Open studio 28.10.11

what a lovely evening in the studio, I dont know if its the Halloween vibe, or the booze and music, but the studio was rammed Friday night, the whole building was open for viewing , we got a good lot of traffic, it also might have been the very colorful cup cakes I made, but cant wait to have more parties in the studio, work and pleasure-always works best:)

get into the beat

I have done and dusted with the SS 12 collection, and now the is time for reflections on what I made, and what I was inspired by, I guess its all about the movement, the beat and the dynamics of a certain culture, I am still sticking with the African vibe- and this collection is inspired by fela kutti and his beautiful wifes, the is something so inspiring about the way they moved, sang and applied there make up...something a little mystical, but still extremely groovy:)))

Not Just Riyka

The last months have been so exciting for our little label.
AW has been in the shops for almost 2 months and we are getting ready for SS 12 production, and of course not to forget the AW 13 which is cooking up a storm in the times the stress is high, but sometimes we get little mentions in press here and there, and it puts a smile on are face:))
this gives us a little bit more energy and fuel to keep working and getting RIYKA out there...recent press we got from Not just a label and Beyond the valley
RIYKA AW 11-12 is stocked with both shops
