Imani Studio

When we think of high fashion names such as Oscar De La Renta, Chanel, Diane Von Furstenburg and Versace come to mind.  This is not necessarily the case when you are a celebrity.  For celebrities who want to seek out something a little bit different, be it for a red carpet event or their wedding day, one UK retailer provides haute couture with a difference.  Representing the luxurious fabrics and colour palette of the East, Manchester based boutique Imani Studio are no stranger to celebrity requests.


Imani Studio stock high fashion from a different world, a world of opulence, luxury and outright glamour.  Selling internationally renowned labels that are otherwise only available in the best outlets of Dubai and Pakistan, their designs are truly exclusive.  It is no wonder then that even Jermaine Jackson’s reps have previously contacted Imani Studio with an interest in their clothing.


If you enjoy seeing celebrity wedding photos then check out the forthcoming issue of OK! magazine which will feature wedding photos of actress Rokhshane Ghawam Shahidi, who plays Layla in Emmerdale.  For her big day and OK! shoot she wore attire provided by Imani Studio.  Nicole Barber Lane who stars in Hollyoaks also chose the boutique for her outfit for the 2010 Soap Awards.  Even Michael Portillo has worn their menswear.  From dressing royalty in Dubai and Jordan, to characters on film sets within the UK, the boutique’s certainly made a huge name for itself.


Whether you purchase online, from their Manchester store or during one of the many exhibitions they attend around the country, particularly in London, you will fully appreciate the craftsmanship.  The quality of the clothing is excellent regardless of whether you buy off the rail or request a made-to-measure piece.


If you want something a little bit different for a special occasion then they are well worth a look.  Sure they have some expensive items but they do in fact stock for a variety of budgets.  If you want western pieces with a hint of eastern glamour and unique embellishments that you won’t easily find elsewhere then check out their short and maxi dresses.  On the other hand, if you simply want to add some uniqueness to your outfit their costume jewellery, shoes, bags and stoles are worth a look.
