Welcome! I’m excited to take you on a tour behind the scenes to see how our collections come together at Rachel Pally and share some of our company's values.
As a native Angeleno, supporting my local economy has always been non-negotiable. This is the city where I’m raising my kids and where I work, so it’s important to me that I participate in generating capital in my city. As a company, we also support women’s rights, environmental causes, and other social issues that are close to my heart.
I am lucky to surround myself with talented people in all aspects of my business who share my commitment to quality.
It begins in our warehouse building in the Arts District. All of our design, product development and shipping take place in downtown L.A. This also lets me keep my eyes on every single detail.
The cornerstone of our brand has always been the luxurious fabric we use. Over the past fifteen years we have expanded our range of fabrics from our signature jersey and knits to include luxurious gauze, linen, and crepes, all of which are intended to feel as amazing as they look. As I have evolved as a woman, as a mother and as a designer, my personal style has shifted and I’ve been able to bring the brand along to match my sensibilities.
Thank you so much for following along over all of these years as my vision has grown and shifted! It’s very exciting to be able to allow my first baby, my business, to grow and change as I grow and change. It’s such a reflection of who I am and have been at so many stages of my life!
From my parents, to the shipping department and everyone in the process, our team has worked together for many years. I depend on them for their expertise…but, we also share our life passages and a lot of daily laughter.
Not only do we like working together, we genuinely all like each other!
Laura and I have collaborated on every style for 10 years now. I think of her as my other life partner! Each step of the way, we’re devoted to making the most beautiful clothes for you (and for all of us!)
SOCCORRO'S PATTERN MAKING TOOLS.
Soccorro, who has been with me for many years is our expert pattern maker. Working from sketches and by draping on a form, she brings our creative visions to life!
A RAINBOW OF THREADS IN OUR SAMPLE ROOM.
THESE ARE BUNDLES OF CUT PIECES READY TO BE MADE INTO FINAL GARMENTS.
Once we settle on a final design, our clothes are sewn nearby at a small, family owned workshop in the neighborhood. We’re very lucky to partner
with so many dedicated, talented people. They care as much about every
piece they make as we do. We are committed to a fair wage and to safe
and healthy working conditions for all people involved in our process,
as are all of our contractors.
Our finished products are stored in the boxes below for easy access shipping. (Shhh don’t tell Sergio, our Warehouse Manager, that I’m taking something for myself without a pick ticket!)
