There's Something About Rae Francis


Rae Francis Summer 2012 


I was first introduced to womenswear line Rae Francis  while strolling  my favorite blogs, The Glamourai and From Me To You. Their recent stylized jaunt to Marrakesh captured in a serious of enviable images  had both ladies in silk shirt dresses by Rae Francis that  inspired me to place on my inspiration board.   I was excited when I received an invite from their publicist to preview their latest collection and meet the talented ladies behind Rae Francis.
Ariel Lilly and Christina Coniglio



Like their design duo counterparts,  Proenza  Schouler and Cushnie et Ochs, Ariel Lilly and Christina Coniglio met in designs school, theirs being the  Savannah School of Art but unlike the prodigal teams mentioned , Lilly and Coniglio went their separate ways after graduation, gaining  experience in sales, public relations, production and design. In  March of 2011, Lilly and Coniglio joined forces and launched Rae Francis a culmination of Lilly'ss middle name and Coniglio's father's name. Combining Lilly's uptown influences  of  classic lines  and Coniglio's downtown ode to deconstruction, the Rae Francis line is a hybrid  of effortless style with a twinkle of sophisticated edge. The  collection is  full of wardrobe staples with a slight twist in a truly affordable prices ranging  from  $115-$500,  Rae Francis is set to become the must have line for the stylish set.
