Rhonique Ballantyne grew up on the island of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Her artistic inclination started at an early age as she would watch her grandma create both home decoration products as well as custom garments. Despite her love for fashion Rhonique pursued a career in law, but was always fascinated with fashion.
In 2011 she migrated to Canada and attended Seneca College of Applied Arts and Technology where she gained a Diploma in fashion design.
In 2017 she was awarded the "Best in Show " and "Most Media Ready" at Seneca College's Redefining Design show. Rhonique won 1st place in the 2016 regional Creative Catwalk competition where she had to create an outfit embodying the legendary "Prince".
Her esthetic is very sophisticated yet playful, simple yet decadent. She has a keen eye for color and enjoys working with quality textiles. Rhonique aims to celebrate culture, creativity and spirit through an amalgamation of eclectic styles.
