Take a peek inside the colorful and stunning IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel spring/summer lookbook! The beautiful Kailee O’Sullivan models the latest collection, appropriately named A Breath of Fresh Air. This vintage-inspired designs “celebrates the rejuvenation of femininity, vibrancy, and liveliness the spell of Spring unveils in all women.” It has a very Mad Men-esque vibe, doesn’t it? I’m in awe of the colors and soft sillhouettes.
“My design sensibility has always had a vintage vibe to it, so this season I decided to go all the way and just have a blast with stylistics. I took the old covers of Vogue magazines from early 20’s all the way trough 50’s and created homage to the history of style.” Said Yuliya Raquel, Founder, Creative Director and Lead Designer.
I’m officially in love with the last wedding dress! Which design is your favorite?
