The brand

Beauty comes from within and is enhanced by how we express ourselves on the outside. At Meher & Riddhima, femininity is celebrated with exclusive collections of stunning evening wear.

Inspired by the fact that every woman is unique and beautiful in her own way, the brand oozes style, sophistication and elegance; making anyone who picks up their pieces feel like a true goddess.

The M&R design philosophy is to combine modern shapes with traditional elements and technics. Perfectly balancing Western and Eastern fashion, the brand has grown to become one of the most respected in its sector in the UAE.

Believing that giving back is a way of life, the company’s CSR projects know no ends, with the brand creating ‘Key to Hope’ collections each year to support Harmony House, a shelter that brings education, food and safety to underprivileged women and children in Delhi.

To Riddhima, the Creative Director, Fashion is the thrill and high of creativity, the sheer expression of novelty, the amazing and exquisite imagery, the portrayal of romance and elegance. She often refers to the quote by Edith Head –‘you can have anything you want in life if you dress for it’. She believes the confidence you can have by dressing your best is amazing and this is encouraged with the M&R style.

Pre Fall 2016 Collection

The M&R Fall/Winter inspiration is derived from the Elizabethan Era – which is also known as the Golden Age. It was an age of exploration and expansion. M&R draws inspiration from the Queen herself: the exaggerated ruffles and strong details which exuded femininity, while also depicting her powerful status. M&R strives to empower women through the colors palette of royal purple, teal, noir, ivory and red on heavier fabrics such as Jacquard, Georgettes, Satin and Taffeta are combined with softer Lace and Crepe di chine to form a versatile collection. M&R in this Fall/Winter 2016 collection features Raha Moharrak, Kelly Lundberg and Uma Ghosh Deshpandy as they resonate with the M&R empowered women philosophy.
