Nilam Boutique Kuala Lumpur has been found in December 2009. It is now a registered company under Suruhanjaya Syarikat Malaysia. Nilam Boutique got its name after a type of classic gemstone.
Owner and designer of Nilam Boutique Kuala Lumpur is Ainol Rahayu or better known as "ladyimran". She is the heart and foundation of the company, formerly works as a Project & Design Engineer and also a degree holder in Chemical & Environmental Engineering. In year 2009, she decided to be a "designer" in different field other than engineering and has been working on her new path ever since. Her passion in art, design and creative department has seen her producing many great design and creation especially in fashion line.
She grew up in sewing and tailoring enviroment from the day she was born as her mother was a great tailor back in the 80's and 90's before she fully retired due to poor eyesight in late 90's, and now her mother's legacy continued by ladyimran who's then combining forces with her sister to produce a nice tailored made garment for her online boutique.
Idea to start a made to measure clothing business has been in her mind for quite sometime, especially when she couldn't get or find clothes that she wants and having a hard time scouting for the right style of clothing for a hijabi like her. Often she walks out from a boutique empty handed and frustrated.
Starting in year 2009, she has been working so hard and testing many tailors in order to get only the best tailors in town to work for her. She has been looking high and low and facing with many unfortunate circumstances and failure before she could finally found a handfull of reliable and competent seamstress. That's the amount that she needs to pay to get the best of the best. For ladyimran, quality is something that she wouldn't compromise.
To date , she has been producing many great clothing and continue making a new one. Other than designing clothes, she also capable in taking great photos, making wire jewellery, graphic design, event decorations and sketching. She also actively writing entry for her personal blog at http://www.mrmrsimran.com
