About the Designer
Every now and then a brand comes along that stands for something more than style. When Jenine Nerecina founded Cosmogyral in 2015, she set out to create feminine, modern formalwear that makes every woman look and feel beautiful, regardless of her shape and size.
A passionate advocate for body positivity, Jenine believes in clothing that fits the body, not bodies that fit the clothing. Growing up as a size 4, but now an adult at size 14, Jenine understands how clothing fits the body at any size. To this end, every Cosmogyral gown is made-to-order and personally tailored to each woman’s body.
Jenine’s talent and conviction are backed by impeccable craftsmanship and attention to detail. Since learning to sew at age 7 from her Grandmother in the Philippines, Jenine has been designing her own patterns, sourcing her own fabric and creating one-of-a-kind pieces. A tailor by trade in Los Angeles, she has done alterations for celebrity clients, runway productions, and the entertainment industry.
Jenine is active in every aspect of production and serves as the voice behind the brand’s inclusive advocacy. From design development to social media, photoshoots to fabric sourcing, Cosmogyral is a reflection of Jenine’s bold, determined personality and deep dedication to changing how womenswear is designed, created, bought and sold.
