Dream turned reality, Rakate is the brainchild of Kathryn Rao (Co-Founder & Creative Director) and Don Adikaram ( Co-Founder & Operations Director).
From the young age of 16, Kathryn began her career in the creative industry in hopes to dissect every aspect of it with the goal to one day launch her very own unique platform for all things combining art & fashion. While Don, ambitiously worked in production & operations towards a future investment in his own home-grown business.
10 years later, The missing pieces of the puzzle fell into place when they re-connected after many years. Kathryn, with all the experience gained and absorbed in the fast-paced creative industry – from print/digital media to production, designing to retail, events to marketing, e-commerce to social media, hand-in-hand with Don and his experience in events and operations, marketing and sales, customer service and management, music and production, finally took the leap to launch the unique e-commerce platform and start a family business – Rakate.
