We are Nic and Steff Fitzgerald, sisters from Benoni, a small town in South Africa. We now live in Switzerland, but have never lost touch with our roots. We are both passionate about doing our bit to support slow, responsible fashion and promote a more sustainable lifestyle… that is also beautiful, timeless, sexy and fun.
Troo is a platform for young, responsible designers, who support local suppliers, to create beautiful, mindfully made pieces that we love and want to share with all of you.
The first member of our Troo family is Nette Rose, the beautiful brand of intimates designed and produced by an equally beautiful woman – Megan Miller. Nette Rose intimates are handmade in Cape Town with “love, cheek and a lot of laughs”. Megan’s favourite part about lingerie is that they have been and will always be just for her… no one else can see them ….. but that’s not saying that these cuties can’t peek through your tee’s, be shown or taken off!
And then there is the lovely story about how she named Nette Rose (pronounced Nettie Rose) after her two “sensational and stylish” grandmothers, Nette, who bought her first pair of fabric scissors, and Rose, who sparked up the idea of Megan going to a fashion academy.… It was Troo love!
So there it is. Megan’s story about the name Nette Rose touched our hearts. We believe her concept of designing and hand-making everything in the country where our heart belongs, our home country, is wonderful. And these absolutely stunning, romantic and sexy intimates… we simply could not resist.
We hope you love these beauties as much as we do, and we can’t wait to introduce you to more young and inspiring designers soon!
