    Fun in the Hollywood Hills with Genlux Magazine Editor Amanda Eliasch

    by  • May 2, 2013 • Celebrity, Fashion, Music, Uncategorized


    Seriously, does the fun ever end? Last Saturday night I attended an amazing party given by Genlux Magazine fashion editor Amanda Eliasch. It was definitely a beautiful scene and Amanda’s Hollywood Hills home was overflowing with talent and beauty. Breathtaking views, delicious food, thought provoking conversations, incredible art, and most importantly a night of laughter with fantastic friends. You can read all about it in this British Weekly article that ran yesterday, and see pictures of me with Genlux Creative Director Stephen Kamifuji and British fashion designer Pam Hogg below.


    The evening featured a look at Pam’s designs and live performances by the talented Lisa Zane (Billy’s sister) and Charles Eliasch (Amanda’s son). They are both appearing (and singing) in Amanda’s recently completed movie, “The Gun, The Cake and The Butterfly.”


    The place was filled with talent and amazing sights to see…from the pretty faces, to the petals in the pool, to the pink piano…the fun never ends!

    Nikki Rich Loves Street Style 2013

    by  • April 19, 2013 • Editorial, Fashion, Shopping, Styling, Uncategorized


    I’ve been a little obsessed lately with “Street Style” images on the Internet. I love to be able to go on the web and look at real fashion on real people all around the world. Any day of the week I can check out sites like The Sartorialist and find beautiful, candid or semi-staged images of men and women from every continent dressed in some of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. Of course, The New York Times has been running their feature on Street Style for as long as anyone can remember, and that amazing man, Bill Cunningham has the job of the century, riding his bicycle all over Manhattan snapping pictures of the fashionable people of that electric city. I can’t help but give another nod to Boston this week and point out their version called BostonStreetStyle.com. For a city not known for fashion, they certainly do have some great style going on! And last, but certainly not least, I love driving around Los Angeles peeping at the people I  find out and about. This city definitely has a look of it’s own and I love it!


    It made me really start to think about “Street Style” and how great it is to be your own trend setter…to take an article of clothing, be able to wear it your own way, and rock your look. And while I love being a designer more than anything, I also love to put a look together and really make it noticeable. I was looking through the images of our spring collection, took one look at the Vivian skirt and remembered what a great time I had styling that shoot. The skirt is really lovely…easy and comfortable and crafted from a substantial, contrast striped, cotton modal fabric. While it can really go with anything I had a blast putting it together with our Una shirt, a pair of black peep-toe heels, and a wide, hip-slung metallic belt. Stunning!


    Tell us…how would you wear the Vivian? What are your styling tips? We want to know!



    Nikki Rich Desires Neon! Neon! Spring 2013 Trends!

    by  • April 17, 2013 • Editorial, Fashion, Makeup Trends, Shopping, Styling


    Sometimes I wake up and just want to bring it all back to basics….but I can’t.  No matter how hard I try, I always need to find at least one thing to make my look POP! I am always combing fashion magazines and my favorite online sites for the latest hair and makeup trends and today I found something that I L O V E! The UK Edition of Glamour magazine online has an amazing 42-page spread of spring makeup trends, and page 18, Neon! Neon! stopped me in my tracks. The image they provide is a beautiful blond lass with lovely light blue eyes, barely a stitch of makeup, and BRIGHT PINK LIPS! They look phenomenal and I need to find that lipstick! It made me think about a look we are currently showing in our online store that features a skirt we call “Desire.” Our model, dressed in the simplicity of a cream sleeveless top and the Desire, a long, black linen, wrap belted skirt, is already looking complete with gorgeous red lips, but now I would LOVE to see them finished in Neon Pink!



    Nikki Rich Spring 2013 Collection, Our Spellbound Dress is Available NOW!

    by  • April 13, 2013 • Fashion, Shopping, Styling, Uncategorized


    I don’t know about you, but I am so glad it’s Saturday. Time to rest and rejoice and rejuvenate. It’s been a busy week for Nikki Rich and our online shop has been buzzing. For those of you who have been shopping, we thank you. It’s really so very important to all of us that you are happy with your shopping experience and purchases, and so far the feedback has been amazing!


