From Sydney to Dubai, Riva Williams comes from an events and digital media background. His job revolves around meeting people from different industries and attending top-notch events in the city of lights. It was a great pleasure to assist him in finding the perfect celebratory look. The statement look completely matches his style and brings out his personality.

1. Could you share a bit about yourself?
I am currently working in social media and event management, having moved over to Dubai from Sydney, Australia in June 2019.
2. How would you describe your style?
I always enjoy an excuse to dress up, catching up with friends or enjoying new events and venues around Dubai. I do love to travel and looking forward to hopefully getting back to putting together holiday wardrobes in 2021. For work I like to mix and match my suits, always with some blue in the mix, in summer normally heading to lighter colours for the jacket and cropping the trousers to show some ankle.
3. What’re the things you look for in a perfect suit?
For my suits I look for versatility and a modern aesthetic with quality fabrics that allow me to comfortably stay active throughout the day. There can be considerable running around during events so it’s always important for me and my suit to still look fresh (and without creases) at the end of a long day.
4. Did you have something particular in your mind when you visited Kachins?
I knew that I wanted something special that I could wear as a more custom, elevated piece which I knew Kachins would be the perfect team to create. With exciting events ahead in the new year, I wanted a piece that was completely unique and could be worn a few ways but would always be eye catching.
5. How did Kachins help you achieve that perfect look?
My first consultation with the team was amazing and really helped me decide exactly what I wanted. The team expertly guided me through the incredible range of fabrics and designs available and explained how different fabrics were suited to different needs. There were look books accompanying certain collections which were helpful in imagining some of the more unique designs as a full piece and how that might look. From a top three selection we decided on the favourite fabric and design and agreed to make this into a double-breasted piece as I haven’t worn that style before and wanted to try it.
6. Would you like to share something particular from your experience with Kachins?
The fitting was very professional, and the team always confirmed that they were measuring for the fit I wanted, sometimes tighter in some areas and looser or longer in the arm for example. After my first fitting it wasn’t long until I returned for a trial to see the piece coming together and we were able to finalise any last improvements to the shape to make it fit me perfectly. When it came time to pick it up it was so exciting to see the finished jacket and as expected, it fit me like a glove and even had my name sewn into the lining. I can’t recommend the team at Kachins enough for creating a perfectly custom piece with the best fit using the most amazing materials! Really can’t wait to wear my new custom Kachins blazer.
