A harmonious medley of one-off designs and specially sourced vintage pieces, Ragyard is for the woman that’s all about sartorial individualism. Founded by Josephine Starsmore in 2015, the London-based label quickly outgrew its Shoreditch and Notting Hill boutiques to build an international fan base. With every piece lovingly crafted in the UK, don’t miss its bold colours, lashings of sequins, exquisite appliqués and intricate embroidery.
The Ragyard team loves to travel and explore cultures through designs and textiles and love to be inspired by their customers. They tell the story of these journeys, taking the customer through the Ragyard experience, showing who they are from their initial idea through to design and creation, from the sample room to the stores.
Through a love of traveling the world and scouring rag yards for truly amazing vintage pieces, a family business was born. Ragyard is a unisex brand that prides itself on inclusivity and authenticity. They create one of a kind handmade designs, using the vintage they personally source worldwide.
The 3 main pillars that bring Ragyard together as a brand:
Reworked – which includes all their vintage reworked pieces (they take vintage bands t-shirts/vintage sportswear, redesign and stick diamantes all over, for example), their One Of Kind pieces (true one off pieces, such as Levi’s Denim Jacket with Indian patches and trims, added sequin tigers etc) and their main collections, which they have four per year.
Vintage – Their true Vintage collection, sourced from Italy, Paris, LA, cherry picked by their wise and eagle eyed vintage team.
Finds – Their wonderful collection of what they have found throughout their travels to India, Cuba, Africa, the Middle East, Japan, China, (Kuchi handbags, Indian wall hangings etc).
