☆ ABOUT US ☆

 

Our Brand

Created by founder Alyssa Tran in July, 2018, Rave After Rave operates on the principle that everybody should be able to find something that helps them express themselves in a way that allows them to feel, do, and be whomever they want to be. By offering a wide variety of styles and prints to choose from, we hope to offer something for everyone.

When it comes to the musical festival scene, we know that uniqueness is abundant and that every individual within the scene is special and unique in themselves. Because of this, we hold strongly to the belief that our products should reflect the variety of people wearing Rave After Rave. This approach sets us apart from other festival clothing companies as we incorporate a visual influence of the rave community throughout our entire brand in order to give life to our products, just like our customers do. Deep consideration goes into each fabric print, style cut, and even product name offered in our shop because we understand and value the depth that our customers put into our clothing as a form of self expression. 

Our products are designed & made with loads of love, rave after rave.

 

How Rave After Rave was Born- A Note From Our Founder

“I honestly would’ve never thought I would be doing what I’m doing! I mean, I’ve always been super crafty and was interested in creating apparel for certain shows and events. In high school my friend Shaylin and I started our own tie dying shirt business, I made my own rave bras, and I dabbled in vinyl heat transfer apparel so I’ve always had an interest in the craft and the scene. Rave after rave, festival after festival, my love for festival fashion and how its changed over the years grew and developed stronger over time. After buying a ticket for a show or festival I would instantly become so excited to start shopping for clothes. It was quite difficult for me to find what I wanted most of the time because (1) I’m very petite so it’s hard to find clothes that fit me and (2) it was sometimes a struggle to find exactly what I was looking for. I always had an interest in trying to “match” the theme or the vibe of the show/festival. For example, if I’m seeing Illenium I’d probably want to wear something orange and flowy, but if I’m seeing Excision I’d probably want to wear something dark... or dress up as a dinosaur.

One day, I finally decided to buy a sewing machine and taught myself how to make my own outfits. My sister saw some of the clothing pieces I made and said, “you should start selling these” and that’s how I got the idea. A few weeks later, I created Rave After Rave and opened up my online shop. As my business started to grow, I decided to fully immerse myself and take on my business full time! I can't say that it's been "easy" running a business alone but I want people to know that with a lot of passion and a little fire in your soul, you can absolutely do anything you put your mind to. I love my job because discovering new fabric prints and creating new clothing styles genuinely excites me. It's fascinating that I am able to create things with my own two hands that make other people feel so confident and comfortable in their own skin. I’m proud that my unique branding is tailored to the rave scene, which is why I started to make rave wear to begin with and I am so excited to be able to share my love and joy with my customers! Thank you for being a part of our family rave after rave and for sharing this beautiful journey with me!”

☆ RAVE AFTER RAVE TIMELINE ☆

2018- Etsy

Our shop opened for business on July 28, 2018. We closed our Etsy shop a year later and moved to our own website! Our Etsy shop gained over 3,000 sales with a 98% rate of 5-star reviews.

2018- Our First Fabric Print

Our first fabric print is what started this journey for us. It was named OkeeBabe- inspired by Alyssa's favorite music festival, Okeechobee Music + Arts Festival. The swirls on the fabric were so fun and fitting for the festival. This single-handedly inspired the core branding behind Rave After Rave. 

2019- Our Lost Collection

After launching our brand new website in July 2019, we launched one of our favorite, as well as our fan favorite collection- The Lost Collection. This collection was inspired by another one of our favorite festivals- Lost Lands. The music scene inspires everything we do here at Rave After Rave. The idea of this collection was revolved around the music festival from the prints chosen to the names the fabric prints. The prints were named after people, places, and things involved with this festival.

2020- Evolving

While we remain self-taught in sewing and designing, we are constantly learning, growing, and evolving to bring fashion forward styles to the festival fashion scene. We have been so blessed to grow faster than we'd expect in the last 2 years (huge) thanks to our customers but there's nothing else we'd rather do than to continue to empower women one outfit at a time. We plan on continue to work our hardest and best to provide our customers with new and unique designs rave after rave.
