About the Brand

Giana Abreu-Christopher, professionally known as Regal, is a mother of five, a self taught seamstress and designer from St. Croix, US Virgin Islands.​

CEO and founder of designs by Regal, a brand created to encourage an appreciation for Caribbean culture and how we can further express pride for our heritage through the use of madras fabric.

Innovator of many unique statement accessory pieces and crafts, she is also the innovator behind the "Rock Your Crown" signature apparel line, an extension of the Regal™ brand designed to make a statement of self confidence and royalty.

Regal seeks to influence clients to define their style with bold, colorful, trending madras apparel and crafts .

With products reflecting island apparel reinvented to keep cultural identification alive with the use of the Caribbeans identifying and unifying print, madras. 

Madras, a brightly colored tartan print originating in India, making its way to the Caribbean islands during the diaspora.

It is the fabric that speaks of our rich and vibrant island colors intertwined with the lines of tradition, history and culture working together to create a tapestry of beauty that is the Caribbean.

 

As a constant innovator in an effort to continue the educational growth behind the madras fabric, Regal has also launched 2 new educational courses called Sip N Wrap and Paint N Wrap. One features a brief history on madras fabric and headwrapping mixed with hands on tutorials while the other is a more artistic twist making it easier for children to get involved.
