– ABOUT –
The signature Italian high-end artisanal craftsmanship and the Brazilian joyful approach to life are the ingredients of the successful formula behind the Raquel Diniz fashion brand.
Rooted in a lively, chic aesthetic, combining easy elegance with subtle feminine sensuality, Raquel Diniz offers sophisticated collections of impeccably manufactured dresses, which are designed to add a confident kick to each woman’s wardrobe.
Born in Brazil, Raquel Diniz started travelling the world in her teenage years when she embarked on a modeling career. Soon she realized to be more interested in shopping at textile stores than posing in front of the camera and she decided to chase a new direction in her life. She moved to Milan and she graduated from the prestigious Istituto Maragoni fashion school.
While working for a Milan-based fashion PR firm, in 2012 Raquel Diniz started designing and producing her first made-to-measure dresses and her creations rapidly became popular among socialites in Milan, London and New York.
Encouraged by her clients’ enthusiastic feedbacks, Raquel Diniz launched her first full ready-to-wear collection in 2016.
A winning combination of flattering silhouettes and lively patterns, which Raquel Diniz designs herself in collaboration with the most prestigious Como-based silk specialists, define the brand’s offering.
Sophisticated constructions, which are injected with a sense of dynamic movement and which exalt the feminine body, are enriched by exquisite details in the versatile frocks dressing women from the morning into the night – with no change of outfit required.
Raquel Diniz collections are distributed worldwide and are currently available in a selection of high-end international retailers, including Barneys NY, Matches Fashion, Moda Operandi, Net-A-Poter, and United Arrow, among others.
– COLLECTION –
While designing her collection, Raquel Diniz continues to trace a deeply personal path, avoiding many of the tendencies of today’s fashion system. With her cosmopolitan charm and innate flair, Raquel immerses herself in the creative process by following only her intuition and refined sense of aesthetics. Her dresses, realized in pure silk and fine Italian weaves, seem to float in the air as they radiate a delicate allure, bringing three key words to mind: Lightness, Grace and Femininity. Raquel’s enchanting vision steers clear of any sensationalism or gross exaggerations. Her creations are defined by fluid though precise lines which trace and exalt the feminine body and emanate a quiet and sensual modern glamour.
A delightful elegance mixed with a practical and versatile wearability are signatures of Raquel’s designs. Exclusive silk prints and jacquards in soft fields of colour wrap the waist, flutter at the neckline and flow from the hip. A fine dynamic of pleated chiffon and a finely gathered loose and fluid sleeve come together in glamorous show of poetry and virtuosity.
