Michelle Rose Jorgensen
Designer and owner of Rose Mille
Interests: Michelle’s creative passion was evident at a very early age, sewing and gluing and knotting since she was a child - all the while developing her own distinct style. A versatile designer, from retail and residential interiors, including her twelve year old shop “Rose Mille”, to award winning booths and now websites. Michelle also designs pillows, fabric flowers, ornaments, hats, purses, and jewelry, and has recently developed vintage graphic designs for her signature note cards, papers and stationery. Michelle has taught various classes across the United States for over 15 years including hat-making, sewing, hand stitched flowers, and redesigned vintage jewelry, as well as giving lectures on “Elements of Design”, and “Introduction to Textiles”. Her approach is unique and her simply elegant vintage style is unmistakable.
