Rosa Loves is a local clothing label created by Flagler alumnus Mike Fretto. The shirts have designs relating to the cause that they’re supporting, including St. Augustine residents, Mexican students and a South African surfing program. Though Rosa Loves has only been around for a little over five months, it has already gained national media attention.
Recently, the founders of Rosa Loves went to the Oscars. American Apparel donated 300 promo T-shirts for them to give away, which they used as conversation starters. They have been in touch with several media contacts since, but nothing has solidified yet.
The Closet, on Cordova Street, sells the Rosa Loves line.
