Cool News! Plus Size Designer, Yuliya Raquel is BACK!

Fashionable, Flattering & Made for You! You’ll fall head over heels with Yuliya Raquel’s new collection. We’ve got the 411 on the line and what you can expect!

Those of us that have had to search for THE PERFECT dress for a special occasion know that for plus size fashion shoppers, it can sometimes be a game of chance. The dress that looks gorgeous and gone-with-the-wind fabulous? Fits horribly. Or the dress that resembles a circus tent in design fits you like a glove. In this space of plus size fashion options, it is easy to be overwhelmed and/or discouraged… What’s a curvy girl to do?

Well, like the saying goes, “If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.” And this is exactly what plus size designer, Yuliya Raquel did and her brand spanking new made-to-order collection is a reflection of that.

Get this! Founder of Igigi, Yuliya Raquel stepped away from plus size fashion three years ago, and we wondered what was going to be her next move. After launching Bootstrap Fashion, Yuliya made all of us so happy to see that she has come back to plus size fashion, with her own made-to-order eponymous collection, Yuliya Raquel.

Yuliya believes that you are unique and your dresses and gowns should reflect that individuality! We co-sign this completely and are too hyped about her return and this collection. Can we say plus size evening and wedding dress options?

” After three years out of the fashion scene, I decided to come back. Fashion design is more than just my profession, it is my passion and designing fashion gives me incredible joy and fulfillment.

While I absolutely love to design and bring new ideas to life, I also use my skills and talent to help evolve the fashion industry as a whole, as well as to elevate the experiences of so many women who struggle to find clothing that fits them perfectly and flatters their beautiful, unique bodies.” ~ Yuliya Raquel

The Yuliya Raquel Made-to-Order Collection

Each dress from Yuliya Raquel is custom-sewn by only the most proficient master seamstress, for you and you alone. No mass production, minimal waste, ethical manufacturing and fair wages for each seamstress. What’s better than investing in a dress that makes you look fabulous? Investing in a dress that makes you look fabulous and FEEL fabulous!

    What is going on with yuliya, igigi, and swak? Igigi totally went down hill after she left and since 2017 Igigi and swak have just declined rapidly. I can’t find anything other than what is on their website.
