Born in Berkeley, CA, to artisan parents, Raquel Allegra's childhood encouraged a personal creative process of instinct, experiment and play. Raquel remains dedicated to the tradition of artistry and craftsmanship in the fashion industry. With the exception of some of her knitwear, she manufactures and dyes everything in Los Angeles, CA. Each one of her tie dye pieces is individually hand tied and dyed. She is also proud to support the CanopyStyle campaign to protect ancient and endangered forests during her fabric choice selection. A sustainable and uber chic brand that DIANI has been proud to carry over the years.
