London-born entrepreneur Rosie Pope is the creator and designer of renowned fashion line, Rosie Pope Maternity. She is also the creator and teacher of MomPrep, which helps expecting and new moms find solutions to the challenges of motherhood. From how to find the best nanny, to selecting the right fitness class, and everything in between, Pope's maternity concierge service has helped countless women when they needed it the most.
Young Pope excelled as a ballet dancer with The London Contemporary School of Dance. She moved to New York City at the age of 18 to embark on a modeling career that led her to grace the pages of Italian Vogue and pose for photographer Steven Miesel. She then turned her sights to academics and enrolled in Columbia University on a Presidential Scholarship to study neuroscience.
In 2008, Pope birthed the idea for Rosie Pope Maternity after simply finding nowhere to shop for fashionable clothing during her own pregnancy. She now has two stores -– one in New York and one in Santa Monica. Her philosophy is for women everywhere to celebrate this time in their lives with fashions that are worthy of photographing and remembering for years to come. In 2010, having already established herself as the trusted guru for stylish mothers -- including Hollywood elite -- the idea to offer classes through MomPrep was "born." Today, she is regularly sought after by the media for her advice on style for moms and lives happily in New York City with her husband Daron and her two sons, J.R. and Wells. She has another bundle of joy on the way expected this May.
