When Rita Liefhebber styled our Yorkdale is Me photoshoot back in 2010, I found out that this model-turned-stylist was also an amazing designer as well. Talk about multitasking! Well, this week, I attended her S/S 2011 trunk show at Yorkville’s Rac Boutique, and I just could not walk away empty handed. A small, but versatile collection of hand-dyed, hand-knit, hand-stitched tanks, silk tops, maxi dresses, gorgeous scarves, and sexy basics was simply perfect for any contemporary fashion loving city girl. I love that Rita’s designs don’t scream sexy, they whisper it. Rac owners Glenna and Faith, obviously just as excited about Liefhebber’s designs, will also carry her Fall 2011 collection come September.
After much speculating, I picked up a grey and black hand-dyed silk tank top, that I decided was perfect for my top-lacking wardrobe. My very first Rita Liefhebber piece…but definitely not last! Next time you find yourself in Yorkville, make sure to stop by Rac Boutique and peruse Rita’s lovely collection. You won’t regret it!
