The dynamic duo of Rizman Nordin and Ruzaini Jamil began their amazing journey together as students in the workshops of the Fashion Department in UiTM some two decades ago. It is fair to say that they discovered each other, displaying their flair and panache for making outstanding designs early on. Their contemporaries and educators often recollect how ambition was the main driving force for the pair’s outstanding performance as young designers, seeing them boldly stepping into the limelight from the get-go by working together with their idols from the stage and silver screens, a relationship that they have maintained to this day.
The Rizman Ruzaini brand made a serious entry into the Malaysian industry in 2005, with humble beginnings not too dissimilar to many a fashion upstart. Over the years, the duo poured all their devotion into the brand by focusing on several key areas, particularly in creating signature silhouettes that are instantly recognisable as well as an unrivalled attention to fine details, superior materials and class leading workmanship. Today, each garment that passes through the gilded doors of the Rizman Ruzaini boutique is distinctly special in design and intricately crafted by highly skilled in-house artisans. Only the best fabrics, embellishments and accoutrements are used to deliver utmost satisfaction to every customer.
RIZMAN RUZAINI - COUTURE SS24
On the closing day of Dubai Fashion Week, renowned Malaysian designer duo to the stars, Rizman Nordin and Ruzaini Jamil, unveiled their collection of 60 exquisite looks. These designs adorned international models, including beloved Malaysian favourites, Tinie and Deedee Nash. The show reached its crescendo when world-renowned supermodel and culture icon Naomi Campbell graced the runway, donning a magnificent handmade gown adorned with thousands of glistening gemstones. This collection drew inspiration from the enchanting tale of Seri Gumum, a legendary dragon that once roamed the dark waters of Lake Chini. The designs boasted ornate beadwork and sequins, with a colour palette spanning from turquoise and chromatic rose gold to burnt orange, silver, and the designer’s trademark deep black. Each piece exuded elegance, featuring beaded fabrics, graceful ostrich feathers, and dramatic chiffon drapes. Additionally, traditional Malaysian Songket weaving paid homage to the nation’s rich heritage.
