Rosalina Pong is a Manhattan based fashion designer and the creator of her namesake collection of women's designer coats. After graduating from Parsons School of Design, she worked for Adrienne Vittadini and Michael Kors Collections before launching her own collection of women’s outerwear designed and produced in New York City.

Rosalina’s unique sensibility for fabric, texture and detail form the cornerstone of her aesthetic which she describes as “classic with clean lines” and “ladylike with an edge”. Her own obsession with the perfect coat is what led her to focus on outerwear. “People frequently overlook the fact that coats are what others see them in most of the time and that the are just as critical in making an impression as the outfit hidden underneath.”

Inspired by 1950’s silhouettes and the line between masculine and feminine; her coats were designed with the busy woman’s lifestyle in mind. Combining fine wools and menswear inspired details - Rosalina Pong’s coats keep today’s discerning woman stylish from day to night.

The designer introduces new styles and fabrications each year creating pieces that are both timeless and modern. Her coats accentuate and add the finishing touch to every woman’s individual style.

Living in NYC, one of the biggest pedestrian cities in the world, Rosalina understands theneed for a distinctive, warm coat. Rosalina knew that the key to a successfully designe coat would be something that would surpass trends. She decided to create her own coat, the Prima Donna, as her first prototype. It had functional oversized pockets, practical interior pockets and a removable collar. After wearing the coat around the city and throughout her travels, people began asking where they could buy the garment. Thus Rosalina Pong was born. A coat suitable for the younger downtown crowd as well as the working professional. A design combination of midcentury and minimalism….timeless design. RosalinaPong’s coats are available for purchase directly through her own e-commerce at www.rosalinapong.com
