dress--1960's from Bertie's vintage shop
--writer--her (Agri)cultural review writing just won the VOGUE.UK 2011 Talent Contest. It appears in the October Issue of Vogue UK and won her a month's paid internship at Vogue UK.
--designer--she makes her own dresses, which you can read about on her blog Clothes, Cameras and Coffee
--trooper--she responds to adversity with poise that would make Tony Robbin's drool. When she first learned she had scoliosis, she used it as an opportunity to make her own "scoliodress" inspired by the Alexander McQueen spine print from a few seasons back. You can read about it in her post TWISTED EMBRACE. And as if that's not enough, check out her "backbone" brooch.
While Roz may claim to have about 10 favorite authors, with her new Vogue Talent Contest win and an attitude in adversity like she has, it won't surprise me if someday she makes the ranks of her most admired authors: Laurie Lee, Angela Carter, or Owen Sheers.
Altamira definitely loves Roz.
