"I was looking for a dress to wear for an upcoming TEDx talk. Finding a great
outfit was really important to me because I knew that the video would be up on
the TED site with potentially hundreds of thousands of viewers! I immediately
thought of IGIGI because I love their clothes, I love Yuliya as a person, and I
feel good that they make their clothes here in the US.
They graciously offered to dress me for the event and I picked the Bardot dress. It was so perfect! It fit wonderfully and was comfortable to wear all day. I love the three quarter sleeves, the v-neck that shows a little cleavage while still being covered up, and the empire waist. I got so many compliments on it at the event and afterward."
"I am such a fan of the IGIGI line. The garments are always well-constructed and incredibly flattering. I am fortunate to have many IGIGI dresses in my closet because once you find a winner, you tend to trust that store to deliver beautiful dresses.
Right away, my eyes were drawn to the Bardot dress. I love that it’s almost like a little black dress, but then has a splash of unexpected scarlet hombre detail, going from darkest to brightest at the bottom.
The dress is fully lined and has a nice full skirt. The fabric of the skirt is more sheer, almost like a crinkled chiffon, although it’s much thicker than a chiffon. The top portion of the dress is a different fabric, more of a stretchy material that is very comfortable and leaves you free to move your arms around (I hate it when dresses make you feel constricted). You can see that I’ve pushed up the three-quarter length sleeves for this photo and it’s very comfortable. The high waistband is also this stretchy material so it sits very flattering.
This is another of those dresses that seems impossible to wrinkle, so I plan on taking it with me on our next trip to Mexico. While I’m retired now, this dress has a modest neckline that would be totally appropriate in an office setting or at an event where you didn’t want to show off the girls.
I was fortunate enough to visit the San Francisco design house during our trip in June 2010 and got to see their quality assurance and incredible design process up close. It was pretty impressive! "
"I Wore the dress on " Love the skin you're in" fashion show in Montreal on April 6th 2013.
I don't think it's the right dress for me cause it doesn't show enough cleavage and being a black woman even though I love color and love red I found it too dark. But I was impressed with how comfortable I was in it. And being a huge fan of IGIGI for years and also wasn't able to afford it it was an honor to wear an IGIGI design , so thank you!
Why am I a fan of IGIGI? well because it's gorgeous, it's classy, sexy, edgy sometimes and always surprising god I love it...looking for the time I could afford it."
