Rajah’s collaboration with homeware retailer @Home is worth talking about and guess what, the flamboyant designer’s aesthetic is luxurious fabrics, intricate detailing and bold designs that command attention.Other gorgeous collections at the event  features muted colours, charged with a sense of exoticism through wild animal prints and delicate French garden embroideries. Texture is added with intricate embroidery and beading, as well as through the choice of fabrics used.The looks showcased included strong graphic silhouettes, juxtaposed with a few floaty pieces. Daring thigh-high slits, plunging necklines and see-through fabrics are just some of the cuts that stood out.
