Igdaliah (Iggy) is from the small island of St. John in the U.S Virgin Islands and is a graduate from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). She started drawing at a very young age, sewing since she was seven, then continued all through middle and high school. Since then, she has gained the drive to pursue fashion design, fibers, and fine art. In 2019 she left SCAD with a B.F.A in fashion design with focus in street and resort wear for both women’s and men’s markets.
Iggy has a great appreciation for the art of making a garment; hand stitched, couture. She fell in love with textile designing, silk, denim, and other practical fabrics that we use day to day. Many of her concepts tend to bring unpopular opinions to the limelight.
Coming from a Caribbean background, she’s usually inspired by her own culture and the cultures of others. Traveling and learning about other places traditions, dress, foods, practices, and religions have heavily influenced her work.
In 2019 she founded her namesake brand. IGDALYAH is an indie ready-to-wear brand that challenges the rules of fashion while bringing unpopular opinions to the forefront of the industry. Engraved in our identity, we strive for a unique design aesthetic that will contribute to the ongoing fashion conversation. We quality check our products to be sustainable and produced ethically. Every piece is made in house with care, thought, time, and consideration for each client.
