Founder, Jessica Resendiz was born in Queretaro, Mexico on January 11, 1987, but was raised in San Diego most of her childhood . She began creating hair accessories as young as 8yrs old and throughout her early years she created everything she wore from hair accessories to clothing. At the age of 12yrs old her curiosity expanded until it became a huge interest to her to learn how to hand stitch and also began learning the whole process of using a sewing machine. By her Senior Year in High School her enthusiasm for Fashion became serious and she decided to pursue and attend Fashion School . With many fashion schools to attend around the country, she decided to take her career path to The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandise in Los Angeles, California. This is where all her creativity began to be noticed and admired by professors, school staff, and college friends. She then realized that her creativity was something special and started creating hair accessories & apparel to sell at art shows, events, and fashion shows. During her 3 years at FIDM, her knowledge for fashion became more well defined from illustrating, sketching, pattern-making, fabrication, branding, merchandising, and marketing.
In June 2011, Jessica Graduated FIDM majoring in Fashion " Product Development" & Business . After graduating, she focused on building her own brand and developing her own concepts into designs. And so RAGGEDYTIFF was born, where all her visions and creativity came to life. The name RAGGEDYTIFF came and was inspired by her 13yr old daughter Tiffany. She wanted to make sure she included her daughter’s name into her brand ,Therefore the name stood out and its unique funky name made a statement.
When Jessica is designing, she is inspired by her roots, childhood memories , Mexican heritage, Folk Art, Vivid Colors, Street Fashion, & Rare fabrics. RAGGEDYTIFF is for every daring woman who likes to be different and loves to be creative in her own sense of style. What is fascinating about Jessica is that she hand makes a huge % of her products ( from start to finish) she is known for using vivid Prints, illustrating intricate details, handcrafting each piece, hand painting every little detail & producing exquisite pieces of one of a kind.
