Love and Light is an Australian based collection specialising in hand knit and crochet designs. The collection uses an innovative mix of knit and crochet structures inspired by present and past pop culture. With vibrant colours and a bohemian touch, each individual piece creates it's own signature style.
Rose is the owner and creator of L&L based on the Sunshine Coast, Australia. Rose is 25 years old and started knitting when she was 5 years old, with 20 years of experience she has now turned her passion into a successful fashion label.
"Love And Light is more than just pieces of clothing. We are unique, one of a kind, something that's expressive and allows you to stand out and be confident. We are not mass produced, going against the trend of the fashion industry, playing our part for the environment. Our vision here is to lift every woman up and encourage them to be everything they can be. To dream big, to stand out of the crowd, to be yourself and not let the world dictate who you are. You are unique, and we believe you should express yourself and be all that you can be and how you've been made."
