His design career has flourished since graduation with the launch of a variety of his own clothing lines. In September 2002, he debuted Choic, a collection of trendy men's tops.

Randall's most ambitious collection to date, Randall Craig RTW (Ready-to-Wear) for 11-to-12-inch fashion dolls, was met with enthusiastic response when it hit the market in early 2004 and sold out immediately.
