Russian-born, independent dressmaker Irina Sigal moved from her native country nearly two decades ago with the goal of creating feminine designs that truly reflect the personal styles of her clients.

Now the designer, who currently operates out of Elkins Park, will open her own namesake boutique in Rittenhouse Square at 20th and Locust. In addition to her expanding RTW line, Sigal will also offer tailoring, clothing reconstruction and custom couture designs in her store. 

A Philadelphia fashion community staple, Sigal currently works with several high-end local boutiques to give her line more exposure, including Joan Shepp on Walnut St. Of Sigal, Shepp says, “She is, in fact, magic. Her vision is unbelievable, old world craft.” The designer's forte is specifically found in leather goods, bridal gowns and suiting dresses.

The grand opening will take place Thursday, Dec. 6, from 10 a.m. through 8 p.m., and it's open to the public. Sigal encourages attendees to bring new or like-new clothing donations to help Hurricane Sandy victims through the Salvation Army.


Event details: Boutique grand opening, Irina Sigal, 2038 Locust Street, Thursday, Dec. 6, 10 a.m.-8 p.m.
