baily ann rose
wildly rose up on Ute land,
on the legendary Battle Mountain in Red Cliff, Colorada,
learning to knit in 4-H clubs from her Mamma Rose.
Been practicing “sustainable fashion” as a muse & artist for 16 years as an adult,
starting in Boulder throwing fashion, film, & art parties with friends & their musician lovers & brothers.
muse + artist
healing fashion
weaving dreams into the fabric of reality
creative waste manager 
( designer )
storyteller 
filmmaker
TAILOR 
GARMENT WORKER
knitter + crocheter +needle worker = fiber artist = magic maker
currently practicing teaching myself machine knitting, 
until i can make enough money to move to ancestral homelands calling me back in Calabria & Sicilia, 
& hire Siri Mattsson
as my knitwear designer
& make Fibershed knits there in Italia & here in Coloradia 
(jus' made that Sheiße up 4 y'all kisses)
( she / her / pumpkin : b.a.rose’s preferred non-gendered term of endearment )
 
b. a. rose collections have been wildly inaccessible in the past ‘cos the lil punk bumpkin designer artist & muses
love tits hanging out, lotsa sidebook, cock socks, wardrobe malfunctions, raw edges, ugly finishings on beautiful bodies, unwearable art made of semi truck innertube tires found on brighton boulevard before it was fucked, and the like that is “Fashion.”
fashion your reality
be a rose 
love your clothes
as your second skin
love within
