Who says you can’t have it all?
One look at Rosanna Ocampo-Rodriguez will tell you that yes, it is possible to have it all: She juggles her thriving fashion design career with being a doting mother of two (she actually just recently gave birth to her second child) and a loving wife, powering through it all with enviable elegance and style. After launching the holiday collection of her formalwear line, ORO, Rosanna is all set to showcase her opulent, yet practical, pieces for the modern Filipina on the Metrowear Luxe runway, November 14 at Dusit Thani Manila.
Equal parts flirty and romantic, Rosanna’s penchant for lace and lady-like silhouettes allude to her favorite sun-drenched cities.
A certified beach babe, Rosanna took inspiration from her time spent traveling around scenic Mykonos, Ibiza, and idyllic Formentera for her famed resort label. The result? Pieces that add a quirky brand of panache and loads of sex appeal to a woman’s wardrobe, making it favorite of society’s loveliest. Done in decadently rich fabrics like lace and in color palettes that spell out luxury, her move into formal wear seemed like a natural progression, especially after launching her kid’s line Sansie, two years ago.

But more than just a fast expanding company, much of what makes Rosanna’s designs stand out is their ability to transcend the need of today’s modern woman. “I want my clothes to be worn by the modern woman, the woman who has many roles in society. She’s a mom, she has to go to work, she has to attend to her husband, she does so many things. So that’s what I want my clothes to do—to move with every single role.” Her luxe pieces will take you from the boardroom to family time and nights out, with their versatile silhouettes and designs.
