Rosie Carpenter

Rosie has lived and worked in Tower Hamlets for 22 years, having at one time had a workshop in the famous Cable Street Studios. She now works from her shop Sasti at 281 Portobello Road where she designs, hand-makes and sells children’s clothes.

Rosie is a successful alumna of the Prince of Wales Princes Trust Scheme and her shop has been voted one of the 50 best shops in London by Time Out. She provides a valuable and valued service for her customers, and her early experience as a qualified nanny explains her connection with the families she serves. Her painstakingly learnt tailoring skills and early career as a milliner provide a plethora of qualities, reflected in the love she invests in the creation of her garments.

“Innovation is challenging myself to learn new skills and through that, to create something new.”
