Today in The Lounge, Nick sits down with celebrated California designer Raili Clasen. Raili has a very interesting and unique background and a great story. She is self-trained but she has become a highly sought-after designer in her native Orange County.
Raili got her start in design late on. She originally trained to be a newscaster, and then she had a stint as a flight attendant before getting into the surf industry. The famed designer Mossimo was a family friend and he encouraged Raili to pursue a marketing role in the surf industry, which led to her launching the Roxy line for Quicksilver.
