Born in Berkeley CA 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. 2009 marked a maturation for the brand as the collection expanded to include richly textured pieces in deerskin, linen, cashmere, and French lace. The RAQUEL ALLEGRA label continues to garner admiration from celebrities, editors, stylists and savvy consumers worldwide from New York to Tokyo. The RAQUEL ALLEGRA label is found internationally in carefully select boutiques.
