INF / Network: Meet Nadia Rosa

Meet our INF / Network, a highly curated roster of some of Australia’s most respected voices in fashion, beauty and lifestyle. We will work closely with these women to bring you a fresh perspective, and offer them an opportunity to create content outside of their traditional categories. Perhaps you have always loved Sara Donaldson’s style, but you're keen to know more about her beauty routine? Or maybe you love Kelly Muller’s parenting advice, but want to know more about her fashion tips? We’re opening the door to give these inspirational women an opportunity to share more with you.

It’s time to meet… Nadia Rosa. Co-founder of Maison D'Amore and Isabeau, and director of CO. CREATIVE AGENCY.

I am very hands on and am extremely passionate about what I do so I like to be involved with every step as much as possible. I have a lot to do with everything that goes on behind the scenes, from developing a scent for Maison D’Amore, to packaging each individual candle to be sent off to customers. I’m a perfectionist and I want to make sure everyone is getting the best experience when receiving product. 

My style is very comfortable and relaxed, I work best when I’m feeling myself. A good statement pair of earrings or heels will usually do the trick if I have somewhere special to be.

It’s very important that I surround myself with motivated and creative people who I can learn from and who inspire me.   

A good film or book inspires me. My go-to film at the moment is A Bigger Splash—it had a lot to do with our inspiration behind Isabeau. 

Mornings I always start with a green tea and a walk if possible. In the evening I finish my day with Pilates or a swim at the beach when I can—it’s the best way to de-stress after a busy day. 

My mum has always told me ‘Treat everyone the way you want to be treated'. Things will happen in life you can’t control, allow them to make you stronger and remember to keep a positive mind.  

My advice... 'Jump in the deep end, you will learn a lot from the challenges that are thrown at you. You never know what you’re capable of unless you give it your best shot.'

Fragrance and interiors. If I had the time I would love to be an interior stylist. I spend hours reading interior magazines and scrolling through interior websites. I had the best time styling my new home and am always looking for new pieces to add to my collection. 

With my family and friends, nothing makes me feel better than being surrounded with people I love. I am very fortunate to work in a field I love so when I’m not enjoying my spare time, I’m working. 

Launching new robe line Isabeau. I have been working extremely hard the past couple of months with my business partner Emmi to get this off the ground. We have created a product we really love and can’t wait to get it out there. 

I see people enjoying something I have created. There is no greater joy than seeing people using your product. I love the opportunity to travel, I try to get away as much as possible, and visit new places, and meet new people. 

I try to take all negatives and turn them into a positive. You can’t control what goes wrong in life or business but you can certainly learn from it.
