Hi there and welcome to my little boutique in the heart of Europe!

 

I’m raori. No actually, my REAL name is Hanna, but when I’m making something, I go under raori. Most of the time I’m very sweet, but sometimes I can get really angry, like a lion. An old friend told me I sounded like a lion when I was angry, so he started to call me raori. As in the roar of a lion, you know. 

All raori garments and accessories are one of a kind and handmade by me, raori, in Brussels, the city of beer, chocolate, comic strips and a small peeing boy ...  

 

I live in a sunny apartment in Brussels with my little creating family of four. My husband is a musician and songwriter, so we create together whenever we can; otherwise it’s just the kids, my darling design assistant Caitlyn and me. Caitlyn is the DJ, organiser and always full of great ideas. My 2 year old daughter Elsa models, gives me pins or paints on t-shirts, while my son studies us from the floor where he practise crawling, while chewing on a pen or something else, mostly disgusting stuff...


I started to make clothes when I was sixteen- since then there has been nothing else for me; I studied fashion in Sweden and London during four years and worked later in the design department for Gant and for Bondelid in Stockholm before I decided to live in Tokyo for a while. The love of my life was there waiting for me and now we live in his hometown- Brussels. 

I would love to chat and to know who you are - my dear visitor- and to make new friends here on UsTrendy, so don't hesitate to contact me if you feel like it :) You can contact me in English, Swedish, Français ou 日本語 だけどカタカナとひらがなは大丈夫でも感じはちょっと。。。
