Heatherette's Richie Rich Is Back!

Hello, lover!

Remember Richie Rich, the designer who used to create the now-defunct Heatherette line with Traver Rains? Yes, the one who loves glitter, roller skates everywhere, and is generally loud and delightful? Well he's back. We just got an invitation to see his Fashion Week show on Wednesday, February 18, at the Waldorf Astoria. "Blondes have more fun!" it boasts above the dress code, which — and this is the best part — reads "Dress/Attire: Sparkling." We're so excited we might just break out the body glitter now (yes, we carry that around). Last Fashion Week, Richie was supposed to stage a show for his Hot Topic collection. Neither show nor collection ever materialized, even after Aubrey O'Day told us she starred in the ad campaign and would walk in the show. Needless to say, we felt horribly teased. But just receiving a JPEG of the invitation has already partly quenched our thirst for the glitter and unicorns of Heatherette's heyday. May their reign shine on like a thousand disco balls.
