Everyone is well aware that in this day and age women have the ability to do anything men can do. Throughout history, women in society have fought hard and long to receive equal treatment. Sometimes the battle was not always easy, but women received the rights they deserved. Of course, none of this would have been possible if we did not have strong women throughout our history. Women went from being stay at home “housewives” to strong independent and empowering people in work and life.
Today in society, it’s all about the power that women have. Fashion is a great way to show empowerment towards women. When you look good you feel good, right? Every woman knows that when you have on your finest most impeccable outfit you feel like a complete boss ready to rule the world. Rose’s Fashion House in Taos believes strongly in that message as well. In this comfy little shop with clothes, jewelry, and other accessories of top quality, browsing the racks and finding that perfect and powerful outfit has never been easier.
Owner, Rose Martinez, has always loved fashion and through this boutique, she finally gets a chance to share her love. She truly believes that fashion can be empowering for any women. In her shop, she wants to truly inspire women. Throughout her store, she has little quotes all of the walls that are meant to give women inspiration when trying to pick out the perfect pieces.
Rose’s Fashion House has such a wide variety of clothing, shoes, and accessories that all portray a very stylish persona. The inventory that is on display ranges from blouses, work ensembles, prom dresses, etc. Anything a woman needs to rock the world can be found at this special boutique. Even with so many different pieces to choose from, Martinez says her favorite garment would have to be the classic ‘little black dress’. She knows that having this dress has been an essential part of a women’s wardrobe for years. The dress is so simple yet can be worn for so many different occasions. In the store, there is not just one of these dresses, but multiple selections that woman can choose from.
Martinez is new to being a shop owner, and her goal is to have more knowledge in different areas of design and fashion consulting that she can bring to her business. She wants to help women find their inner beauty through clothes and be able to wear pieces that represent who they truly are. Everyone woman needs those special numbers that make them feel extra fierce. She has always been a very creative person and credits that to her being able to have an impeccable eye for fashion and putting pieces together that help women look and feel their best.
She knows the skill and time it takes to making looks perfect because before starting this shop she was a skilled seamstress. She would design her own blouses with simple patterns and comfortable fabric for women and girls. From her creativity and knowledge of fashion design, she is able to be able to throw pieces together and get creative with wardrobe selections. Since Martinez knows how the fashion side works, the hardest part of this store was the business aspect. She had trouble at first promoting and understanding how to get the name out for her business through different types of networking. She eventually figured out more and joined Las Comadres in Commerce; this she says was the smartest business move she has made. Through this group, she was able to network easier and promote the store.
The group is full of strong empowered business women that Martinez feels honored to be apart of. All the women are so supportive of one another and all believe in the same cause of bringing inner strength and beauty out of women. They believe every woman have something strong and special insider of her and hope everyone women can believe that as well.
