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 tee’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 from Raquel’s trademark shredded tees to include richly textured pieces in deerskin, linen, cashmere, and French lace. She continues to be inspired by strong women of all ages and different walks of life.
The RAQUEL ALLEGRA label continues to garner admiration from celebrities, editors, stylists and savvy consumers worldwide from New York to Tokyo. Raquel’s clothes are carried in more than 200 retail locations around the globe. In June 2016 she opened her first flagship store in Los Angeles.
Raquel remains dedicated to the tradition of artistry and craftsmanship in the fashion industry. With the exception of some of their knitwear, they manufacture and dye everything in Los Angeles. Each one of their tie dye pieces is individually hand tied and dyed.
