Rossana Naum-Stoian grew up in a home of fine art and world culture. She is grateful to have the opportunity to explore the world and to be encouraged by her family to develop her imaginative expression. Since childhood she has dreamt of making her creative vision into her life's passion and profession. Through the experience of many creative channels, Rossana determined Fashion Design to be a truly satisfying artistic field to which to dedicate her life. She is proud to create pieces that present extensions of the body and spirit of her customer. Rossana is an Artist and Designer living in London, England, after recently moving from San Francisco, California. She formally studied studio art for four years at the University of California Santa Cruz, where she received two Bachelor of Arts degrees in Art and Business Management Economics. She continues to ambitiously create for over 11 years. Her artistic mediums include, but are not limited to: paint, illustration (both physical and digital), wood sculpture, intaglio print, lithographic print, wood block print, screenprint, photography, and fashion design. Most relevantly, fashion design has become her true life's work passion and recent study focus over the past two years. Rossana is formally trained in Fashion Design at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in San Francisco where she gained technical skills, industry knowledge, and confidence in her product and business identity.
