Raeana is a designer of fashion product and imagery- dividing her time and talents between crafting conceptual luxury pieces and consulting for clients as a stylist. She is an alumna of Parsons School of Design, where she gained an affinity for artisanal fur craftsmanship after training at the worlds foremost creative laboratory for developing new ideas in fur - The Saga Furs Design Centre. Her collection of beetle inspired fur pieces and launched her collection of specialty fur pieces in 2014.

Each collection is an exploration of fantasy and function - curating narratives through sculptural silhouettes, with a consciousness of the female form.  The current collection,  inspired by beetles of the phylum Arthropoda, is an exploration of form and texture.  Each silhouette is inspired by the heavily striated elytra of Passalidae beetles,  interpreted through the use of finely pleated leather.
