IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel

In today’s interview, IGIGI’s designer and founder, speaks fondly of being born and raised in Ukraine. Yuliya reveals why, although she is not a full figured woman herself, she designs clothing for curvy women; witnessing her mother finding it difficult to find clothes that which fit and appeals to her, drove Yuliya to make it both her personal and professional mission to provide full figured women with the clothing they deserved.

“I realized that no matter what size a woman wears, she wants to look feminine, stylish and very attractive. The clothes that were available on the market at that time did not do justice to women who wore them. At that moment my personal and professional mission was formed,” says Yuliya.

Yuyila recounts how IGIGI was founded in 1998 and how the ‘sexy’ label’s name was brought to life by “taking a French name Gigi and making it ‘symmetrical’ by placing an ‘I’ at the beginning of the word.” Furthermore Yuyila explains how she later on “did a research online and found out that Igigi was the name of the ancient civilization’s gods; and the main goddess of the group was Ishtar – an ancient Phoenician goddess of love and fertility.”

Drawing inspiration from anything that moves, from architecture and from literature Yuyila has created a plus size clothing label which truly enables curvy women to feel like a star.

IGIGI is a unique plus size clothing fashion label which strives to fulfill the needs and desires of the under-represented modern voluptuous women.
