Roz trained in fashion at Newcastle Polytechnic (now the University of Northumbria). and graduated in the 1970s.
She then went on to launch her own fashion label “ROZ”, and at the same time sold her original designs through independent fashion boutiques of the day including Elle in Newcastle and Meander in Durham.
when Roz moved to London she worked as a fashion illustrator at Rowes of Bond St, and, most notably, Laura Ashley in Sloane Street.
Roz’s original illustrations for Laura Ashley are typical of the "dolly eyes and clear skin" look, the 'Dudu look' or ‘Biba look’ associated with the London fashion brand Biba and supermodel Twiggy.
A fashion illustrations calendar featuring nine of Roz's original drawings was produced by Laura Ashley Home in 2008. Roz went on to open her own shop “CLOZO” in Camden Passage (islington) which specialised in vintage clothing.
