Having trained under distinguished designer Elizabeth Emanuel, famed for creating Princess Diana’s iconic wedding dress, Raishma was inspired to launch her self-named label in 1998 after much anticipation and to high acclaim. From a couture and bespoke background, Raishma is renowned for creating exceptional and beautiful gowns.

With 20 years of expertise and experience, the established designer has had the privilege of dressing British Royal Family members, HRH Princess Beatrice & HRH Princess Eugenie and A-list celebrities, including Mel B and Hollywood actress Goldie Hawn.

Still maintaining her core values, the pioneering designer has extended the brand to create a ready to wear collection. Raishma’s passion for creating beautiful designs is the cornerstone for creating an evening-wear line. With inspiration stemming from her eastern background, Raishma takes influences from beautiful fabrics and focuses on intricate hand beadwork and embroidery. The fusion inspired collection consists of luxurious gowns, elegant cocktail dresses and beautiful resort wear.

Since the launch of Raishma, the brand has seen rapid growth and great recognition from the press and fashion industry. Raishma opened her boutique in 1999 before meeting the demands of online retailing in 2014 by creating her transactional website, which today proves to be a fundamental element of her business. Raishma gained further credibility in 2015 by becoming a leading brand at Wolf & Badger, which led to launching online at established premium high street department stores, John Lewis & House of Fraser. With future plans to continue the growth of her brand, Raishma will be launching in the Middle East in June 2016.

Raishma has shown at several fashion shows domestically including most recently London Fashion Week 2016. Raishma has also had the opportunity to present her designs internationally in New York, Russia, India and Doha, most recently showcasing her Spring Summer collection at Doha’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week last year.

Raishma is available in store at her boutique and Wolf & Badger Notting Hill. Visit online at www.raishma.co.uk,www.johnlewis.com, www.houseoffraser.co.uk and www.wolfandbadger.com.
