My Favorite Lines Series: Robbi & Nikki

I have always liked designer Robert Rodriguez’s feminine detailed pieces.  But, like everyone else, I’m on a budget and cannot afford everything that I would like.  Robert recognized this niche and developed Robbi & Nikki.

When Robert was young, his mother game him a book about Christian Dior, which sparked his interest in fashion.  Robert opted to attend prestigious FIT and was awarded during his studies with the Critics Award for Best Designer of the Year.  This boost gave him recognition in the industry, and he was hired by the House of Dior.  What a dream come true!

After developing his eponymous line, he created Black Label and Robbi & Nikki.  Robert joined fashion icons when he was inducted into the CFDA in 2010.

Robert’s creations always seem to catch my eye due to the delicate detailing.  Robbi & Nikki stays true to this detailing, but takes a more youthful approach.  You will find lots of layers, silk, beading and ruffles adorning tops and dresses.  It is impossible not to feel fabulous when you are wearing a Robert Rodriguez design.
