What Inspires Roses & Waves?

Just a short drive away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Vancouver, the Roses & Waves Owner – Emily Van Elk, model – Alissa Hansen and photographer – Milan Elliott, hike down to a stunning North Vancouver location that is nothing short of feeling like you are a fairy from the magical rain forests of Avatar.  With the waterfall’s cool mist and sensual hugging water pouring down the mountain, we reflect what Roses & Waves represents and how places like this provides our inspiration everyday.



Freedom, Femininity and Fun



Stylish women who wander and adventure. Women with California meets french style.



The Roses & Waves woman has a wild desire for freedom, creativity and travel.  A person who is a free-spirit and lives on their own terms.
