Our January Designer Spotlight is celebrated designer, Yigal Azrouël.
Born and raised in Israel of French-Moroccan descent and having traveled to locations metropolitan and remote, the designer draws inspiration from everything and everywhere: art, culture, architecture, nature and his hometown, New York City.
Yigal Azrouël launched his eponymous women's wear label in 1998 to critical acclaim.
Azrouël, a self taught designer, and who's signature aesthetic can be found in his expert draping, has evolved throughout the years through a myriad of forms and fabrics. His designs are always modern and fresh, with a precise attention to detail.

In Fall 2010, Yigal Azrouël launched Cut25, a contemporary brand concept, combining high fashion with a day-to-day simplicity.
The design sensibility is democratic in that it inspires individuality and creativity.
The inherent appeal of Cut25 is in the artisanal approach to design and the philosophy that unique and innovative fashion can be offered to those who seek it.
Something we adore about Yigal, is that he believes in giving back and does so through a variety of charitable causes including: Love Heals The Alison Gertz Foundation for Aids, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, among numerous others.
