IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel, women's premiere brand of contemporary collections in sizes 12-32, released pre-Fall collection at the Full Figured Fashion week to a smiling and applauding crowd that put the fun back in fashion. IGIGI's collection Rendezvous a Paris is inspired by the lifestyle of the ever chic, romantic, and feminine city of lights, and it is made up of 12 pieces including elegant and sophisticated day dresses, fun separates, dramatic and colorful evening gowns, and a lavish concoction of silk and organza detailed couture wedding gown that is a dream- come-true for brides-to-be worldwide. Yuliya Raquel also accepted the Best Plus Fashion Retailer of the Year award nominated by the Full Figured Fashion Week and voted by plus-size women worldwide.

“I am thrilled that companies who design for the full figured woman now have a platform where we can showcase our collections and network. This has been my dream come true, and to see so many smiles in the audience was a great reassurance that you don't have to be a stick figure to consume and enjoy fashion,” said Yuliya Raquel, IGIGI Designer and Founder.

IGIGI's mission is to transform the world's view of beauty by breaking down the barriers surrounding beauty. Raquel's goal is to contribute to this mission via designing clothes that enable women to rediscover their beauty and live their lives feeling beautiful, desirable, and empowered.

“My collection acknowledges, reveals, and celebrates the genuine present beauty in women. Everybody is beautiful just the way they are right now at this moment with no changes required. I think of my collection as an instrument that provides form-fitting and figure-flattering looks, and therefore, makes a woman feel radiant and beautiful and fall in love with her reflection with one look in the mirror. That kind of glow, love, and confidence is what will help and make others change their view of beauty, that is, beauty is confined to a certain size.”

Designed and produced in San Francisco, CA, IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel provides women of curves with smart, stylish and sophisticated collections that accentuate and celebrate their bodies. IGIGI collections are manufactured with the highest quality fabrics and workmanship and reflect the latest trends in fashion. IGIGI introduces most of its styles in very limited quantities to keep the collections exclusive. IGIGI employs innovative techniques that create a great fit for the individual shape leading to a visually appeasing appearance. IGIGI's ShapeStylist educates customers about their individual body shape and tricks of the trade to dress it for the ultimate flattery.
