Birmingham based stylist/designer Maria Rehmali will showcase her debut womenswear and luggage collection on the first day of February 2011’s London Fashion Week as part of LGN Events’ flagship off-schedule catwalk show, A La Mode.
The Rehmali brand is born of Maria’s recognition of an individualistic approach to couture. Having earned her stripes in fashion cred by working as a personal stylist, Maria realised that each client wanted a unique garment which they felt comfortable in. It was this that gave her the determination and spirit to design her own range.
Growing up in Birmingham, Maria has been exposed to a vibrant, colourful cultural environment which is credited with enhancing much of her creative influences. She has also embarked on insightful travel experiences which she feels benefit her collection immensely, claiming she has learnt about the world and how fashion impacts on an individual’s creativity through the colour, scenery, climate and social status of locations she has encountered.
Employing lace, velvet, printed fabrics, chiffon and georgette, Rehmali dresses draw upon inspiration from such renowned designers as Roberto Cavalli, Balmain and Giorgio Armani. Rehmali also boasts a range of handbags and luggage which have been customised in Marrakech.
The bag designs are constructed using high quality leather with a unique printed lining. The current season will display tans to chocolate shades in a range of sizes from over the shoulder to holdalls. Rehmali will be taking to the catwalk on Friday 18th February 2011 as part of LGN Events’ A La Mode show at the Charing Cross Hotel, Strand.
