Today’s interview is with San Francisco-based CEO and Creative Director Nishika de Rosairo. Nishika draws on the idea of connectedness, power and transformation in her designs. A naturally gifted artist and dancer throughout her life, she started designing clothes at a young age. Fashion has always been her creative touchstone and way of life, fueling her imagination and storytelling. She grew up embracing the world and its cultures, living on four continents and traveling to 40+ countries.
With an MBA and focus on change and innovation in organizations, prior to founding dE ROSAIRO, Nishika spent nine years as a strategic advisor to Fortune 500 / Silicon Valley companies including Apple, Salesforce, Deloitte Consulting, Levi and others. The experience she gained was invaluable to realizing her childhood dream of founding her own designer label. Nishika currently sits on a Board for entrepreneurial development and leadership called StartUp Women, supported by the Blackstone Charitable Foundation and Google for Entrepreneurs. She also leads Business Mentoring Connections at the University of Washington, which she founded nine years ago. And most recently, Nishika created dR Business Advisory, which is focused on enabling design entrepreneurs to think like CEOs.
The dE ROSAIRO brand offers a blend of Nishika’s passion for design and her natural aptitude for business and entrepreneurship, with the ultimate goal of shaping a new vocabulary of sophisticated, everyday luxury for the modern woman.
