Former runway model creates high-end Mormon temple dresses

By WITW Staff on January 17, 2016

Mormon model Rosemary Card spent her late teen years walking the runway in high fashion pieces around the globe, but soon grew weary of balancing the alcohol-and-drug-fueled world of modeling and going to church on Sundays. She quit at the age of 18 after a particularly uncomfortable trip to Japan and, after getting her degree from Brigham Young University, went to work for the church. There, she was inspired to combine her passions, according to the Deseret News.

Now, Card has created her own high-fashion line, this time for young Mormon women in the form of dresses they can wear to temple each weekend. Card named her company Q.Noor, and, with approvals from the church, plans to sell modest long temple dresses via the web to Mormon women. “The goal is not to sell a trillion dresses, … even though that would be fantastic,” Card said. “The purpose of this is to help me become who Heavenly Father wants me to become, so I’m working on that, and it’s great that I can try to help others in the process. I know that between Heavenly Father and I, that’s the goal.”
