Redding Fashion Alliance…

RFA city guide

Redding Fashion Alliance was founded in 2015 by Jan Kearns, Robin Fator and Rachel Hatch. They started by answering the question: “What if Redding had a bustling fashion industry?” What started as an idea is now a fully functional non-profit organization. RFA is changing the quality of life in our community by fostering its creative economy, increasing living wage jobs, and providing designer guidance for high quality, small batch manufacturing of apparel, accessories and textile based products. With design, development, and small volume production studios in Redding, RFA creates an environment for independent designers and sewists alike. Since its inception in 2015, RFA has offered access to maker space; Beginning through advanced sewing and fashion design instruction; Workshops and networking events; Retail opportunities for local makers and designers; Collaborative programs with other local nonprofits that serve; populations with a compromised socioeconomic status; Workforce development for future industry employment.

RFA is proud to offer a complete suite of design, sourcing, development, and small volume production services, supporting novice and professional designers’ visions from inception to end product, in our small batch manufacturing facility, offering careful professional guidance along the way.

What sets us apart is our thriving Alterations business. Our immerging designer program has given us a great talent that has led us in developing this division of RFA. We support sustainable practices and demand for small batch production providing American made products and transparent production ethics.
