|Founder(s)||Dana & Violette Basoc|
Raquette is a Romanian label, founded in 2012, by a design duo – Danielle & Violette, two sisters who decided to follow their mother's vocation, both inheriting her love for the fashion world. "Raquette" was Violette's nickname since childhood and although all her friends were making jokes on this, the sisters never thought it will later become a brand. Danielle & Violette were always inspired by their mother’s talent. Therefore, the commitment to creating beauty within restraint stayed with them into adulthood. Violette later pursued her love for fashion by supplementing her study at Istituto Marangoni in Milan, while Danielle's eye for fashion has formed her as a fashion photographer. While Violette is responsible for collections' design, Danielle is taking care of the Maison's campaigns and branding. Raquette is proud of having its own manufacturing team, based in Eastern Europe, where each ready-to-wear piece and bridal gown is handcrafted and shaped accurately by professionals. Business women, celebrities, influencers and women who appreciate affordable luxury are among Raquette’s customers. Raquette reflects the clean and effortless chic style, being recognized in minimalist design and versatile products. The brand’s signature can be defined by simple and clean cuts, small crafted details, classic fit, reinventing essentials each season.
