A colorful and engaging behind the scenes video from the collection photo shoot makes the perfect watch for the fashion enthusiast who appreciates the creative process as well as the final product.
“I have been mesmerized by ancient Egypt since I was a child, and I have always dreamed of creating a collection based on my travels through ancient Egypt. I am so happy to have finally fulfilled that dream,” said Yuliya Raquel, Head Designer and Founder. “I was channeling Cleopatra’s femininity, her sense of style, and her love of luxury and jewels. My goal is to celebrate the powerful and unapologetic women of today with contemporary designs that provide luxurious and opulent glamour.”
Modern Day Cleopatra consists of casual-to-evening dresses and separates in lightweight georgette and wispy chiffon in the season’s hottest animal and abstract floral prints adorned with lavish, hand-beaded ancient Egyptian inspired embellishments with a modern twist. Asymmetric cuts and draping provide for a flattering fit while the use of gold lame lining under some of the chiffons creates a subtle yet luxurious shimmer. Versatile pieces provide for multiple styling options like cinching at the waist or wearing them drop-waisted. Prices range from $85 to $195
