On the 15th November, located in picturesque Marylebone, Raishma hosted her collaborative shopping event with the WE Empowered.

Greeted with a glass of champagne and canapes, guests were welcomed into the store to explore Raishma pieces.

Exclusive to the event, were 20% off across the AW17 collection.

The recently launched AW17 ‘Rich Opulence’ collection caught a significant amount of attention on the night. Perfect for getting into the Winter festivities up till the New Year. The collection has it all.

Designed in house; each Raishma piece offers a thought provoking journey through cultural architecture. Clasping onto the dominant colours of red, blue, purple and hints of nude pink, the collection effectively encapsulates the aesthetic of stain glass art. Moreover, the spectrum of colours seamlessly transitions from Autumn to Winter.

The rich jewel toned embellishments are hand-beaded onto the georgette, carrying clusters of sequins, that glimmer along the decollete and sleeves. The placement of these finishes allows each piece to evoke opulence without appearing overpowering. Furthermore, the rich hints of colour peek through the golden thread-work, accentuating the beading whilst achieving depth.

Previously, Raishma and WE Empowered have hosted many events together, in the hopes to bring Fashion and Business together.

WE is a “social initiative” which strives to encouraging independent women towards developing skills and talent to achieve their personal goals. Open worldwide, the organisation encourages the unity between all women. Engage, encourage, empower and enable are the principles of WE to develop a “powerful and exciting network for women.” Founded by Reena Ranger, WE Empowered has created a platform where women can discuss and address the issues of how can women juggle life, family, career and community.

Stay tuned for more Raishma and WE events in the making for next year!
