Unbridled excellence, equestrian inspired
Rönner Design is an independent, family-owned fashion house and lifestyle brand specialising in equestrian-inspired, ready-to-wear womenswear and accessories.
Founded in 2010 by sisters Carin and Jessica Stellabatti Rönner, their collections are increasingly receiving international recognition for their classic designs, keen attention to detail and finest quality fabrics, often featuring their portfolio of iconic, equestrian prints.
The Rönner philosophy combines a timeless elegance and style with practicality, with their pieces eminently transferable from day-to-night, private enclosure at the Polo to family Sunday lunches. Every collection is an evolution – showcasing fresh takes on their staple pieces, whilst at the same time introducing new designs to refresh and reflect the latest trends.
This creation of a Rönner ‘lifestyle’ has been inspired, in large part, by the girls’ mother, Ines Rönner, who left her native Germany as a young girl and came to Colombia where she indulged in her love of horses and established herself as a cornerstone of the social scene, opening a successful tack business and regularly hosting visitors from overseas.
This passion was passed to her children who share her love of horse riding and fashion. And with Rönner Design they have been able to harness their European roots and immerse themselves in their love of all-things-equestrian, whilst at the same time adding a dash of Latin American flair to deliver collections unlike any others in the marketplace.
Now launching their fifth collection, Rönner Design demonstrates a renewed commitment to designing for fashion-conscious women seeking transitional pieces that offer stylish solutions for a number of social situations, both personal and professional. From effortless day dresses to chic shirts and scarves, the vibrant prints and materials brighten up any outfit. And with complementary bags, boots and other accessories also available, clients can start to adopt the Rönner lifestyle for themselves.
Ines Rönner Stellabatti
Arriving in Colombia from her native Germany for what was meant to be a short, two-week holiday, Ines Rönner fell in love with the Latin way of life and never returned to live in Europe. A keen horsewomen, she embraced her love of all-things equestrian, competing and ultimately opening her own successful business, Equitana. Her passion for horses and horseriding combining with her drive and determination to succeed has been the greatest influence on her two daughters when they came to establish Rönner Design. Today, Ines is a partner in the business, offering strategic advice and continuing to inspire.
Carin Stellabatti Rönner
Rönner Design enables Carin Stellabatti Rönner to indulge her two great loves – fashion and horses. Immersed in equestrian influences from a young age, and inheriting her mother’s passion, she was determined to realise her dreams to create a fashion house that catered for fashion-conscious women who shared her outlook and philosophy for stylish yet practical pieces. With European roots and a Latin American upbringing, Carin was keen to develop a global perspective that celebrated her German, Italian and Colombian heritage whilst at the same time enhancing her understanding of different international markets. She has spent a number of years studying design, initially in Bogotá’s prestigious Los Andes University, and later in New York at F.I.T where she further honed her skills by specialising in Fashion Design. But her heart lay in her native Colombia and she returned in 2010 to co-found Rönner Design with her sister. Highly creative and innovative, Carin is forever seeking inspiration for new designs and evolving the collections to experiment with new textures, prints and design propositions. She lives and breathes the Rönner philosophy, winning supporters amongst her growing international client base.
Jessica Stellabatti Rönner
Jessica is a true entrepreneur – inheriting the requisite drive, determination and business know-how to transform ideas into reality from her parents, both of whom have successfully established their own companies in Colombia. A graduate from El CESA, Bogotá, Jessica can marry her learned appreciation of finance and professionalism to an innate passion for design and creative flair, making her the perfect complement to Carin’s design direction. Determined to establish Rönner Design on the world-stage, the sisters work hand-in-hand to evolve the strategy and reinforce the credentials of this burgeoning lifestyle brand.
