    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!

    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!

    Forgive My Minor Obsession With All Things Japanese!

    by  • July 31, 2013 • 2013 fashion trends for women, Celebrity, Fashion, Latest fashion trends 2013, Latest fashion trends for women, ShopChannel Japan, Shopping, Street Style, Styling, Uncategorized

     

    I think I’m turning Japanese! The countdown is ON and we are leaving in a little over three weeks for Japan! We have ShopChannel Japan fever these days as we are getting every last detail in order. It’s been amazing working with the people who are putting this all together and I can even begin to describe their enthusiasm for me and Richie and the brand. I just can’t wait to get there so we can see the sights, eat the food, and drink in the energy of Tokyo. I’m sure it’s going to be amazing.

     

    As I am constantly searching for inspiration, I have been going crazy on the internet lately, looking for every bit of information I can find about the culture and style of Japan. One site I came across is jmagazinescans, which literally shows the current covers of all of the top magazines, including Brand Joy, Biteki, Cool Trans (mens), Maquia, Tomotomo and Domani. While a lot is written in Japanese, which I don’t know how to read (yet!), it’s incredible to see how color plays such an important roll in everything. The covers are filled with handsome boys and beautiful girls with lots of copy and color, color, color!

     

    In addition to our collections, you know we also love to design custom creations for the red carpet. If you’ve been reading our blog, and following our facebook page at all (which I hope you have!) you would know that we’ve been very fortunate to dress so many amazing celebrities from Carrie Underwood to Brooke Burke and beyond. Well, now I have my eye on the red carpets of Japan and have my wish list of celebrities I would LOVE to dress. Ladies, I hope you’re listening! We just LOVE Rinko Kikuchi! She has starred in so many movies including Pacific Rim and Babel with Brad Pitt! Her look is so incredibly unique and we think she would look out of this world in some Nikki Rich! The exact same goes for Koyuki, the Japanese actress who played opposite Tom Cruise in The Last Samurai. Such exotic beauty.

     

    If you can’t figure it out already, I can’t wait to get to Japan! But I know that for now I’m looking at the Los Angeles skyline from my window and it’s time for me to stop searching and get back to work! The Spring 2014 Collection needs me!
