BECKY ROSENBERG, founder
Growing up in a creative family environment, Becky was inspired at an early age by the worlds of Fashion, Art and Design. Becky’s experience through the influential periods of the 1970's and 1980’s, an era of decadence and individuality, was the seed of using fashion as her personal vehicle for expression and identity.
Originally from New England, Becky continued her journey to Chicago to study Art History, Arts Management and Marketing. She later moved Los Angeles, where Becky learned the retail, wholesale and buying trades of business. While managing one of LA's top retail design outlets, Becky developed her relationships with designers and recognized the demand for independently designed products. Realizing she was a voice to bring the designer’s craft to the marketplace, BUTIK showroom was born. Becky’s quest to find the new forever strengthens her commitment to all designers as she empowers them to be seen, heard, and celebrated in the marketplace.
