Listening to Rosetta Getty talk about fashion, it’s difficult not to be captivated by the passion she exudes for her chosen métier.
This fall, Getty will launch a collection for women just like herself. To a wider audience, her name may stir different associations — she is married to Balthazar Getty, the actor, musician and scion of the notable West Coast family, which is now largely known for its philanthropy and commitment to the arts. Those who expect the Los Angeles native to be another socialite looking to design as a pastime between lunches and benefit galas, though, will find her to be anything but.
