Represent : RIY_KA by Rebecca Johnson

My dearest friend Rebecca Johnson is one of the most talented gals I know, she is a breath of fresh air as a person and as a designer. Rebecca graduated from the fashion school of Shenkar two years ago at the top of her class, moved to London , where she established her own label called "RIY-KA".
Rebecca is strongly influenced by different cultures; it comes through in the fabric and shape. The fabrics are a combination of recycled denim, leather, batik (which is an African fabric) and wood block printed kahdi fabric. Rebecca creates prints, embroidery and embellishment on some of the pieces, all made by hand. The shapes are mostly smart and geometric.
You can go to RYI-Ka's website to see the entire collection and inspirations. Here, I have to say that Rebecca named two of her pieces in the 2011 spring-summer collection after me, and I'm soooo flattered!!
Check out RIY-KA's really cool blog!
