Renata Raps and Designs

Renata Raps and Design’s story starts with a woman named Renata Gennero Nelkin. Renata's dream of having a women-run fashion line became her reality in the fall of 2016 when she launched her products at the San Antonio, Texas Fashion Week.

"I originally started my line with a very unique, and specialized Wrap that is ornately designed and one of a kind. I have since then expanded my exclusive Collection to include the most amazing, chic and elegant fashion line," says Renata. Since then, Renataraps and Designs has moved from her single sewing machine in her garage to an established company and factory located in Houston, Texas.
Not only the wraps, but the complete collection is extremely versatile. The designs come in many different colors, styles, shapes, fabrics and sizes, but they all have one thing in common. All of the creations are easy to wear. They are soft, fashionable, fun, extremely comfortable and guaranteed to be a showstopper. All of the fabrics are hand picked by Renata herself to ensure the best quality, uniqueness, comfort and overall beauty in each and every garment. One of the company’s favorite aspects is that the fabrics are continuously changing, making you feel like you are always dressed in a one-of-a-kind garment.

As the high-fashion collection continues to grow and expand, so has Renata’s visions for the future of her company by creating a style that allows all women of all shapes and sizes to feel and look beautiful, sexy, confident, and fashionable. Renataraps and Designs have now expanded their inventory to include a multitude of exquisite mix and matching tops, palazzo pants and pencil skirts. They also offer a vast array of seasonal bathing suit covers, and faux fur vests and jackets.
