With more then just a flair for the dramatic, the sister duo behind Raisa & Vanessa create bold and what some call maximalist garments that embrace the female form in a sexy and empowered expression that is not for the demure. With a background in theatre and costume design their audacious statement making clothes are often favored by those in the performing arts and their garments have been spotted on many a celebrity red carpet moment and out and about at fashion week on the backs of the most discernible fashionistas.
And the theatrical statements don’t stop with the clothes, from their lookbooks to their videos and their runway shows Raisa & Vanessa are not afraid to push boundaries. So it is no surprise that the runway show for fall/winter 2017 roars down the runway in a decadent, unapologetic over the top observance of all that is extravagant and sumptuous. See for yourself, this is one show where I dare you to find one patron typing on her phone.
