ROCKY BARNES x CLEOBELLA
I first met Rocky a few years ago on one of Cleobella’s first photoshoots. The shoot took place on a horse ranch—and Rocky rode that horse like a true Goddess! At one point the horse freaked out and bucked Rocky into the air—she went flying! I completely panicked but then quickly recognized Rocky’s strength. She picked herself up with a big smile on her face and got right back on that horse. I was instantly drawn to her inner beauty and confidence; she truly has a glow about her that shines from within.
Since our first shoot together, so many years ago, I have watched Rocky flourish and completely own her space in such an admirable way. She is no doubt a bronzed beauty but what makes her presence so powerful is her genuine, down to earth demeanor. She has created an effortlessly gypset style all her own. Her deep love for travel resonates so deeply with me, it has been such a joy seeing her wandering with love all around the globe !
As fate we have it, we ran into each other in Miami during Swim Week and reconnected once again, our kindred spirits were right in line and we knew a collaboration was in the stars for us.
Being a lover of vintage herself, Rocky came to our first design meeting with a beautiful vintage Lurex dress she found while traveling through India. She has such a keen eye for elevated design, putting her soul into every piece of the design process.
Her creative spirit has taken her on countless journeys, we are so grateful she chose to be a part of ours ! We hope this collection speaks to your inner goddess, these pieces were specially designed by Rocky and I to make you radiate the beauty you carry within your gypset heart.
