We’ve had a love affair with Raquel Allegra since her hand slashed shirts and dresses. Remember when the blogosphere blew up with everyone trying to re-create her handy work? Yup, we even tried our hand at those. With that being said, nothing will come close to her skillful handmade clothes.
She is a design school drop out, yet her fashions and brand reach the far corners of the earth. She chalks up all of her success to passion, hard work and finding her way through the back door of fashion, aka luck. Finding that one person who believes in you, and which can ultimately connect you to the next right person.
When you start cutting your own clothes, and designing at the age of 7, we think greatness is ahead of you…

“There is no ‘right’ way to get where you want to go, just a right way for you. Follow your bliss.” -Raquel Allegra
