Raffles X RISIS Boutique

Congratulations to Raffles Jewellery Designer Mifuyu FUKAI on her launch of the Midori Collection, now available at the RISIS Boutique at ION Orchard.

The Midori Collection by Mifuyu Fukai, comprises of a set of Ring, Earrings and Necklace made with Prasiolite.

Mesmerized by the beauty of Japanese culture, the Midori collection captures the skills of artisans and is inspired by the picturesque scenery of Japan’s iconic landmark, the bamboo forest. “Midori” signifies Green in Japanese, a reflection of nature’s enthralling wonders. Handcrafted and encapsulated in 18K Yellow Gold, each piece takes the form of delicate bamboo leaves, intricately weaved with associations of strength, peace, and eternal youth as a demonstration of its meticulous craftsmanship.

Featuring nature-inspired jewellery adorned in exuberant prasiolite (green amethyst). Each piece brings out the inner glow of the wearer, akin to one taking an enchanting walk through the forest that captures the interplay between light and leaves, evoking feelings of tranquillity. Includes detachable earrings which presents different looks for varying occasions. (RISIS, risis.com)

This is an amazing collaboration between Raffles and RISIS to have a student launch her collection commercially. It is truly an amazing feat to have one’s work commercialised as a student, this provides for an invaluable addition to her portfolio giving her the necessary edge as a designer over her peers in employability.

Raffles strives to provide for an industry focused curriculum and a hands-on learning experience for our designers to be constantly updated with the latest in design technology and methodologies, this also in turn provides designers with the avenue to participate in industry collaborations and competition to build their portfolios with industry contributions adding to their employability.

2021 Coventry University Global Challenge

Congratulations to Raffles Fashion Designer ZHAO Xueer, BA (Hon) in Fashion, Class of 2020 for winning the 2nd Prize in the 2021 Coventry University Global Challenge.

Xueer’s fashion collection is her imagination of what people would wear in 50 years’ time. She created the looks based on the three environment issues which mankind will face in areas of water, air, and waste management. She hopes her designs will educate people about the future we are going to live in, and the apparels that one should wear with these environmental conditions in mind.

Coventry has been awarded the status of 2021 UK City of Culture, and as part of the celebrations, Coventry University has launched a Faculty of Arts & Humanities competition exclusively for students at their partner institutions. Inspired by the City of Culture award and as they look to the city’s future, Raffles Designers had the opportunity to make creative responses to the United Nation’s 11th Sustainable Development Goal: ‘Sustainable Cities’.
