As the night approached it's end, the Tent and Lincoln Center was all buzzing on the anticipated solo debut of Richie Rich. From the fashionably famed duo Heatherette, Richie Rich did not disappoint the fashionistas who were in attendance. As with any other show you can believe it was a party for sure. With a gracious opening featuring professional ballet dancers and the very talented violinist, Kristine Elezaj, the show was expected, yet unexpected.
The collection boasted bright neon hues with accents that made every fashionista's eye twinkle with the thoughts of their cuteness of the early 80s. From ruffles to bows and rouching, not only did the clothes look fun but actually wearable. There were Seersucker dresses, hot shorts with ruffle detail on the posterior, Swarovski encrusted detailing, and cascading ruffled dresses.
The audience was very pleased and showed their excitement through thunderous applauding and screaming cheers.
After the finale walk while every one expected Richie Rich to immediately take a bow, how unpredictable it was to see under the whimsical pop of silver confetti, the ever so fun Ellen Degeneres. Wearing an all white number and a cute little head piece tilted to the side, she did her own version of a fashion strut which brought the entire Studio to their feet.
It was truly a fun WOW moment and an event well waited for.
Hurray and Congratulations to you Richie!
