About

Lace Love

As we wandered through the shops of Haight Ashbury trying to find corsets and other design ideas, my friend and I came up with the name Ragavon. A mix of rags to riches, a style I had begun to turn into my own, with upcycled designs from lace scraps and vintage corsets and slips, along with a hint of my ridiculously long last name, vonEhrenkrook. I had just sold a dress on Etsy for the first time, and already had more interest in my designs.

I have been sewing since I was about 13. My mom taught me the basics of assembling a garment, and I just took off from there. I used her vintage Singer sewing machine that she had bought when she was about 12 years old. Hand-me-downs were my muse. Anything I could find from the goodwill, or a re-use store, I would envision unique one-of-a-kind dresses or skirts, upcycled from materials thrown by the wayside. I loved the idea of reusing materials and giving them a new life through these refreshed garments.

It wasn't until I began studying at California College of the Arts that I truly understood the damage the fashion and textile industry had on the environment. Taking their eco-sustainable fashion courses helped me shape my designs in hope to make as much of a difference as I can, and enlighten my customers of the fast fashion destruction.

I love making these designs and hope to continue improving my work with more fun ideas for you beautiful people of the world.

    I have been making my own designs since I was about 13. I am a one-woman sweatshop, making dresses and sexy designs as a part-time job. I love making clothes for people, and am currently taking sewing classes to learn more skills!

Additional policies and FAQs
I am happy to work with you on custom orders. Please note that my prices for my current listings does NOT always reflect my custom work pricing. For most custom seamstress/design work, my rate is $20.00 per hour, plus material costs.

I require a 50% down deposit or a full down-payment to begin custom orders. I will not begin processing the order until a form of payment has been made.

If you have a specific budget in mind, please let me know, I am happy to work within your budget as much as I can.

There are 3 key factors in custom work: time, price, and quality. You can only pick 2 of those options. If you want something fast and cheap, I can't guarantee you'll get the highest quality. If you want something quality and in your price range, it may take me a lot longer in order to find your materials and fit your budget.

Feel free to message me your custom design, and I will promptly respond with a price quote and a general timeline of when you can expect receive your order.
