The Rossi Hare

Press play to listen

Iā€™m Mark Grantham from Radio Southend. We teamed up with Rossi Ice Cream to find a Voice for the Rossi Hare, and the competition winner was Maria Hickey.

Inspiration for the Rossi Hare was modelled on the retro style swimwear of the 1930ā€™s. The iconic Rossi colours, blue and white, are painted on to striped vintage swim top and short swim skirt, with ruffles, constructed from plaster, creating a 3 dimensional effect. A bandana and head scarf, together with a cool pair of swimming goggles, and of course, the iconic Rossi ā€˜99ā€™, complete her look.
