Haus Page is the brainchild of award-winning luxury tomboy designers Dara and Nash Page. They’re a husband-and-wife team that met at NC State and have carried their love of the craft forward with small batch, sustainable designs created in Raleigh, NC, and sourced in the Carolinas. We believe in creating and curating beautiful clothing people will feel good about wearing. Pieces that are loved, that enhance personal confidence and success are your best friends that hang in your closet. We have our sample shop in Raleigh, NC, as well as a number of working partnerships in the Carolinas with others who also believe in sustainable craftsmanship: domestic fabric mills, cut and sew shops, and thread makers to name a few.
Nash grew up in the theatre and film industry on the East Coast, thanks to both of his parents, and considers himself a modern blacksmith. He’s worked in machine shops, including the NC State Wood and Metal Shop, Techshop RDU (as facilities manager), and currently works as a serial craftsman entrepreneur. Anything that deals with metal and engineering interests him. He’s designed armor, prop weapons, and robotic machinery. He also likes to fix industrial garment machines and work on IT systems. His shop nickname is Technomage for his ability to design, fix, and improve electronics. He runs the Haus Page sample shop and makes sure everything is in working order. He also uses his blacksmithing skills to craft his own pieces.
Dara grew up in the fashion apparel industry. Her family ran a specialty luxury womenswear store chain called Brownhills and remains connected to the apparel trade. In the past two decades she’s combined working for luxury high-end shops like Hertzberg Furs, Stitch Golf, and Techshop RDU with larger retail giants at $100+ million, such as JC Penney, Belks, Stein Mart, Lc Industries, and the NFL. She’s won numerous awards both for outstanding sales and product design, starting out as a retail sales associate in high school and college and then moving into patternmaking and technical design. She now works as a luxury tomboy fashion designer for Haus Page. You can find her most days creating new items or helping supervise small curated batches of high-end pieces inspired by Carolina masters. Her taste is a mix of contemporary ready-to-wear and unique art-to-wear pieces. Her art-to-wear pieces have been featured on a number of theatre stages, in art galleries, and on film sets over the past decade.
Other members of the Haus Page team include Laurie Prince, the staff editor who helps with press releases, marketing, and writing, and Trip Smith, the community manager who runs the help desk most days handling orders, shipping, returns, and exchanges. The company contracts with fashion industry professionals in the Carolinas to create their line each season
