Rorò Roma was born in 2017 from an idea of Carla and Romana Mastrella, mother and daughter with a strong and decisive style. Each Rorò creation is a unique piece, made with high quality fabrics and materials strictly Made in Italy.
How was your passion for fashion born?
Carla: Fashion is an instinct that I have always had, and that with Rorò has finally taken on a concrete form.
Romana: I was lucky enough to grow up in a family of creatives, artists, lovers of art and beauty. Consequently, I have always had a strong passion for beauty and for all the expressions in which it occurs, including fashion.
How do you define the aesthetics of your creations?
The lines of the Rorò bags are simple and essential. What makes them recognizable are the materials: cotton, silk, velvet, leather, passementarie combined in always different ways. Behind Rorò there is also the commitment to a more sustainable fashion. This is why we often use leftovers of fabrics and materials that would otherwise be lost, to allow them to continue living.
Three words to describe your creations.
What are your inspirations in life?
We are constantly looking for beauty. Inspiration can come from an object, a work of art, a journey, an encounter. We often let ourselves be guided by the fabrics themselves, with which we love to experiment with new combinations of materials, patterns and colors.
What story do you want to tell with your creations?
We believe in a timeless idea of fashion. The Rorò bags are handmade with the materials we choose personally and carefully. We are not interested in following seasonal trends, in aesthetics or timing. Our production takes time, but it is the slowness of the craftsmanship that produces quality bags, designed to last, to be kept and handed down.
What is the most important thing you have learned?
The most important thing is to focus on work and be constant, keeping the curiosity and the desire to learn alive. We want to create something authentic, without compromising our philosophy and staying true to our values.
New projects or ideas you are working on?
In May we started our online store, reaching an important milestone for us. We are now focused on making new models, but for the future we do not set limits. We want to keep creating new things: bags, clothes and, why not, furnishing items.
