Our Story

Karen Escobedo

My love for design, prints, and dressmaking, paired with my overall frustration with mass produced garments found in local department stores, gave birth to RAINA LA RUE.

I created RAINA LA RUE to pay homage to American dress making over the years. Inspired by classic and timeless dresses of generations past, I’ve designed dresses and accessories that are comfortable for everyday wear and sophisticated enough for just about most occasions. You don't have to wear tights to be comfortable.

All RAINA LA RUE pieces are thoughtfully designed and ethically made in Houston, TEXAS.
