Amanda Ross

Amanda Ross I became friends with the stylist Amanda Ross when we worked together at Harper’s Bazaar (she was the market director) and profiled her in the early days of KIC. Amanda has enviable personal style—elegant uptown girl with a twist. She’s not a slave to trends and has perfected the art of mixing classic pieces with bohemian accessories culled from her global travels. Now, Amanda has taken the next step and designed a line of jewelry, and a fantastic fur hat inspired by her finds.

I caught up with the busy fashion stylist to hear about her projects.

ar-design The jewelry line, Grossé by Amanda Ross, launched in 2013. This collection of flowers and butterflies from March ’14 was inspired by a 2008 trip to St Petersburg with a stop at Nabokov’s house—-he loved butterflies.

The Natural Coyote ‘Amanda’ hood with leather ties and pom pom details is available for order at Pologeorgis $750.  212.563.2250

The bib necklace was designed by Adele Dejak who is based in Nairobi. Amanda became familiar with Dejak’s work when she did a story for Departures on Kenyan jewelers. “I immediately bought an arm cuff that I haven’t taken off, and I found this necklace at Camp Ya Kanzi in Chulu Hills, Kenya”. 

Next up, Amanda is designing a necklace with a Maasai tribesman she met in Lamu that will be sold on her own site. TBC.

  • I’m feeling extremely stylish after seeing this. I too wear a Kendall Conrad Cincha cuff with a black dress, instead of more precious jewelry! Her fall picks are beautiful too.

  • I like how the black dress accentuates the Adele Dejak bib necklace. Nicely styled!

  • I love Amanda Ross, she is just so stylish but in a not trying too hard, attainable way. She has such a great eye and mixes things up- a little artisan jewellery or handbag with a designer dress or maybe a J crew T with a fabulous I Prezzi Dipinti cashmere scarf.

    Its always great to read your profiles on stylists/designers.
