CICI RichardsWardrobe Stylist & Fashion Designer Style
Cici Richards was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma. From the time she was a little girl she was intrigued by fashion from past eras and its origination. As a teenager, she remembers raiding her grandmother’s closets for vintage clothing. Early on she noticed that her appreciation for fun, contemporary fashion and her love for vintage clothing was hard to find so she began to combine them all together on her own. Although she had a true love for creating and designing clothes, after high school, she was not aware of how to turn her passion into a career, so she enrolled in Historical Black College University (HBCU), Fisk University to gain her Bachelor’s of Art in English. During undergraduate school, her passion only grew stronger so after graduating, she moved to Los Angeles California and enrolled in American InterContinental University. There she added the needed education to her natural talent. She credits a life changing experience to a study abroad program in Paris, France. There she was able to have hands on experience in one of the most celebrated fashion capitals, gaining an Associate’s Degree in Fashion Design. Since then, Cici has worked on her clothing line, CICI, which she has incorporated all the things she loves, vintage, frill, and modern simplicity.
