Here at Loading Dock Raleigh, we strive to do excellent work, support one another and do others good. We believe this happens best in the context of a diverse and supportive community. That's why we're excited to share our Meet Our Members blog series! Each week, we'll feature a member, business or non-profit who calls Loading Dock home and inspiring us through their creative work and mission. We hope you enjoy!

Founder and CEO of Reborn Clothing Co. Emily Neville has done more in 20 years, than most people do their whole lives.  Neville is a Sophomore at NC State, proving that age is just a number.  As a poly-science major with no business background, she has leveraged her leadership and service experience to become a successful entrepreneur.  Emily had a great idea, and she did something about it.  What could've been another idea eaten by fear and doubt, birthed into a company that is Doing Others Good and transforming the way we think about fashion.

 I think we all have pieces of clothing that we don’t really like wearing anymore. I would provide updates to my own clothes so I’d want to wear them again. Then that transformed into how can we do this for a lot more closets than just one, and how can we provide this as a service to people who have clothing that they don’t want to get rid of, but they’re not wearing anymore?

Reborn Clothing Co. takes clothing that people are no longer wearing and transforms it into useable products for them.  Emily believes that as consumers we can vote with our wallets. Consumers pushed the supply of organic, local food into grocery stores and we have the power to do that with fashion as well.  In a world that has pushed fast fashion, Neville is committed to slow fashion, choosing to buy ethically and locally.  As a consumer of sustainable fashion, Neville saw an opportunity to fill a gap by providing products made from your own clothing, thus Reborn Clothing Co. became a reality.

The most difficult part is finding a balance between being a college student and running this company.

Emily is also an Ambassador for us here at Loading Dock Raleigh!  When she's not in class at NC State or in a business meeting for Reborn, you can find her at our front desk! We love that she's part of our family and cannot wait to see Reborn Clothing Co. continue to grow and Do Others Good.  Find out more about our friend Emily and Reborn Clothing Co. on their Website, Facebook, and Instagram!
