I just love me some IGIGI clothing. Did you catch me on their blog recently? I wear it in 90% of my blog post. So when I just found out about their latest collection called “Fresh Sophisticate” I was all over it. Below is the official press release.
İnspired by all the vivid colors, allure, and variety nature embodies, the new Fresh Sophisticate collection from IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel is a refreshing testament to female diversity, beauty and uniqueness. Enchanting bright hues, soft pastels, paisley, floral, and pin-dot prints in feminine interpretations bloom in pieces that will captivate the bold and beautiful fashion lover who is not afraid to stand out and turn heads. Beautiful plus-size model Stephanie Dorr graces the campaign images shot in studio by Marc de Paola with contrasting backgrounds to show strength and grace.
