    Gems! Are you ready for an amazing Labor Day weekend? I hope you have wonderful weather and a spectacular time no matter where you are on this amazing globe of ours!


    Almost home from Japan! I can’t wait to tell you all about our incredible experience with ShopChannel Japan and all of the amazing people we met and things we saw…but I think I’ll wait until next week when I’m fully rested so I can share all of the details with you with a clear, un-jet-lagged head! I can’t wait!


    In the meantime, back home in Los Angeles my fabulous team had the honor of dressing some gorgeous models in custom Nikki Rich for the Genlux Magazine Fall Issue party. I am told they were all really lovely girls! They carried coveted Mahtab Mojab bags, and looked amazing in our gowns. The party was at the beautiful Sofitel hotel in Beverly Hills where drinks flowed and the crowd buzzed about the fashion.


    As you know, we are so in love with Genlux Magazine and it was our honor to be included in the mix.


    Have an amazing long weekend everybody! See you soon!





    East Meets West in Las Vegas #NikkiRich

    by  • August 23, 2013 • 2013 fashion trends for women, Fashion, Latest fashion trends 2013, Latest fashion trends for women, ShopChannel Japan, Shopping


    Are you ready for the weekend?!?!?!


    I know I am!


    We just got back from Las Vegas, the city that quite literally never sleeps, where we had such an amazing time! I know I’ve already mentioned how great it was to see so many incredible people and take in all of the innovative fashion, but the highlight of our time there was our meeting with ShopChannel Japan.


    A handful of their top executives came out to meet Richie and me for dinner at Sirio Ristorante in the Aria hotel. The food was delicious, the company was incredible and we spent a lot of time talking about our fall collection, our trip to Japan, and all of the great things to come for Nikki Rich. Richie was the consummate businessman and had our large group mesmerized. Such a cool guy! Such a wonderful business partner! I just could not ask for anything more.


    It feels good to be back in LA, if only for a few days. Time to keep packing and decide which shoes will make the final cut into my suitcase.


    Have a great weekend gems!






    Love & Ace & our Society Maxi Skirt #NikkiRich

    by  • August 22, 2013 • 2013 fashion trends for women, Blogging, Fashion, Latest fashion trends 2013, Latest fashion trends for women, Press, Shopping, Street Style, Styling


    There is nothing like waking up in Vegas! We wrapped up a full day of Magic yesterday, meeting new people, seeing old friends, and marveling over the extraordinary designing talent out there. Row after row, and booth after booth…it was all so uplifting and inspiring.


    In other news, I saw that Kat, the lovely lady who created Love & Ace, featured our Society skirt in her blog today. I love seeing fashion bloggers wearing Nikki Rich, and think Kat looked really wonderful in the skirt. It was totally flattering on her and I thought it was great how she made it feel summery and fresh with a white woven top, white leather tote and bright red sunglasses. It turns out the blog was picked up by PopSugar Fashion too…so that made a great day even better!


    By the way, we are still featuring the Society skirt in our online shop. It’s been marked down to $49.60 so don’t wait! Get one while they last!



    Where in the World is Nikki Rich?

    The Magic trade show is in full swing, and today we are on our way to Vegas, baby. While we did not take our own booth for this show, the largest global market week for contemporary fashion, we are super excited to meet some new buyers, distributors and sales reps, as well as spend some time visiting the amazing buyers, distributors and sales reps who have been devoted to us since the beginning.


    After the magic (no pun intended) of Las Vegas, life is going to get pretty hectic for me, but in a super great way. After this show I’ll be heading back to LA so I can finish packing for our trip to Japan, and Richie and I will land there in plenty of time for our August 27th debut on ShopChannel. We have been talking about this for so long, it’s hard to believe it’s happening so soon!


    From there we’re off to London to meet some fantastic new buyers and hopefully bring Nikki Rich across the pond! It’s always been a dream of mine to have our line carried in the UK and it looks like we’re getting a little closer to that being a reality.


    Last, but absolutely not least, we’ll be on our way to Chicago in September to visit the Von Maur store there. Von Maur is a super cool department store with locations in the mid-west and more recently the south, and they will be carrying select pieces from our fall 2013 collection in every location.


    Don’t worry, I promise to keep you updated with posts and pictures from the road!

    Shoes, bags, bracelets…I’m obsessed with accessories!

    by  • August 14, 2013 • 2013 fashion trends for women, Accessories, Fashion, Latest fashion trends 2013, Latest fashion trends for women, Street Style, Styling, Uncategorized


    Gems! I hope you’re all having an amazing week. We’ve been busy here in Los Angeles; packing for Tokyo, getting excited for the new website launch, designing for spring, talking to buyers about our Resort and Holiday collections…


    It’s exhausting, but in a super amazing way!


    On another note, while you know I am normally hyper-focused on fashion, some other things have been really catching my eye lately. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen some of the pictures I posted today…the shoes…the gloves…the bracelets…


    I’ve become a little obsessed with the shoes and accessories that we all know can really pull a look together, or change its direction altogether. If you read this blog regularly you know I’m always commenting on the shoes that celebrities and stylists pair with our custom designs, and you also know that I just love most of their choices.


    Just this afternoon I was combing through the New York Times Style section when I came across a really fun “Street Style” slideshow featuring bracelets. So many funky styles…so many beautiful and creative bracelets.


    …and speaking of creative bracelets, check out the beautiful ankle bracelets below.


    Have a happy Wednesday Gems!





