Q. What kinds of dress customizations do you offer?

We’re all about helping you express your individual style to create glorious statement pieces for your wardrobe, so if you want something different let us know and we’ll see what we can do.
Q. Where are the clothes made?
Each of our gowns are carefully customized, cut and sewn in our partner atelier (custom tailoring studio) based in Kharkov, Ukraine. The atelier employs only most qualified and experienced master-seamstresses with 2+ years of formal technical sewing education and at least 10+ years of experience in the sewing field, hence the quality of our custom gowns is unparalleled.
Our quality cannot be compared to the mass produces items, as each dress sewn to perfection by the same seamstress, paying attention to every stitch and seam.
It takes an average of 15-25 hours to customize, cut and sew each Yuliya Raquel dress.
Q. Why do you manufacture in Ukraine and not in the USA?
Traditionally in the past Yuliya Raquel has been manufacturing her collection almost exclusively in the USA.
Due to her commitment to now offer her customers customized and personalized design to a woman’s unique taste and height, she is now offering custom made, not mass-produced garments.
The cost of any custom-made item is 6-8 times more expensive than an identical mass-produced one. If we continued to manufacture our custom dresses in the USA, our sewing cost would have to be from $150-$220 for simpler dresses and $250-$450 for the more complicated wedding dresses. Thus increasing the retail price of the custom gowns exponentially.
In her commitment to provide affordable customized designer apparel, Yuliya Raquel, found a way to empower women in her country of birth, Ukraine. By fairly compensating these amazing seamstresses for their hard work, while providing affordably priced designer collection custom-made for individual, beautiful and unique women who will buy them, she created a win-win business model.
