Spring 15 is already in Fashion showrooms & rose prints are quickly becoming our fave among this season's expected array of floral prints. Walk into our Gift & Home showrooms and you'll see this rose motif is also strong among gifts, home decor, holiday & lifestyle collections. The look: vintage, romantic & ultra-feminine.
