About Us


Paraders are women who dress for themselves and unapologetically parade their own style.

Hi, I’m Rachael Hammon, founder of The Paraders, marketer, and clothing designer. The Paraders is a vintage-heavy brand and blog that exists to showcase great style, interesting people with interesting stories, and to encourage people to do cool things that matter.
We are located in the heart of Portland, OR, and all of our products are made right here in America. 

Today

"The Paraders Skirt Shop" is a spinoff of my main collection "The Paraders".  The Paraders is a full collection of dresses and separates with a vintage touch, but The Paraders Skirt Shop is where I get to go crazy with skirts and only skirts. Right now, we offer a growing inventory of circle skirts, but eventually, I would love to have The Paraders Skirt Shop overflowing with skirts of all kinds. 

Ps. I'm working on a S/S 2016 collection of dresses and separates for The Paraders and you can see some details and follow the journey on the blog!

History

I started The Paraders on January 2, 2010 with one measly little vintage wallet that I put up for sale on Etsy. It grew in 3 years out of Etsy, into a separate online shop, a vintage blog, a warehouse office, a kickstarter project, a vintage-inspired dress collection, and with over 10 interns and employees of various kinds. Typing that last sentence alone was enough to make me smile from ear to ear remembering all of the tired but happy late nights, excitement of constant new projects, and wonderful people I was able to work with along the way.
