Our Story

I started Nerecina because I want every woman to look and feel beautiful regardless of her size. My goal is to create size-inclusive dresses that’s luxurious, customizable, and ethically made.

I’m Jenine and I am the founder and designer of Nerecina. After just three years as a celebrity tailor, I realized that the fashion industry is more favorable to women who wear a single-digit size. As a woman who is a double-digit size, this does not sit well with me. I rarely see curvy women wearing luxury fashion and couture— even plus size A-list celebrities have a hard time getting designers to dress them! Beauty is not a one-size-fits-all. I believe that any woman, regardless of her size, should have access to luxury fashion and couture— it’s for us, too.

I want to use my platform and creativity as a designer to make an impact in the fashion industry. I started Nerecina so that every woman can finally experience what it feels like to wear a stunning piece of clothing that’s created for her shape and size.

The Brand

Based in Los Angeles, Nerecina is a size inclusive, made-to-order fashion brand that creates luxurious, customizable and ethically produced formal, bridal and everyday wear. 

Nerecina is luxury and couture fashion for ALL sized women. Our mission is to design and create bridal and formalwear that is luxurious, customizable, and ethically made— without worrying about the size tags. Our couture pieces are made-to-order and ethically produced in Los Angeles.

At Nerecina, we believe in making clothes that fit your body, while most brands expect your body to fit their clothes.

How does Nerecina make my clothes?

Here is the process of making each couture gown, from concept to creation. From designing, patternmaking, cutting, sewing, sampling, and fitting, your gown is handmade from start to finish in Los Angeles. Each gown is made-to-order. The secret to our beautiful pieces is ethical production in the USA and high quality fabrics.

When a you choose your favorite dress from our website and place an order, we take your measurements virtually using the latest technology available, design the dress according to your measurements, cut the fabric, and then our artisan tailors sew the gown of your dreams before it's shipped to your doorstep.

What is ethical production?

At Nerecina, our process not only ensures that our customers get the best fitting clothes of the finest quality and price, but it also ensures that our production process doesn't produce excess wastage, leaving a negative carbon-footprint with every dress that we manufacture. We also ensure that we get our raw materials from ethical sources. 

Nerecina's goal is to change the way women shop by creating stunning, unique designs in luxurious fabrics, doing away with categories and ideals, and offering customization options for every style we sell— while being socially responsible and promoting body positivity. For any special event, you'll look and feel as amazing as we all should.
