Welcome! About Duchess and Goose

Rachel Nevarez | Designer behind Duchess and Goose

Hello and welcome to Duchess and Goose.  My name is Rachel Nevarez.  I am a full time fashion designer and production manager in the face paced Los Angeles fashion district.  I am also a mother, a wife, an entrepreneur, and a seamstress. I started Duchess and Goose as a creative escape; to break free from cookie cutter fashion and spend more time creating with my husband and two daughters.

As a family, we create small batch, handmade infant and toddler clothing combining whimsical prints with unique smocking bringing you a rare and beautiful addition to your loved one's closet.  All lovingly handmade in California.

I design, pattern, and sew all of our handmade items from the first snip to the last stitch. My husband, Jorge, comes from a family thats been in the pleating and stitching business for two generations. He handles the complex machinery and completes the technical steps that bring all of my pleating and stitching visions to life. Our two daughters help by picking their favorite fabrics, modeling my new designs,  and sorting thread and buttons on the side.
