About Charlotte Ronson
Born in London into an artistic family and raised in New York, Charlotte Ronson followed the tradition by developing her own unique style at an early age. In 2000, Ronson launched her first collection, C. Ronson, that gained instant recognition and the attention of renowned publications. In May 2002, Ronson opened her flagship boutique in New York’s hip Nolita neighborhood.
In 2005, Aaron Nir joined C.Ronson as president and the collection was re-named “Charlotte Ronson” - a natural evolution of the brand and an accurate reflection of who Charlotte is and what she and her customer want to wear. In late 2009, Charlotte and Aaron became partners and established Charlotte Ronson International headquartered in New York City. With Charlotte Ronson's sense of style and Aaron Nir's savvy business sense this dynamic team has created a powerful brand with widespread recognition and huge potential.
Charlotte Ronson is becoming one of the most sought after American womenswear designers and her New York Fashion Week runway shows under the Tents at Bryant Park is a must see show. Her success has also lead to design deals with some of America’s largest, respected retailers and has catapulted her into the spotlight. In 2008, Ronson designed Play by C. Ronson, a diffusion line exclusive to Urban Outfitters, sold in over 100 of their retail stores nationwide and online. Ronson and JCPenney have signed a long-term deal with the Texas-based retailer with a full contemporary sportswear collection. I [Heart] Ronson for JCPenney made its debut in Spring 2009 hitting 600 of Penney’s stores as well as their online site and catalogues.
