According to swimwear designer Vanessa Jean Simmons, “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under Heaven.” The founder of Pastry and now the producer of Rose, Simmons is known globally. With two MTV shows, “Run’s House” and “Daddy’s Girls,” and her degree in communications from St. John’s University, Simmons has succeeded in both her personal and professional life. With her sister Angela, she founded the ultra-popular clothing, sneaker and handbag line Pastry. Their company has grown into a $70 million brand in only five years.
With the success of Pastry, Simmons is established as a fashion industry powerhouse. Her passion for designing fashion has produced a one-of-a-kind lingerie line, Rose by Vanessa Jean. “A rose is reminiscent of a woman. It’s very beautiful to look at yet, like a rose which has thorns, a woman has flaws and imperfections that make us imperfectly perfect,” said Jean. Simmons knows her way around a tough economy. Although consumer trends may shift, Simmons understands the dynamics of strategic placement and hard work.
The daughter of Rev. Run, niece of the business mogul Russell Simmons and fashion icon Kimora Lee Simmons, she is quite mature and very talented. Her swimwear and intimate lingerie line sort of intertwine. These delicate garments reflect a woman’s shape, individuality and personality. For Rose by Vanessa, Simmons has joined forces with multimillionaire, fashion mogul and “Shark” Daymond John.
Rose by Vanessa Jean offers superior quality and signature fabrics with cutting-edge design. Details include bejeweled swimwear and lingerie with jeweled accents. These pieces—great for pool parties and special occasions—are made for women of all sizes. The company’s mission is to provide women with a fashion-forward brand that understands the needs of every woman. Rose by Vanessa Simmons wants to help women feel comfortable with trendsetting style and glamour.
