wearing her adorable line of clothes, but kids supporting her with dance routines and numerous musical acts. Her clothing line Rosie G is designed FOR kids BY a KID with the intention of finding a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.

Grace Rose looks like a healthy happy girl, but she was born with Cystic Fibrosis, a life-threatening genetic disorder with no cure. The disease causes persistent lung infections and progressively limits the ability to breathe. Grace’s goal is to raise money and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis research. Her plan is to #CureCF #InStyle.

Rosie G‘s fashion fundraiser occurred last weekend at CBS Studios with temperatures around a 100 degrees. Kym Gold, Co-founder of True Religion jeans got the party or fashion show started introducing Rosie G. Girls of all ages modeled Rosie G’s hip (but school appropriate) styles including dresses, black skinny pants, ruffly leather tops, and T-shirts with important messages, while they bopped down the gorgeous bright green turf to tunes by another young star, DJ Young One. The Grilled Cheese Truck was serving various creative LA sandwiches, like Grilled Cheese, Bacon, and Green Apples while Honest Tea kept guests hydrated among countless other sponsors.

I learned via the fashion fundraiser program of events that the FDA recently approved a second drug (2015) since the last one in 2012 to treat the root cause of cystic fibrosis, a defective protein known as CFTR.

“Cystic Fibrosis is life-threatening and there is no cure, YET. They are getting closer each year and just since I was born the medications are allowing us to live longer and healthier lives. When you look at me you have no idea that I do treatments and take several medications each day just to stay healthy, eating, and breathing. I really want to help find a cure so these things aren’t so difficult for me or anyone living with it.” – Grace Rose

Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, Grace Rose’s mom moved them to LA after Hurricane Katrina. The Rosie G clothing line is inspired by Grace Rose’s love for the two cities: Los Angeles and New Orleans. Grace Rose hand picks all the fabrics and creates the styles. She says she designs with 3 C’s in mind: cute, colorful & comfortable. The name “Rosie G” comes from her alter ego since, “When I was little I’d put on lip gloss, get dressed up and sing and dance in the mirror. Everyone would say “oh look, here comes Rosie G.”

Rosie G! Look at her GO!

All proceeds from the fashion fundraiser and a portion of sales from her Rosie G line will go back to Cystic Fibrosis research to help find a cure.
