About the designer
Starting out working at Barney’s, Raquel Allegra has become famous for her shredded T-shirts and tie-dye prints. She has strong ecological beliefs and has an eye for reworking vintage pieces. She chooses not to work with classic suppliers for textiles but transcends the traditional ways of working which give her creations a critical edge. Her bohemian influences can be traced back to her childhood in Berkeley, where she grew up. Allegra presents her new collections every season in New York.
