Raisa-Venessa Sason 

 

Sisters Raisa and Vanessa Sason designed their first handbag at the age of 15. Both studied theatre and costume design at the London College of Fashion. By the time they turned 20 they were called upon to create a series of bags and belts for a polo team and produced a bikini line which was quickly picked up (and sold out) at exclusive retail outlets in Turkey.  Raisa and Vanessa Sason have been designing their Raisa-Vanessa collections since 2011 both Prêt-à-Porter and Haute Couture, and have presented their first runway collection at the Spring/Summer 2012 presentation. This season their looks showcased the detailing in design including strategic cut-outs, stenciling, embroidery as well as a wonderful mix of fabrics including silk and velvet.
