Rose Goldthwait


About Rose Goldthwait 


Growing up on a commune in the mountains of Montana, Rose developed a strong sense of community, an appreciation for nature, and a revolutionary spirit, traits that would later shape her fashion brand and career.

Rose spent her formative years with the silence of the forest, the stillness of the cabin, and a feeling of simplicity. But when it was time to move back to the city, Rose moved to DC to attend the University of Maryland in College Park for Clinical Psychology. While in DC, Rose became involved in the the nightlight and club scene. It was then that she had a spiritual awakening and realized she didn’t want to pursue her degree, but become a fashion designer. So Rose applied to fashion schools all over the country and chose FIDM in San Francisco, packing all of her belongings into a duffel bag and taking Amtrak from DC to Oakland. The rest, as they say, is history. Since then, she’s worked for private label fashion studios in NYC, major brands, and worked with multiple startups since then, always creating and making her own way.

Temple Ro was born out of a desire to empower women through connecting to their physical bodies. A style that is a little boho and a little festival, Temple Ro is fierce, ethical fashion with a compassionate heart, committed to American Manufacturing and cruelty-free fabrics.
