Yigal Azrouel

Yigal Azrouel launched his eponymous women's wear label in 1988 to wide acclaim and began his participation with 7th on 6th's New York Fashion Week the following year.

Azrouel defined his aesthetic using high quality fabrics to drape ultra feminine, modern silhouettes. By August 2000, Azrouel opened his full service atelier and showroom in New York's Garment District, which continues to produce 60\% of the collection to date. The great success of these early collections allowed Azrouel to open his flagship boutique in February 2003 in New York's Meatpacking District, one of the neighborhood's pioneer retail ventures, helping pave the road for its cultural birth. The Yigal Azrouel Boutique, along with the award-winning website, has been singled out for its unique and innovative design, both collaborations with Dror Benshetrit.

In July 2004, Yigal Azrouel was inducted into the prestigious Council of Fashion Designers of America for his unique vision and has been an active member ever since. This vision has evolved throughout the years in myriad forms and fabrics but Azrouel is still known best as a self-taught, expert draper. His designs are always modern and fresh, with attention to detail and en element of surprise. The Fall 2007 season brought the Yigal Azrouel Collection to a new level with the debut of the first full Menswear Collection and capsule Accessories Collection. Simultaneously refined, cool and wearable, the Yigal Azrouel menswear collection redefines American sportswear and day dressing for the modern man.

Born and raised in Israel of French-Moroccan descent and having traveled to locations metropolitan and remote, Yigal Azrouel draws inspiration from everything and everywhere: art, culture, architecture, nature and his hometown, New York City.
