The designer of the notoriously luxurious and highly coveted cashmere pieces initially got her start designing childrenswear. Originally from Idaho, Ryan Roche studied fashion with a speciality in knitwear at San Francisco's Academy of Art University and launched her children's line, Mor Mor Rita, in 2004 after she moved to NYC. With some urging from fans of her tiny designs, she launched her first adult-sized, ready-to-wear collection in 2011. She is committed to sustainable production and has been working with an all-woman cooperative in Nepal for over a decade.
