Raina La Rue

My love for design, prints, and dressmaking, paired with my overall frustration with mass produced, fast fashion, gave birth to BUILD A DRESS. 

I created BUILD A DRESS to pay homage to American dress making over the years. Inspired by classic and timeless dresses of generations past, shop our designs, semi-custom designs or build your own line with our blueprint.

All BUILD A DRESS pieces are thoughtfully,  designed and ethically made in Houston.

Share your stories, photographs, & comments about your memories made in BUILD A DRESS apparel over the years. Take us down memory lane with you! hello@rainalarue.com
