Raishma always knew she would become a fashion designer. Learning the craft from her mother, she was given her first sewing machine at the age of eight. Her exposure to a breadth of cultural influences due to her British Asian heritage sparked her interest in bringing together the beautiful silks, hand embroidery, and vibrant colours of the East with Western cuts and tailoring. By age 12, she was designing and making beautiful fusion fashion. As founder of Raishma, she is intricately connected to the product throughout the entire process, sketching each piece, selecting every fabric, and personally overseeing each style to ensure perfect quality and fit.
