London-based, Rosh Mahtani studied French and Italian at Oxford University. Upon graduating in 2012, she was inspired to create modern heirlooms, born from the literature she had studied: Dante Alighieri’s “Divine Comedy,” in particular.
After graduating she spent two years interning at Harper’s Bazaar, luxury travel company Mr. & Mrs. Smith and working as a Visual Merchandiser at Avenue32.com; all the while, dreaming of her collection, and creating it by night. With no formal training and a vehement obsession with the idea of melancholy and imperfection, Alighieri was officially launched in 2014.
Rosh wanted to create a brand that is firmly rooted in literature and travel, each piece is related to one of Dante’s 101 poems; that tells a story of whirlwind adventures, battered creatures, scraggy landscapes
and passionate mistakes. Rosh is creative director of Alighieri Jewellery, and is currently also writing for Luelle Magazine.
