“To be honest, luxury is time and attention to detail.”
Rosemin Madhavji is the Queen of fashion enterprises. At Hania Kuzbari, we’ve been drawn to her (and her stunning jewelry collection) for some time now. Rosemin’s relationships with Toronto and Dubai, and her luxury design expertise, make her an obvious muse to feature. However, it is her support of worldwide women and sustainability that made us so excited to talk to her for the Hania Kuzbari Journal. The first we
asked Rosemin what her favourite Hania Kuzbari piece is, she answered:
“I love the long Horseshoe necklace!”
Whether she’s sharing her success on Instagram, posting a picture of a stunning outfit or tweeting an inspirational quote; Rosemin is a huge influence within the fashion world. She was recently celebrated in Hello India’s annual Luxury issue and across her 20 year career she has worked with the likes of Tom Ford, Burberry and Gucci.
Currently she is running the company she founded, RR & Co. Bespoke Luxury Management, and hosts Bazaar Beauty and Indigo Living Talk Show. She does all of this whilst living the life that every influencer dreams of; attending celebrity charity galas, press dinners and fashion shows regularly.
“I am a Global Citizen, yes for sure.”
The Canadian-born businesswoman worked in retail before relocating to England to study Fashion Management at the London College of Fashion. In 2007, she took to Dubai where she launched one of the most influential bespoke luxury management firms in the Middle East, offering a plethora of services including styling, brand advisory and niche events.
Rosemin often showcases her international adventures in locations such as Hyderabad and Seoul. Her support of global charities and helping women in developing countries is another factor that truly makes her a Global Citizen.
“Luxury products have intelligent design, are functional and beautifully crafted.”
She has worked directly with Hermes, Prada, Chanel and Roger Vivier on special projects and her expert eye for luxury products has helped Rosemin to build the branding for countless companies.
Whilst in London, Rosemin interned at Sotheby’s, as well as the Burberry Press Office. Following her graduation, she was approached by Tom Ford, which allowed her career to soar. At Tom Ford, Rosemin began to delve into the world of design processes, brand management and business. These skills took Rosemin to some of the most respected designers in the world; Clare Waight Keller, Stefano Pilati, Frida Giannini, Alessandra Facchinietti and Christopher Bailey are just a few.
A testament to Rosemin’s talent is her ability to transform any brand. Before moving to Dubai she was appointed as the European PR Director at Juicy Couture, where she was tackled with taking the label beyond the velour tracksuits.
Rosemin has been featured in Best Dressed lists by Harper's Bazaar and Flair Magazine and her social media style is praised by her 118,000 followers. Her influence knows no bounds, reportedly Christian Louboutin has designed and named one of his red-soled pieces after her. Her non-stop social media presence has also secured her exclusive collaborations with Matches Fashion, Tod’s, NARS and Tory Burch.
“My evening signature jewelry look is a cocktail ring on my index finger. I always need to have earrings on.”
A style inspiration, Rosemin has also been listed as one of the 50 Most Influential Women by Arabian Business. Her knowledge of the industry is unquestionable but her drive and vision towards a more sustainable fashion future are even more admirable.
“Fashion and trends go up and down. The one thing that is constant is our planet. I don't think a change in the industry will happen overnight, but you will see progress and progress is a good thing.”
It’s sometimes hard to see a sustainable future for fast-fashion, however Rosemin believes retailers “will start being eco-friendly, with their packaging and more.” As Rosemin is our featured muse, we wanted to know what her favourite gems are and what are her thoughts on jewelry styling.
“You will always see me with a diamond solitaire or grey pearls. Jewelry should always enhance my personal style - not take it over.”