    Insider Correspondant Keltie Colleen in Custom Nikki Rich for the 2013 Teen Choice Awards

    by  • August 12, 2013 • 2013 fashion trends for women, Awards Show, Celebrity, Fashion, Latest fashion trends 2013, Latest fashion trends for women, Press, Styling, Television


    I think the thing I love the very most about the Teen Choice awards every season is the fashion! It is always so young and fresh and fun, and this year was no different. While some of my favorites definitely included Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato, my absolute favorite was the super lovely Insider correspondent Keltie Colleen who walked the blue carpet in custom Nikki Rich!


    Cut from leather with a fun, fresh, floral print, this open sided hooded mini dress was designed to take your breath away. We love the teal bandeau top she wore underneath, and of course, the shoes…you know we always look at the shoes! Gorgeous strappy sandals…you just can’t go wrong!



    Fabulous Fashion Blog Ash ‘N’ Fashn Featuring Nikki Rich!

    by  • August 9, 2013 • 2013 fashion trends for women, Blogging, Fashion, Latest fashion trends 2013, Latest fashion trends for women, Shopping, Styling


    It was so fun to wake up today and find an email in my inbox from a great friend letting me know that the ever-so-lovely Ashley Tarkington, who writes the adorable blog Ash ‘n’ fashn, wrote a blog today featuring Nikki Rich!


    I had the pleasure of meeting Ashley after she requested the dress to possibly feature in her blog, and she was just the loveliest girl. She’s based in Los Angeles, works as a wardrobe stylist, and writes her blog because, like me, she needs an outlet “to share her love of fashion, styling, beauty, home décor and everything in between.”


    Ultimately, the dress she chose to feature is one of our favorites. It’s a delicious animal print wrap dress that fit her like a well-made glove. She styled it beautifully and we seriously could not be happier!


    We love Ash ‘n’ Fashn and we love Fashion Bloggers. Thank you Ashley for featuring us today!



    Nikki Rich…We’re Full of Surprises!

    by  • August 8, 2013 • 2013 fashion trends for women, Celebrity, Fashion, Latest fashion trends 2013, Latest fashion trends for women, Press, ShopChannel Japan, Uncategorized


    If you read our blog last night you would already know that we are working super hard to redesign our current Nikki Rich Clothing website. We do love what we have up now, but we also realize that it’s time to grow and change. You’ve got to have growth, personally and professionally, to keep learning and making your way through life I think. All of us at Nikki Rich are really excited about all that lies ahead of us.


    The new site is going to be so great, with so many more things going on than we currently have. Images, Videos, Music! And while I don’t want to give away all of our surprises, there is one thing I can share with you today. Well, two things.


    A few weeks ago, just about the time we co-hosted the Genlux Summer Issue party, Richie and I had the honor of working with world-renowned photographer and 838 Media Group founder, Ash Gupta. Ash has worked with just about everyone who is anyone, and his fashion and editorial work always leaves me breathless. One of the perks of my job I guess…meeting and working with some amazingly talented people!


    I’ve been thinking about it all day, and while I know I probably should wait and save the images for the new site or as an exclusive for ShopChannel Japan or Von Maur or something, I JUST CAN’T! I’ve attached two new pictures of Richie, and me, and you can only see them here!


    Please check back for more surprises! We definitely have more in store!



    The Future of Nikki Rich…Onward and Upward

    by  • August 6, 2013 • 2013 fashion trends for women, Fashion, Latest fashion trends 2013, Latest fashion trends for women, ShopChannel Japan, Uncategorized


    We all have to ask ourselves, over and over again, how to stay fresh and relevant in our lives. Both personally and professionally this can be a challenge to all of us each and every day. It’s so important to stay connected to the people we love and the things we love to do, and there is no better way to do that then to express all that we have inside…as much as we possibly can.


    At Nikki Rich we are constantly trying to find new ways to channel our creativity and bring the very best of it to you. We have said before and are thrilled to say again how truly blessed we feel debuting on ShopChannel Japan and in Von Maur later this month, and with the calm before this storm my creative energy has been totally elevated.


    With that said, I am really excited to let you all know that, right now, we are in the middle of redesigning our website! While we love who we are, we also know it’s time for a shift in perspective. We spent a lot of time bringing love to the current site, and in a way I will be sad to see it go, but I am also super excited about all that we have to offer now and how we can show it to all of you!


    We plan to launch the new design super soon, so please keep your eye closely on us. We want you to be a part of this exciting time in our lives.


    So, as we all greet another beautiful day, remember to always stay true to who you are and what you love to do…and don’t be afraid to tell people about it. Find what you love and stick to it.



    Friday, I Love You (and TokyoFashion.com)!

    by  • August 3, 2013 • 2013 fashion trends for women, Fashion, Latest fashion trends 2013, Latest fashion trends for women, ShopChannel Japan, Street Style


    Gems! Are you ready for the weekend? While it was a great, great week full of music, fashion and fun, I have to admit I was keeping my eye on Friday and I’m glad to say it’s finally here! I’m ready to see some great friends and have some fun! In thinking about the days and weeks ahead, it’s really all about getting things ready for our trip to Japan. Richie and I have been working with ShopChannel Japan to make sure every detail is taken care of so our debut in the market will be the very best it can be. I just can’t explain how excited I am!


    In order to keep my feet on the ground I spend any spare time I have (which, trust me, isn’t much) continuing to prepare to embrace the culture of Tokyo. The more I search for information, the better it gets.


    Today I visited what has become one of my favorite sites, TokyoFashion.com, and found an article, published today, highlighting “Japanese Street Fashion Trends – Summer 2013.” It is fabulous and I just had to share it. I won’t give away too much, but between the cropped tops, sheer tops, high waist pants/shorts/skirts, and the girls who wear them…I’m in love! Some of the other trends will quite simply blow your mind, so sit back, relax and get ready to embrace Tokyo fashion!


    Here’s to a great weekend! Enjoy!
