Raquel Allegra was born in Berkeley CA to artisan parents, who encouraged a creative process of instinct, experiment and play. Raquel was the first with her shredding technique that the brand is well known for. From vintage t’s recycled from the Prison System, and full-length shapes, they became a leader in the industry. In 2009, they ventured into texture, including deerskin, cashmere and French lace. The RAQUEL ALLEGRA label has esteemed admirers from celebrities, editors, stylists and consumers worldwide.
