Rinaree Fashion Show – The London Capital Club

We are at this time of the year again when the Christmas parties are on the cards and we are all looking forward to the December festivities ahead. In this spirit, I headed to the fabulous Rinaree launch and fashion show organised by The London Capital Club in the heart of the City the other week.




I wore this Bastyan Danae Drape Dress in Ginger hue in a vibrant stretch silk and Alexander Wang Racketeer Sling small calf hair shoulder bag and Sam Edelman Ria black suede ankle boots. I complemented the outfit with rose gold accessories; Fendi Bangle and Michael Kors watch.




Upon arrival, I was greeted with champagne and hors d’oeuvres and the rest of the evening flowed with beautiful designs showcased by gorgeous models.



Rinaree is a prolific collaboration between Marina Richards and Yana Gafurova, a mother-daughter duo who design stupendous couture evening and wedding gowns with a fresh perspective on fashion and style.


Marina Richards is the designer of the entire Rinaree range, with over 25 years of fashion experience, working with top London designers she makes sure her designs are quintessentially unique, instinctively knowing what the client wants.

Yana Gafurova, who I met personally at the show, is a Central Saint Martins’ offspring, where she majored in jewellery. Striving for perfection, both mother and daughter balance their life experiences and individuality, bringing the best out of the creative trio: couture, art and fashion.








The show wowed with the beauty of uniquely individual designs, fabulous fabrics and understated colour schemes.

My absolute favourite was this interchangeable silver skirt and corset.

The corset itself was made using the traditional 19th century techniques, with French lace, organza and hand-beading and gemstone details, it was absolutely stunning!
Definitely, the winner of the night!


I absolutely adored this blue dress, made of three layers of French lace, applied directly to a silk net base stretched on the mannequin. All fabrics used by Rinaree are natural and originate from Italy and France.

What an extraordinary work of art!


I had a chance to chat to other bloggers and designers who celebrated Rinaree’s launch, exchanging ideas and fashion tips!




What a glamorous evening that was!


Cocktail Dress Edit #5 Bastyan Danae Drape Dress

Bastyan is the hot new British label that delivers high-end quality at high street prices. It has won me over with luxurious fabrics, sloping, flattering silhouettes and fantastic attention to detail.
This Bastyan Danae Drape Dress in Ginger hue is a vibrant stretch silk dress featuring  draping and a cowl neck together with gathered knot detail at the front.
I like the soft metallic sheen to the fabric, contrasting black trim to the neckline and sleeves,  as well as a black trimmed exposed back zip fastening at the back.Bastyan should be sought out by every woman who likes the quality of investment dressing without the hype and for pieces that don’t dictate a style but are still cutting-edge cool.
