Niki Livas Takes Her Place Among Top Designers to Dress Vanna White During 25th Anniversary Season.

I'm an avid Wheel of Fortune watcher. I think Vanna has the greatest job in the world…wearing designer gowns every night of the week, and looking fabulous for millions of viewers. She always looks stunning. And, I'm thrilled to have the Niki by Niki Livas collection included in such a wonderful show, and worn by such a beauty.

If you've ever watched an episode of Wheel of Fortune, you were sure to see the stunning blonde illuminating the wall of letters, bringing words and phrases to life, all while dressed in magnificent evening gowns night after night. What will begin the 25th Anniversary season in July 2008, "Wheel Watchers" will see the famous co-host and letter turner, Vanna White, making her entrances in a new designer collection: Niki by Niki Livas.

The Niki by Niki Livas collection boasts an array of sumptuous eveningwear. From sleek, form fitting silk and satin gowns in bold colors and patterns, to sublime matte jersey knit styles with rhinestone details in short and long lengths, the Niki by Niki Livas collection has an eveningwear look perfect for every event.

"It's always been a goal of mine to dress Vanna," says Livas. "I'm an avid Wheel of Fortune watcher. I think Vanna has the greatest job in the world…wearing designer gowns every night of the week, and looking fabulous for millions of viewers. She always looks stunning. And, I'm thrilled to have the Niki by Niki Livas collection included in such a wonderful show, and worn by such a beauty."

New York based Livas joins the ranks of top designers who've dressed Vanna White over the years, including Halston, Luca Luca, Versace, Christian LaCroix, Georgio Armani and Escada. During the 25 years that Wheel of Fortune has been in syndication, Vanna White has worn over 5,100 different designer outfits, with viewers tuning in every weekday night, many solely to see what she is wearing.

Dressing a recognizable fashion figure like Vanna White is a mark of distinction for which Niki Livas is well suited. Niki's been designing for over 30 years, and knew her career was headed for success when she was awarded the Evening Dress Award in her graduating Fashion Institute of Technology class. Niki was also the recipient of F.I.T.'s prestigious Alumni Star Salute award in 2001, recognizing again, her commitment, success and contributions to the fashion industry.

Born and raised in New York, Niki Livas was first bitten by the fashion bug after she had her first child. Despite coming into the fashion industry after she started her family, Niki quickly identified the sector where she knew she would excel, eveningwear and prom. Graduating from New York's Fashion Institute of Technology with a degree in fashion design, Niki quickly put her degree and extraordinary talent to work at Zum Zum when she joined the design team in 1972. Niki has enjoyed designing eveningwear and prom dresses for young women for more than 30 years. She is now the head designer for Zum Zum, Niki by Niki Livas, Zum Zum Boutique and Niki Livas Red Carpet.
