ROSES ARE RED is all about silk dresses and silk feelings.

A luxury collection of day-to-night silk dresses and clothing for women who choose high production quality, pure fabrics and elegant lifestyle. Made in Athens, the ROSES ARE RED philosophy focuses on structural design and draws its inspiration from poetry.

The name of the brand is inspired by the love couplet "Roses are red, Violets are blue". Just as this couplet is the beginning of an incomplete poem, challenging you to continue the rhyme, ROSES ARE RED garments are made for you to continue their story, wearing them and living in their silk touch. Poetry meets fine garments, giving the freedom of silky feel, both on skin and mind.



We use European silk • Our cotton and linen fabrics are manufactured in Nafpaktos in Southern Greece • Our laces are produced in Athens • Our prints are made in Como of Italy • We entirely design, handcraft & produce in Athens.
