About me
RJ Rivera has been working in the industry for over 5 years. His dream of becoming a designer became a reality in 2007 when he created RJ Jeans a new line of industrial denim jeans for men. While working with other local designers around the San Francisco Bay Area he networked his way into the San Francisco fashion scene. He worked with many local models, designers and photographers all around the Bay Area showcasing his talent in any way he could, to get his name out there.

     RJ then begin creating many different collections throughout the years, adding button ups, pants, jackets,  swimwear for men and dresses, skirts, pants, swimwear and couture gowns for women.  He had many mini collections from RJ Latino, Dark Glam, RJ Tini and Mysteria to his latest collection Aftermath. RJ worked hard creating more and more while sticking by his Latin roots as it has helped him to become more noticed. He pushed through the obstacles, letting nothing stand in his way, eventually moving from local club shows to his own shows throughout the SF Bay Area, Sacramento and LA. He began working with many charities from PADRES Contra El Cancer to the Make A Wish Foundation and helped to raise money for many great causes.  He has also been featured in Vixta Magazine, Current TV, Swagga Digital Magazine, Despierta America (SAC) and Sacramento Fashion Week.

Currently RJ has been very involved with his boot camp that he runs once a month for aspriing models, actors and entertainers of all kinds. He has always had a passion for helping people and this was a great way for his team to give back and help out people trying to get into the industry or to learn more.  Boot Camp is a great day filled with learning, networking and a lot of postive energy as well as dicovering new faces for the industry.

RJ is also creating more of a more high end look and a more creative, edgy style which can be seen in his latest collection Aftermath  And this fall (2012) there will be a new look and style that is setting the bar higher for his collections to come.

There is a lot more in store for RJ Rivera. Many changes have already begun and there are many more collections to be created, many more designs to become reality and many more of RJ’s dreams to come true.

RJ also runs a boot camp for new models, actors, and entertainers ...
RJ Rivera's Boot Camp is a 4 hour event where aspiring models, actors or anyone that may want to get into the entertainment industry are guided in the right direction to help build their confidence, train in all aspects of the industry from runway, photography, presentation, speaking in public and more. It is a great way to help people that want to start in the industry, but may not know what to do or where to go. RJ and his team of professionals are there to help give them the knowledge, training and give them the chance to learn from professionals, as well as learn and network with other people that are on the same level as them. RJ's goal is to help start aspiring models and entertainers and get them working in the industry.

It is $65.00 (50.00 for returning guests) for a full four hour session with RJ and his team. Besides the training and experience of working with top industry professionals, people that attend will also have a mock go see with RJ himself which will help to get a feel of the real industry. Another added bonus is that the people attending will be able to meet some amazing people that can help them out in many ways from hiring them for work, helping get them signed with an agency and the one person that stands out may possibly get a chance to be in one of RJ’s campaigns, promos and maybe more.

Overall it is a great event that is set up to get people started in the industry and to structure them in every way they can be structured and to build their confidence levels so they can present themselves in the best way possible. The positive attitudes and vibes help motivate and guide everyone in the right direction to find where they best fit in the industry. It is also a great environment and above all a great positive networking event that can help start the careers of some amazing people.
