From the beginning, Rizik Brothers catered to the well-to-do women with social clout and active busy social calendars - and provided clothes that enhanced the busy lifestyles representative of the period.
We're thrilled to announce a special content feature that we will look back over the store's impressive 112 years. The series will highlight not only the fashion trends throughout this period (especially as they relate to Washington, DC) but also the social, political, and cultural undercurrents that shaped those trends since the store opened in 1908.
Arthur Cotton Moore is the architect responsible for designing Rizik's iconic storefront. The boutique, located at the corner of Connecticut and L Streets in Washington DC, is an embodiment of Moore's embrace of Modernism coupled with Baroque sensibilities.
