Cynthia was raised in Illinois by her parents, Ed and Clementine Rowley; her father was a science teacher, while her mother’s side dabbled in the arts. likely influenced her passion for clothes design. “Everyone on my mother’s paternal side was a painter. Cynthia informed the New York Times that her grandma painted a number of self-portraits similar to this one. “She constantly wore Chinese-style gowns, while being 100 percent Italian. It was a really weird upbringing, complete with theme rooms and other such things.”
At the age of seven, Cynthia created her first piece of apparel, a dress. (At that age, I was literally playing with Barbie dolls and watching Totally Spies.)
