Rachel has created a capsule collection of gifts especially for The National Gallery in London.
This range of products has been inspired by the rose held by Marie-Madeleine (called Manon) in the portrait Manon Balletti 1757 by artist Jean-Marc Nattier (below).
The rose was a symbol of the romance between Manon and her lover Casanova, to whom she became engaged at about the time the portrait was painted. However she married a more reputable though older suitor, the architect Jacques-François Blondel three years later.
This is the hanky Rachel designed, featuring the exclusive rose print.
To purchase this item, see more of the collection and

What fun we had putting it together...

Rachel Riley in the New York Times!
Last week, the New York Times style section ran an article about the rise of Designer Childrens Lines.
They interviewed Rachel about the industry and her opinions on designer brands moving into Childrenswear.
It makes a really interesting article and the way they review items against competitors gives a good insight.
We are pleased to say we faired well in their review and they were impressed with our quality & details such as french seams in our designs.
Rachel Riley donated a $100 gift certificate to ST.Thomas Moore playgroup for their annual fundraiser event.
We also offered the winner of the certificate to invite some of her friends & have a private shopping spree at Rachel Riley!
The lucky winner was Loraine O'Brien. She had about 20 close friends (many of them big fans of Rachel Riley)
who happily came along to join in the fun!
We served Champagne & h'ordeuvres, and also offered goody bags & 20% off on their purchases.
The ladies had an amazing time and we all had a great evening,
it was lovely to meet them & hope they will all come back again soon!
