Raven + Lily was founded as a non profit in 2008 through the volunteer efforts of several Los Angeles based designers. Kirsten Dickerson and Sophia Lin were the original founders who partnered with local designers that wanted to give back to women worldwide.
From 2008 -2011 Raven + Lily was a non profit fiscally sponsored by Tirzah International and then moved into the for profit social business model in 2011 based in Austin, Texas. With the combined experiences in both the design world and humanitarian/non-profit world, Raven + Lily was at the forefront of exploring how to develop a brand that could have a significant impact on women without compromising quality or style. While Kirsten remains at the helm of Raven + Lily today, the company will always be grateful for all the women who believed in its mission and helped contribute to making Raven + Lily a significant player in the ethical fashion movement today.
