Empire Rose is the artistic passion and expression of Designer and Owner Kathryn Cizeika. Tapping into the cultural zeitgeist, the Empire Rose aesthetic is a mash up of high end glamour and uber-cool street style.

Established in 1998, the label's ongoing and increasing success is testament to Cizeika's ability to create capsule collections of trans-seasonal pieces that are instantly desirable, effortlessly cool and supremely wearable.

The brand is defined by Cizeika's signature style and displays a distinctive handwriting that is evident across each collection. Living a life of both purpose and pleasure speaks to the duality of what it is to be a modern woman and resonates with lovers of the label.

Dramatic pieces that play with structure, volume and texture exude elegance and sophistication for striking entrances and events, whilst sports-luxe pieces encourage relaxation and ease for daily life and serious downtime. The combination of the two attitudes creates the signature Empire Rose style.
