Raili Nõlvak creates sophisticated yet functional everyday garments for women. The clothing is modelled by hand, with a strong focus on self-designed details and finish.
The essence of her collection is a contrast between geometric logic and light feminine fluidity. The designer finds a nice balance between the commercial and conceptual, the classic and avant-garde.
Raili Nõlvak ́s signature style is characterized by inspirational games with shapes, forms, cuts and structures, and unexpected small details. The designer ́s aim is to offer garments that surprise you at every angle, while retaining functionality, femininity and elegance.
Signature styles and techniques include the art of folding to create volume through construction, and a unique approach to integrate contrasting materials and surfaces. The restrained colour scheme clearly shows the designer favors shapes and silhouettes over colours and prints.
Raili Nõlvak established her own fashion brand in 2014 after ten years of designing for other Estonian brands. Her unique clothing is created in strictly limited editions. All pieces are manufactured in Estonia.
