J. Mendel Bridal Trunk Show
J. Mendel, a fifth-generation French atelier, has evolved into a global luxury fashion house under the auspices of creative director Gilles Mendel. Known for combining the highest quality materials and impeccable craftsmanship with a modern, award-winning design sensibility, Gilles Mendel’s signature luxe-femininity and effortless elegance has made the house of J. Mendel a red-carpet favorite among international royalty and Hollywood stars alike.
Responding to client requests for couture wedding dresses, in 2007 J. Mendel launched a complete bridal collection that showcases the brand’s romantic femininity and artistry with fabric.
“When designing the J. Mendel bridal collection, I find the inspiration flows freely. Sometimes I will reinterpret a specific gown from my runway collection as a bridal gown; other times they evolve completely of their own accord. Ultimately, I see every J. Mendel bridal gown as a unique creation. As soon as it’s selected by a bride, it takes on a life all of its own.” –Gilles Mendel
During our trunk show, enjoy a 10% incentive as our wedding gift to you and informal modeling on Saturday, February 13th.
Lourdes Chavez Spring/Summer 2016 Collection Trunk Show
For Spring 2016, Lourdes Chavez created an extraordinary collection that emanates romance and playfulness, filled with exquisite luxury European fabrics, shapely feminine silhouettes and whimsical details. The collection goes from day to night with versatile sportswear separates and dresses, romantic cocktail wear and enchanting gowns. The sweeping palette includes bold yellows and greens, classic black and white and soft tones like rose and melon. As always, Chavez’s materials are exceptional—floral garden brocades and jacquards, polished cottons, silks, French and Italian laces, embroidered tulles, tropical wools, feather-weight leathers and more.
During our trunk show, meet Lourdes Chavez representative Bonnie Beard and enjoy a couture shopping experience with customized sizing and style modifications, as well as informal modeling.
Lourdes Chavez opened her Los Angeles atelier in 1997 and creates two collections each year. Rizik’s is her exclusive distributor in the Washington, D.C. metro area.

Our workshop can alter your furs for a better fit and even change heavier furs into lighter, more contemporary looks. In addition, one garment can be transformed into several new pieces, such as vests, boleros and hats or other accessories, as well as fur trim for your fine capes, coats or jackets.
