HOW IT ALL STARTED
In 1908, Washington, D.C. was transitioning from the small, capital city it was in the post-Civil War era into a more sophisticated, international metropolis. It was a year of major American “firsts,” including Ford Motor Company’s Model T and founding the Federal Bureau of Investigation – the FBI. Lyndon Johnson, Richard Wright, Bette Davis and James Stewart were all born. The Wright brothers continued to make progress in aviation, with Wilbur Wright flying in France. And, to serve the nation’s capital with a women’s clothing store that reflected the city’s new lifestyles and tastes, Rizik Brothers, Inc. opened its doors in the downtown F Street corridor. Specializing in couture collections, the finest French and Italian designs and attentive, personal service, the boutique quickly became a fashion mainstay for women of style in the nation’s capital.
WASHINGTON D.C.’S UNPARALLELED HUB OF LEADING-EDGE WOMEN'S COUTURE
Across more than a century and many revolutionary designer collections -- and several physical moves to arrive at its present location at the intersection of Connecticut Avenue and L Street, just blocks from the White House -- Rizik’s remains Washington’s preferred women’s clothing store. Expanding its offerings of designer collections, Rizik’s luxury fashion store now includes a stunning selection of accessories, contemporary lines for work and weekend, designer business attire, cocktail and eveningwear, and a renowned bridal boutique. There is no other upscale women’s clothing store in Washington with a reputation or inventory the equal of Rizik’s.
