Rachel Bick wasn’t born to blend in. Born as the first girl in a family of seven siblings, she always walked a little taller and stayed a step ahead. Not that it was easy. The family was poor and life was often a struggle. Mom looked after old people and volunteered at a local church thrift store, and while some kids might have complained about the discarded vintage clothing they had to wear, all the while Rachel watched in fascination. Soon she began to thrive on mixing up outrageous and always original colors, patterns and textures of clothing from various generations. Some things never change.
At Schreiber High School in Port Washington, Long Island, Rachel was labeled “The Non-Conformist.” She had discovered her talent and passion for fashion. Determined to pursue her dream, she held down jobs as a waitress to pay for her own education at the Fashion Institute of Technology. While there, she completed her first collection which was aired on a college television station. Rachel’s journey was just beginning.
Over the next decade, Rachel was invited to produce several fashion shows in New York City at notorious venues such as the Limelight, Tunnel, and Madison Square Garden. She also created numerous exhibitions, including one at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. A slew of new opportunities began pouring in such as designing costumes for MTV’s Celebrity Death Match, Jose Cuervo Margarita Mix television commercial, and a Nintendo television commercial. Rachel also began working with individual celebrity clients, television shows such as The Today Show, and television stations such as the History Channel. She has also done visual merchandising, creating window displays for such celebrated names as Christian Dior, Saks Fifth Avenue, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, and many more.
Rachel is currently making two dimension art, while simultaneously creating for individual clients, designing her ever-evolving fashion lines, and teaching fashion design and innovation to children. Never one to sit still, she continues to be inspired and to captivate us all with her amazing gift. But, deep down, she’s still just a girl who loves to play with clothes!
