OUR VALUES

Ethical Trading

A business is only as successful as the people involved in it. With the quest to create a system that allows the supplier chain to flourish, Raishma works with independent makers, social enterprises and cooperatives to cultivate long-term and mutually prosperous relationships. The suppliers are an extension of a team and it is ensured that an ethical environment is created for them to flourish. Long lead times that lay no unrequited pressure on  production is at the core of the process. Raishma's fair and ethical trading practices has not only helped build the business but also nurtured sustainable employment.

OUR MISSION

Female

Empowerment

As an organisation that recognises the need for a positive social change, Raishma is dedicated to empowering women across all quarters. Directing efforts to create more opportunities for women, acknowledging their contribution and guiding them in the same regard as every other member of the team is a normal way of working. At Raishma, we believe that this is a small yet important step for growth as a society. 

OUR CRAFT

Handmade

Each Raishma garment is a uniquely handcrafted piece. The beauty of an artisanal skill merged with the designer's vision unfolds and unmatched creation. At Raishma, it is the handmade touch that adds character to every garment. Working with suppliers who use traditional skills handed down from one generation to the next is a concentrated effort to protect and revive these lost craft traditions. 

RAISHMA'S

AWARDS & PRESS

ROYAL ELEGANCE

Designer's

Note

This season’s collection took inspiration from Russain Folk artwork. Embroidery mimicking the delicacy and intricacy of Russain Porcelain and tapestry designs, gives a sense of opulence and elegance. A regal feel throughout the entire collection is set off with the jewel-toned colour palette of emerald greens, champagne golds and rich ruby reds. One of our key gowns of the season is based upon the couture made gown I created for a guest at the Royal Wedding, very in-keeping with the theme. Working with this season’s trends, expect a lot of playfulness with sleeves, cape style gowns and all over embroidery.
