This will be a conversation that you won’t want to miss! If you’d like to learn a little bit about Kerin and her eyewear line before the interview, check out her bio below!
Kerin Rose Gold has been pushing boundaries since 2009 with her luxury artisanal eyewear line A-Morir. As seen on the world’s biggest pop stars and sold in high-end boutiques across the globe, A-Morir sets itself apart with rebellious designs and impeccable, hand-crafted execution. Yet this trendsetting brand is just one outlet for Kerin’s irreverent and unique spirit. An upstart creator since childhood, this native New Yorker graduated with honors from NYU with a degree in Pop Culture History, linking her loves of art, music, and costuming while delving deep into the French existentialist concept of the “spectacle.” Kerin continues to connect far-flung creative dots in her adult career, whether designing the first women’s sneaker for SUPRA, starring in ad campaigns for Sebastian Professional (as their Visionary Brand Ambassador, leading to a glasses collaboration distributed in hundreds of salons around the world), writing a bi-monthly column for Nylon, or representing the US as Vogue Italia’s New Talent and Emerging Designer. Becoming an eyewear icon was never part of the plan for this multi-faceted artist, but it fits: no one sees the world quite like her.
“a-morir, the luxury eyewear and accessory line from designer Kerin Rose Gold, pioneered the trend of embellished eyewear by combining bespoke production and premium materials with aesthetic maturity and sophisticated design. What began as custom work with Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga in 2008 has evolved into a true luxury brand, whose pieces are praised by Vogue Italia as the “favorite [eyewear] brand of American stars”. Year after year, a-morir has cemented its place as the go-to brand for daring, couture-worthy sunglasses and statement pieces.
a-morir is ever experimenting and ever-expanding. New takes on old favorites came effortlessly with the launch of objects and home goods pieces. The development of a customization studio and crafting classes followed, working with corporate and private clients alike.
a-morir is a mainstay in high end and cutting edge editorials around the world, with a Who’s Who of devoted repeat clientele. Everyone from modern superstars (Beyonce, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Snoop Dogg, Nicki Minaj) to pop legends (Grace Jones, Debbie Harry of Blondie) have purchased multiple pairs of a-morir over the years. The brand’s coveted pieces are made-to-order in limited quantities, ensuring the highest level of exclusivity.”
