Meet Rua Luja

In our quest for inclusive clothing, Samanta Bullock found an ally in dress-maker Nasim Rua Luja. Today, we are very honored to announce that together we designed an inclusive fashion line for Rua Luja.

Rua Luja first started working as a lawyer in the UK after obtaining a law degree. However, her passion for making classy dresses finally changed her career path into the fashion field to finally pursue a fashion career of her dreams. Nasim is mostly inspired by her mother, who would sew dresses for her and her sisters when she was younger. The signature style of the garments she creates comes from her unique way of mixing the fabrics of the Eastern culture with the Western designs. Her ability to combine motherhood, work and travels makes her clothes perfectly adapted to a modern woman.

Feminine and elegant, her creations are the result of many years of experimenting with fabrics and designs. Made from high-quality fabrics which are locally sourced by her local fabric businesses. The pieces are sophisticated made with handcrafted details in their small studio in the UK. With close attention to fabric association, every piece is designed and created with the fabric in mind. Every item can be adapted to women of all shapes and sizes because everyone deserves to be able to dress elegantly and femininely. Their product selections include interesting jewellery pieces, in order for the customers to be able to create total looks.

Rua Luja’s creations are extremely modern as they take into consideration the multi-cultured societies we live in and offer options that can be adapted to every woman’s lifestyle. Consequently, inclusivity was the next step to take for the brand and we are glad they are taking it with us.

I have wanted to do this video for a long time now. As you probably know one of my favorite pieces is a long dress. I have a few Rua Luja dresses and I decided to show them to you. I like dresses because I don’t need to be worried about showing my bum as I do when I am wearing jeans. Also, long dresses because of cover my legs.

It is so easy to wake in the morning and wear something easy and posh at the same time. Its kind of put together in less than 2 minutes. I have a post on Rua Luja and my experience with them and Inthink its worth to check it out.

Please let me know your opinions in the comments.

Have a great day. Love Sam x

Rua Luja is a Brand That I LOVE – Find Out Why…

Rua Luja – Pict by AK Hussain

Recently I attended the London Ethnic Boutique event, which was an amazing opportunity to further explore my passion for fashion. During my day there, I discovered plenty of amazing brands, along with a plethora of fantastic, inspiring people to share the experience with. One of my favourite brand on display was most certainly Rua Luja.

What can I say, other than I adore everything about their range of items? They’re a London based fashion label, which is part of London Organic – a company which supports those that supply organic clothing.

Predominantly, they stock long, elegant dresses that look fabulous. If you’re searching for a dress that will ensure you look glamourous for a special occasion, then Rua Luja may be the perfect choice. Plus, they stock a variety of different long dresses, so there’ll be something for everyone.

Now, other than what you see on the exterior, the brand has wonderful morals, values and beliefs if you dig a little deeper. For instance, they sell fur jackets, which I must admit, look divine. But, all of the fur that they use has been validated for being cruelty-free, which shows they have a conscience, and want to appreciate all living things on this planet.

Talking of fur jackets, I did manage to try one on during the event, and I honestly couldn’t fault it. You see, being a wheelchair-user, I often find it difficult to source clothes, especially jackets, because they seem to get caught in the wheels. To put it simply, finding the right jacket is a nightmare.

However, the length on the Rua Luja fur jacket is absolutely spot on, which I was amazed at; it doesn’t interfere with the wheels whatsoever. As I spent quite a while at the Rua Luja stand, I was able to try on most of their range, as well as delve into the finer details. Something that stood out to me, was that everything is extremely affordable, despite the high-quality materials.

All in all, I had a terrific day at the London Ethnic Boutique event, and I’m super-happy that I discovered Rua Luja. If you want to check them out, then either visit their website, or their Instagram (both links will be below).
