Linda Rowe Thomas Spring 2016 ‘Romas’
Fashion Designer Linda Rowe Thomas is an American fashion designer who has been in the industry more than 20 years. She is famousfor her haute couture eveningwear.
Her Spring 2016 Collection showcased dresses and jumpsuits in solid color, flower print, and even some beaded detail at the Alvin Alley Theater in Midtown Manhattan during New York Fashion Week.
When I asked what was her inspiration during our interview Linda Revealed, "I thought royalty, elegance and so that is what I went with. I have a daughter now that is into fashion so that is where the fun flirty dresses came from. It was a fusion of my daughter and myself. There were twenty dresses in the collection. I am really proud of this because a lot of the beading I did by hand. Nothing was manufactured. Everything that was on the runway I sewed by hand myself."
Designer Linda Rowe Thomas's first love is fashion but her heart clearly beats for philanthropy. As an active member and new chair-elect of the Little Rock Junior League, Fine Arts Club Board Member, and Excutive Director of Designing Hope, Thomas has solidified her role among the many community leaders dedicated to empowering the community. Slated official designer of the Arkansas Black Hall of Fame, for the past 4 years Romás by Linda Rowe Thomas has designed the gowns worn by the award presenters. Thomas's designs grace the runway for worthy causes across the nation. Thomas continues to receive national recognition for her philanthropy service and design accomplishments.
"The greatest gift is giving. I feel that we create a great disservice when put in the position to be leaders, achievers and overcomers and we do not reach back to assist others. One of the most rewarding things in my life is being a mother and to be able to use my love of fashion as a tool to empower someone esle. I was raised in a family where giving was second nature. Whether it be encouraging our youth, the loss of my mother to heart disease, or having friends personally affected by autism, ALS or cancer, it makes me proud to believe in and support so many wonderful organizations.
