Hi, I’m Rosie, the owner of BBR – Bikinis by Rosie. I was born and raised in the Northern Murmansk Oblast, Russia. I came to the USA when I was 19 with a big dream of building my future in the place of endless opportunities. Growing up in a frugal lower middle class family, we always made EVERYTHING at home, from scratch and that included clothes too. I always knew I had a calling for fashion design since I was little, it all started with me sewing clothes for my dolls from scraps of fabric that I could find around the house, then eventually I started sewing my own clothes and most of the time I would get in trouble for spending too much time sewing, I was constantly told to “just stop”. My parents didn’t believe that fashion design will put me on a strong financial path, they never considered this to be a serious career, so I followed their advise and in 2004 I graduated from MSTU (Murmansk State Technical University), Russia with Bachelors in World Economics and International Business Relationships major.
It was only later in my 30’s I decided to pursue my passion and discovered the love for bodybuilding. I was able to connect the dots and incorporate the love for the sport with design. In 2019 I competed in my first bodybuilding competition. After purchasing a competition suit, I was not completely satisfied with its fit. I could tell it was not made for me. I didn’t have to think twice, I simply started with some rough sketches, fabric and a sewing machine in my kitchen and made my very first competition suit! I was hooked, I couldn’t stop since then, and BBR was born! Early on I learned the importance of having an impeccably fitted, well-designed quality suit and how it could help you bring your very best package on stage and compliment your hard- earned physique. One size does not fit all, here at BBR no suit is made the same. Every suit is handmade, hand stoned from scratch and custom-fitted for you!
I am self-taught and I consider myself a "forever student," eager to learn and evolve every day. My mission is to motivate and inspire other women like myself while helping them to bring their best look to stage.
