Let's get to know Tony Vincente, the designer behind Rossario George.
Branding and the creation of Rossario George.
Tony Vincente, What Inspired you to become a fashion Designer?The universe made this possible. Since 2009, I’ve been a business owner specializing in home décor. In July of 2017, Vida reached out to me and asked if I would like to work with them. I jumped at the chance!
I have always been a fan of fashion and in the back of my mind, I had dreams of creating items ready for the runways.I had no formal training and didn’t have the slightest idea on how to even start, but as I said earlier, the universe makes things happen as they are meant too.
With Vida, I finally had my avenue to making my dream a reality. Funny thing, shortly after, Shoes of Prey reached out as well and asked if I would like to design shoes with them. It was then I knew it was time to brand and begin the processes that gave birth to Rossario George.
You are a talented designer, and are in partnership with Vida, a company who has collaborated with icon Cher, designer Todd Anthony Tyler, and many others. Tell me about how you began a partnership with Vida?
First, thank you so much for the compliment. All my designs come from my love of beauty, and it makes my heart sing when people respond so positively to them. I was on cloud 9 when Vida reached out to me and asked if I would be a designer for them.
I saw who the other designers were and I thought to myself, "Will I be good enough?" To be honest, I hated the first items I created, but I learned quickly what I wanted to create. As we are enjoying amazing sales with our spring/summer collection, I feel I found my stride and look forward to unveiling what’s next!
What inspired you to start your own Design Company, Rossario George? What inspired the name of your company?
The stars were aligned. I had a company producing my clothing and accessories and another for my shoes. I am a Marketing guy (outside of Rossario George), so everything that occurs in my life is an opportunity. Regarding the name, it is an homage to my partner's late father, Rossario George Scumaci. This guy was the epitome of style in his day, and he left a lasting impact on everyone he touched. That impact continues even today with his memory. This was the same feeling I wanted for my brand. I wanted my brand to be something that defines trends not follows them, has a heart and finally who’s fashions are and always will be timeless.
I'm intrigued by the beauty of this leather statement clutch and matching sleeveless top. Is there anything you would like to tell us about these designs?
No…HAHAHA so kidding! RG Majestic is our newest “signature” collection. (we actually have 4: Rossario George Signature, Casa Scumaci, Water Maiden and now the RG Majestic) Every season these collections provide a template for evolution. They all have unique patterns which I can mutate and shape color and even other patterns around yet keep the familiar touch that defines the collection. RG Majestic is one of my favorites as it's simply based on our logo which in itself is a work of art.
