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 from Raquel’s trademark shredded tees to include richly textured pieces in deerskin, linen, cashmere, and French lace. Raquel remains dedicated to the tradition of artistry and craftsmanship in the fashion industry. With the exception of some of our knitwear, they manufacture and dye everything in Los Angeles. Each one of their tie dye pieces is individually hand tied and dyed.
