> Born in Berkeley CA to artisan parents, Raquel Allegra’s formative years encouraged a creative process of instinct, experiment and play. Raquel’s design career grew naturally with the origination of a shredding technique synonymous with the namesake label. Full length webbed cocoon shapes evolved out of laborious experiments with oversized vintage t’s recycled from the Los Angeles County Prison System, and informed a new informal beauty within the industry. 2009 marked a maturation for the brand as the collection expanded to include richly textured pieces in deerskin, linen, cashmere, and French lace. With 11 seasons of production inclusive of A/W 12, the label continues to garner admiration from celebrities, editors, stylists and savvy consumers from New York to Beirut.
The Raquel Allegra label is found internationally in select boutiques; inclusive of Barneys NY, Assembly New York, Liberty of London, and Harvey Nichols
