Family matters! Twins Raisa and Vanessa Sason came together to create a brand they describe as haute couture and urban. "It's a fusion of maximalist, dimensional and sexy designs," says Raisa, "our client is a modern, independent and empowered woman."
The pair studied performance costume at the London College of Fashion, and their theater background is still evident in their collections today. You'll find unique details such as sparkling embellishments, strong shoulders and cutting edge ruffles in your coveted party dresses.
So it is not surprising that Hollywood turns to the brand when they need a spectacular set. According to Vanessa, a memorable look on the red carpet should be "unique, bold and attractive". Some of her favorite celebrity moments include Taylor Swift's pleated mini pleat she wore at the Billboard Music Awards: Vanessa highlights the superior craftsmanship of the handmade couture piece: “We love the use of a single color, lilac, it's distinctive and Taylor looks phenomenal! ”Another highlight: Heidi Klum's 70s-inspired jumpsuit, made by covering a fingerprint with 1,600 crystals. “It was made for Heidi Klum! She looks fierce in the tiger print, ”says Raisa.
