Yorktown Shopping Center, Lombard, IL (PRWEB) October 03, 2013
Aiming to provide an exciting, unique opportunity for local shoppers, Von Maur will feature guest appearances by Nikki Lund and Richie Sambora – co-designers of contemporary fashion brand Nikki Rich – at its Yorktown Center store this Saturday, October 12.
A California native, Los Angeles-based fashion designer Nikki Lund has been widely recognized for her sophisticated, fashion-forward designs. With a background in and passion for music, Nikki spent years honing her songwriting skills and performing with the band Secret Mind before going solo.
Simultaneously, Nikki joined the design team at Jill Stuart in an effort to sustain her interest in fashion. In 2005, she launched the loungewear line Eccentric Symphony.
Interest in the line, and her band, grew exponentially. During this process Nikki also made her own stage clothes, attracting a growing audience for her music and her sense of style – and catching the attention of legendary musician Richie Sambora, which resulted in the formation of Nikki Rich. As co-designer, Richie is heavily involved in every aspect of Nikki Rich, working closely with Nikki to develop each collection.
Guests of the store will receive a signed photograph and can have their photograph taken with Nikki and Richie.
