IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel reveals imperial Russian collection
Sep '12
Award-winning, plus-size designer brand IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel’s newest Fall collection presents pieces with sumptuous imperial Russian influences interpreted for today’s modern and elegant full-figured woman on the go.

Inspired by the royal opulence of her native pre-Soviet Russia, Designer Yuliya Raquel, has used luxurious Italian wools, gabardine, and jersey that take life in rich jewel tones, gold accents, and folklore prints with a modern aesthetic.

Dresses, career separates and outerwear are draped and tailored in the brand’s signature techniques that have drawn full-figured fashionistas over a decade. The campaign features plus-size model Kailee O’Sullivan as she moves about in San Francisco’s financial district declaring her unapologetic ownership of her femininity.

“This has been a very satisfying collection to create, as well as a bit nostalgic. I cherish the memories growing up in an environment of poetic melancholy, deep and profound friendships and connections between people, cold winters and hot summers; being completely mesmerized by the regal art of the memory of the Royal Family and overall artistic inclinations of the Russian people.

“This collection is a testament to going back to my roots. And I am delighted to inspire curvy fashionistas to experience the memories of my childhood and early youth.” said Yuliya Raquel.
