THE QUEEN OF LIVING LAVISHLYHIP - RIKA WOYAN

Rika has always loved jewelry and accessories - it’s actually more of a passionate obsession. She cheerfully- and proudly -recalls her special stash of gems, jewelry, metals, and stones kept at home. “20 drawers filled,” she confesses. But where did the love for this life of jewels grow from? Her family roots of course.

After years spent working in a corporate setting, Rika decided she wanted to take a little time off to live and enjoy life with her ill mother. Her mother was a well-dressed businesswoman of Japanese descent who had a very elegant and stylish gait. After she had passed, Rika felt lost, as if she was at a fork in the road. Not wanting to dive directly back into a Fortune 500 company, she strategized what next move to make. She thought of her uncle, an Art Deco aficionado, who was always giving her specialty pieces of jewelry, which complimented her cultured appreciation for fashion and jewelry.

Rika attended her first accessory buying show in NYC in 2010. A showroom full of precious metals, polished gems, sparkling jewels lit up her life right before her eyes. It was an exclusive, behind-the-scenes meet and greet with designers where she was able to hear their stories and inspirations.

LavishlyHip extends on-trend and classic designers to everyone, not just those located in urban, metropolitan cities. The mission is to make popular fashionable pieces available to an audience that wouldn’t normally get to see the line or buy the delicious pieces.  

Customer happiness is the #1 priority at LavishlyHip. Rika wants to make sure your buying experience is smooth and enjoyable, and as a customer you know you can always reach out to her and her team with any questions, concerns and suggestions.
