Kora Rae embodies the psyche of the tiger in designs by Rachel Turzer. Kora Rae is a relatively new line of women’s apparel launched by Rachel Turzer in 2013. Bringing her unique perspective to women’s clothing, Turzer says, “I have been fortunate enough to immerse myself in beauty so surreal that I cannot help but want to share through my designs.” The tiger is especially significant, since Kora Rae is rooted in Branson, Missouri’s National Tiger Sanctuary. A percentage of all proceeds are donated to the sanctuary and to Kora, a recently rescued and adopted cub sponsored by Turzer. Encapsulating her amazing collection, Rachel affirms that women wearing Kora Rae embody the psyche of the tiger: Fearless, powerful, beautiful and independent in every aspect of their lives.
The pieces in the collection are extremely artistic, combining fine European silks and leathers with local New York craftsmanship. Rachel’s sophisticated designs meld the hand embroidery by the craftsmen of the Dasbagha Village in Eastern India with modern silhouettes and vibrant colors for busy women on the corporate ladder. The collection contains career, casual and evening wear for virtually every occasion. The prices are mid-range, perhaps a bit more than many budget-conscious shoppers are used to. Yet, each piece is a work or art and part of the proceeds help to maintain the National Tiger Sanctuary and assure Kora a safe, long life.
For a fresh corporate look that embodied the psyche of the tiger, pair a Kristina top with slim black slacks. Done in vibrant teal, the top features a diaphanous silk Georgette center panel finished with silk crepe de chine. A notched V-Neck collar and raglan long sleeves complete the style. Extremely comfortable and flattering to all figure types, it’s sure to be an office favorite. Complete the look with high black pumps and carry a smooth black medium foldover clutch. Start the buzz by telling friends and coworkers about the Kora Rae collection and its commitment to the National Tiger Sanctuary.
If there’s a dinner date on your calendar, an elegant black Mariana dress is a sure winner. Designed for the modern sophisticate, the sleeveless raglan V-neck dress features a self sash to define the waist. The skirt falls softly to below the knee and features side slits for freedom of movement and a tantalizing hint of thigh. Slip on high black dress sandals and delicate diamond drop silver earrings to dance the night away. Carry a tiny black wristlet for the bare necessities.
