Raquel Allegra's boundless creativity led her to explore fabric manipulation early on in her design career; using recycled fabrics from the Los Angeles County Prison System to experiment with signature shredding techniques. For AW16, the Cali-born designer maintained textural interest with creasing throughout this midi dress. The cotton silhouette is modest in tone, styled with a mandarin collar and subtle definition at the waist with gathering.
