Deborah Rosa has being considered an outstanding surprise in such a revival moment when it comes to the fashion industry blogosphere. She is the face and mind behind the huge growth of Fashiion Gone Rouse and although she is in love with Céline, she also loves Nutrition.
Débora Rosa – her real name – is one of her “most wanted features”. For those that do not know, it is such a traditional Portuguese name. Being a millennial herself, some of us could think that she would love to hide that for International purposes, but she reflects quite the opposite. She loves using it as a true Portuguese, however, “most people address to me thinking that I am from London or USA” she says.
When asked about her true inspiration (no, it is not – only – Céline), she refers to Madeira as a place to “charge batteries, where I can just turn off my phone, where I can rebut and be ready for new inspirations”.
Débora is a quite brilliant young woman, not only because she has quite a passion for image research, but because she is doing her masters in Metabolic Diseases and Eating Behavior – which she handles in parallel with her daily office to-do list that involves “curatorship, boards management, styling advice through FGR pages, shooting and updating her social media”. She mentions as in a little reminder of the hard work that “it gets chaotic from time to time”, confessing to be addicted as well.
Confronted with Aimee Song’s super public announcement of her “Fav Instagram Account to Follow” , Débora suddenly turns into a 5 year old at the playground. She shares that “Aimee aka Song of Style started to follow me two weeks before and I couldn’t be more caught off guard” – not a big deal everyone, having in mind that Aimee has more than 4 Million followers. #goals
At this point we all have already understood that Débora has a big crush for minimalism, simplicity and neutrals, however, when speaking about FW17/18, she is very exclusive when referring her “statement pieces” (as she calls them). “From a check-print oversized blazers to polka dot pieces, from vinyl pants to a shearling jacket, I feel that I am already on point”.
Within Fashion, and having in mind that Portugal is small country – a long time ago perceived as part of Spain – Débora is a true reminder that Fashion has been becoming borderless and she couldn’t be more in sync with this notion.“I acknowledge that if I was in London or New York I would have more opportunities, however, barriers are being broken and I know I would be one of those fighting for that iconic moment”.
All the love,
