Charlotte Ronson always had an interest in fashion, however, she began designing after friends asked her to create pieces for them. She graduated from New York University (NYU) after majoring in Studio Art and interned at Harper's Bazaar, Rolling Stone, and with designer Cynthia Rowley.

In 2001, she began garnering attention from popular fashion magazines such as Vogue. By May 2002, Ronson had opened her flagship store on Elizabeth Street in New York. The Charlotte Ronson brand is partnered with Japanese apparel company, The Wall.
