Aurora Pets: Can you tell us a bit about rororiri
Rita: rororiri was founded in November 2015. The brand rororiri accentuates the bond between dogs and their humans. Every time I see a dog wearing any clothing or accessories, I can feel the love and care.
Aurora Pets: What inspired rororiri?
Rita: Since I graduated from fashion school in 2013, I have been working on my own women’s wear line. In October 2014, my husband and I got our very first (furry) baby - Rosie, to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary. I immediately fell in love and started to make clothes for her just for fun. After many more designs and fittings, rororiri started. In November 2015, rororiri.com was launched.

Aurora Pets: Where did the brand name come from?
Rita: rororiri comes from Rosie and Rita.
Aurora Pets: When starting a new collection, where do you begin?
Rita: rororiri designs are inspired by art forms of any kind. It could be a painting, a little girl walking while holding her mother’s hand, a stranger’s outfit, a small detail of a costume from an exhibition, etc. As a designer, anything can inspire. I sometimes begin with a colour story, a pattern, or textures of the textiles.
Aurora Pets: Which designers have been the biggest influences on you?
Rita: Lee McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, Raf Simon, Cristóbal Balenciaga, Azzedine Alaïa, etc.
Aurora Pets: What was your first creation for Rosie?
Rita: It was a white dress with cable knit collar and lace ruffle.
Aurora Pets: What is your favourite activity to do with Rosie?
Rita: Rosie loves the beach! Watching her running free and wild always puts a smile on my face. More recently, she’s enjoying biking with us too.
