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 moved at 19 to Italy. She grew up surrounded by art and inside the fashion world thanks to her mother. She embarked on a modeling career, then soon she realized to be more interested in shopping in textile stores deciding to take a new direction in her life. She moved to Milan to study design and she graduated from the prestigious Istituto Maragoni fashion school.
“Dresses are the essence of my work. My Brazilian roots; colours and prints, curves and architecture are my inspiration. I want my dresses to be feminine and sophisticated with the perfect flair of Italian craftsmanship.”
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 Antonia Milano, Matches Fashion, Russo Capri, among others.
"Dresses are the essence of my work. My Brazilian roots, colours and curves are my inspiration. I want my dresses to be feminine and sophisticated with the perfect flair of Italian craftsmanship. This incredible house designed by Oscar Niemeyer was the ideal setting for me to tell the story of my new collection. Long time friend Edgardo Osorio helped me to develop the perfect shoes to complete my collection.“