    It’s been so much fun to share the extra special details of each piece in the collection with you, so tonight we wanted to takes some time to tell you a little more about our Spellbound dress. You know as much as we do, that the most important thing about purchasing a dress is making sure that you not only look good, but also that you feel good in it. You want to wear a dress with confidence, know the cut is flattering your figure, and not have to worry about how it moves when you’re moving. You want to put it on, feel good, and forget about it.


    The Spellbound dress is crafted from a luxe linen fabric and just possesses so many desirable qualities. The v-neckline is flattering yet secure as the straps twist, wrap and cross low in the back…the empire waist is just high enough to keep you feeling secure as you glide into any room…the bias cut of the fabric gives this dress a romantic feel you won’t often find in a full-length dress…but what we love most of all is the splash of white circles that truly decorate the look. They draw the eye away from “this” or “that” so you can only see a beautiful dress. And for less than $100.? Seriously?


    Please don’t forget to visit our special sale where you can still find limited quantities of Fall merchandise at 30% off!



    Nikki Rich Spring 2013 Collection, Shop Online Now!

    by  • April 11, 2013 • Fashion, Shopping, Styling


    It’s our pleasure to introduce you to Bette.  When we first started thinking about spring and designing for the collection we just knew we had to create this perfect, versatile, lightweight, stylish shirt/jacket. I had recently found myself obsessed with black and white movies and it was with images of old Hollywood glamour dancing in my head that the influence for the entire collection was born. I met with Richie, showed him some of my ideas for color, cut and shape, and we never looked back.


    We are so happy that the Bette jacket is finally available in our online store. I hate to say it, but quantities are already limited, so if you are considering adding it to your wardrobe, please don’t wait for too long! The garment is carefully crafted from an amazingly soft cotton/lycra blend, and really is a “must have” for the season. I promise you will reach for it again and again as these warmer spring days continue to turn into cooler spring nights. Fashioned in a bold stripe pattern (black or grey) that never seems to go out of style you can easily wear it with jeans, skinny pants, a favorite skirt or tank dress.


    While shopping be sure to take a peek at our sale page. Lots of lovely things from Fall are now marked down by 30%! Enjoy!



    Nikki Rich Loves COAST in Chicago!

    by  • April 9, 2013 • Fashion, Shopping, Styling


    We are having an amazing time at the COAST Show in Chicago. I posted some images on Twitter last night, but here they are again with a few more to show you just how beautiful and unique this place is. Situated on a river stemming from the Chicago Harbor, the River East Arts Center reminds me of an art gallery…with its high ceilings, exposed brick, and rows upon rows of talented designers. Our booth has been buzzing since the minute we unpacked our first samples and we have been writing orders like crazy! New accounts have come in from Chicago, Japan, Indiana, Missouri, New York and Arizona. We have a few more hours to go to get Nikki Rich to a boutique near you and then we have to pack things up and head back to LA. Thanks so much to the team at Nikki Rich and all of the wonderful people who made this fun ride possible.


    While we have been away, it has been business as usual at headquarters. It makes me so happy to know that orders from our Spring 2013 Collection have been pouring in. So, if you have your eye on something special, please don’t wait. We want to make sure you get what you want while quantities and sizes are still available. And don’t forget that we still have a few pieces left from Fall 2012 that are now on sale for 30% off! Thanks to all of you who are wearing Nikki Rich! We are so thankful for your support!


    See you in LA!

    Things continue to buzz at Nikki Rich. Both Richie and I are excited about all that has been going on lately and all that lies ahead. First of all I want to give a big congratulations to Richie and the rest of the boys in Bon Jovi. If you didn’t already know, their album “What About Now” debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart yesterday. And according to SoundScan, it sold 101,000 copies in this first week! Richie never ceases to amaze me with all that he manages to do in a given day, and I want to make sure he knows how much we all truly appreciate him!


    In Nikki Rich news, we are packing up the Fall 2013 Collection and heading to Dallas tomorrow for market. From March 21-23 we will be set up in the World Trade Center, at the Scott Blair Group Showroom in booth #25214. We look forward to seeing our friends and meeting some new buyers. We will continue to try our best to get Nikki Rich in a boutique closer to you.
