Hi everyone! My name is Rykki and I'm 25 years old. I'm a licensed cosmetologist and currently going to school for my BS in fashion. I absolutely love anything and everything that has to do with the fashion industry! I also love makeup, nail polish, and changing my hair color. :)~ I like doing my own thing and not following the crowd. I do however take things from current trends and incorporate them in my own fashion. Some of my favorite designers include, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Vera Wang, Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, Betsey Johnson, and I recently discovered Rachel Roy. I like to be involved in as many things as possible or I get bored. One of my hobbies is making jewelry. I also like interior design. I believe no one can have too many pairs of shoes! I hope you got some info about me and I look forward to Trend Hunting!

What inspires or excites you?
For school we had a career week in November. There were 3-4 seminars a day with speakers in the fashion industry. Each one was in a different area. They all went over what they did, how much you can earn, and how much fun it is. I took notes and I will refer back to them frequently to remind myself of what an awesome career I will have.
