Hello, I’m Raquel. I was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, the second largest city in Brazil, famed for its Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, Sugarloaf Mountain, and the Carnaval festival. I've always embraced different cultures and experiences so I moved to the U.S. to attend college in Massachusetts and decided to stay. Today I call San Diego my home. I love the weather, the slow-setting winter sun, and Comic-Con. However, I never forget where I come from.
I’ve always had a passion for fashion and design. Growing up, I watched my grandmother and mother create beautiful clothes from hand-picked fabrics. I am not an artist or designer but I can confidently say that I am able to take my knowledge of fashion, design and current trends and interpret this knowledge into different styles. I am very proud to be an Ambassador of Virgil James, for what it represents, and for the products.
