To raise awareness for their charity; British Asian designers were welcomed to showcase their latest and upcoming collections. Raishma collection Raishma attended wearing her gold embellished Lila Shirt, recently launched from her AW17 collection. As well as pairing her look with classy accessories and a statement cape. Previewing looks for her SS18 line, Raishma gave us a glimpse for what to expect next year. Pastel shades, classic silhouettes and beading ran throughout her Ready to Wear collection. Of those pieces, select favourites were the blue embroidered jacket with matching under dress and blush embellished cocktail dress.
