A minute with Andrea Rots Fashion Designer and owner of ROTS

Where do you live?
I live with my soul mate in the heart of Nicosia

Best childhood memory?
Days at the beach with my family

Most frequented restaurant and absolute favourite dish? What food would you really turn your nose up to?
Orfeas Tavern, because I’m Cypriot and meze is in my blood. I hate cooked liver.

What did you have for breakfast?
Freddo Espresso. Black

Would you class yourself as a day or night person? What’s your idea of the perfect night/day out?
Both, it’s all about a fully productive day being followed by a well deserved evening with friends and wine

Best book ever read?
Hmm… its not about a particular book for me but expanding my collection. I like searching for inspiration from many perspectives, and its interesting how revisiting a particular book may have a different impact on you, so my favourite book keeps changing

Favourite film of all time?
Blade Runner. Elephant man. Creative productions that redefine the design techniques and social outlooks of their time.

Favourite holiday destination? What’s your dream trip?
Iceland. Dream trip is soul searching in Asia.

What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?
Lofi Hip Hop

What is always in your fridge?
Vegetables and eggs… and beer

Dream house: rural retreat or urban dwelling? Where would it be, what would it be like?
Rural Retreat. A glasshouse in the middle of a forest, but close to civilization please

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
Dali, Freud and Jesus to discuss social issues

If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?
Have an amazing party with all the people I love to celebrate our lives

What is your greatest fear?

Tell me a joke…
Unfortunately I can’t really remember any, ever.

ROTS the brand is a limited-edition, iconoclastic brand. A mysteriously, seductive juxtaposition of the norm. Focused on women’s wear often times fusing the two genders, ROTS offers a ready-to-wear line ROTSwear as well as the exclusive made-to-measure line ROTS collections. Andrea’s next collection, FW 18-19, will be launched at the beginning of December. Stay tuned
