Cynthia Rowley is a leading global lifestyle brand sold in over 60-freestanding collection boutiques, as well as in department, specialty, and online stores worldwide.
Brimming with energy, Cynthia Rowley imbues a sense of adventure in all of her design projects, be it wetsuits or her ready-to-wear. While attending the Art Institute of Chicago (where she had every intention of becoming a painter), Rowley fell into fashion when a local department store buyer discovered her on the train. That initial interest gave Cynthia the confidence to move to NYC where she went on to win numerous accolades including a CFDA Award as well as Designer of the Year at the American Image Awards last spring. She is a best-selling author and has appeared on TV shows such as Project Runway, Letterman, The Today Show, and Celebrity Jeopardy.
The Cynthia Rowley brand currently includes sportswear and related accessories with additional categories including swimsuits, wetsuits, beauty, jewelry, fragrance, socks, office supplies, tech accessories, Rowley Eyewear featuring collections for both men and women, handbags, home furnishings, and ROWLEY, a recently launched fitness collection including bags and fitness accessories. Cynthia is the author of five best-selling books and the founder of the Exhibition A, an institutionally-recognized source for contemporary art editions.
Cynthia lives in Greenwich Village with her husband and two daughters.
