Fashion Week Takes Over New York!

Posted by Judith Ripka 1346877722.653

I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend.

As summer ends, fall begins, and for those of you who follow all of the latest fashion trends, you know that we are in the midst of the biggest fashion moment of the year – New York Fall Fashion Week.  The week kicks off on September 6 with Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out, and I am proud to say that my two stores on Madison Avenue, as well as my stores in Dallas and Las Vegas are participating in the festivities.  The night is all about fun and fashion, so I have decided to help New York City’s fashionistas get ready for the big night by pampering them with pre-party facials and mini-massages courtesy of the Donna Scott salon on Park Avenue.  So, if you happen to be in New York City on September 6, please stop by Flagship store, as it would be my pleasure to pamper you, too!

Speaking of stopping by my Flagship store, last fall, Lisa Robertson stopped by my store and fell in love with my Laurel necklace in 18K gold.  She even posted a photograph of herself on Facebook modeling the necklace, in which she shared with customers how she stopped by my boutique and had to have that piece.  The customer response was overwhelmingly positive, and many of you have been asking if I could create this Laurel Necklace for QVC.  So, I am pleased to announce that the necklace is finally here (J273642).  Exclusively for QVC, I will be offering my sterling silver Laurel necklace in two sizes, an 18” and a 20”.  Each size will feature 7 large open stations, making it a very light and easy necklace to wear and enjoy every day.  If you decide to order it, please make sure to take a picture of yourself wearing it, and post it on Facebook, similar to Lisa.  I was thinking it would be fun to have a “Picture Album” on Facebook called “Lisa’s Laurel Necklace” in which we compile as many customer photos as possible of women wearing this beautiful piece.  What do you think?

When women ask me what to wear to compliment the Laurel necklace, my answer is always, “Anything in your jewelry box.”  The Laurel necklace coordinates with every piece in your jewelry wardrobe.  However, if you would like something new and fabulous to wear with it, try my new sterling silver “swirl” ring and earrings, J264105 and J264585.  The soft curves on these pieces are very feminine and compliment the round oval shape on the Laurel necklace.  And, the almost swirl-like look with Diamonique accents gives the illusion of movement making this collection one of my most eye catching.  What I love most is that, like the Laurel necklace, this sterling ring and earring set are brilliant basics.  With these pieces you can let the color in your wardrobe pop and your jewelry sparkle with dazzling Diamonique.


So, please tune in to my upcoming shows this Sunday, September 9th from 4 - 6pm with Lisa Robertson, where we will get to see her model the Laurel necklace once again, and again from 8 - 9pm.  And, for those of you who are Grandparents out there, like Ron and me, I want wish all of you an early Happy Grandparents Day, as Sunday, September 9 is the big day.  I was quite touched when my own grandchildren reminded me of this special day earlier this week.  Ron and I received the most wonderful card in the mail, which was a picture of all of them on the cover, and then inside, each of them had written a small note to us.  It is during moments like these that I feel like I should add picture frames to my repertoire of designs, because I am definitely framing this very special card.  How are you celebrating Grandparents Day?  Please write in on my Facebook page and let me know, as I love hearing your stories.

Until then,


Thank you again for all of your love and support.


With much appreciation,

Dear Judith, Happy Grandparents Day to you and your Husband! Your Grandchildren sound so sweet and thoughtful, definitely a reflection of kindness they learned from you! I am very excited for your shows, and I think a picture frame would be awesome! Have a wonderful Fall Season.

Hi Judith!

I am in love with your new Laurel necklace!! Thank you for showing us a picture of your couture Laurel necklace! In a word....STUNNING! I have the perfect pair of earrings to go with it, J-264205 your teardrop earrings!!

Your jewelry is so desirable. I can only imagine bringing picture frames that you have designed for us. I don't have grandchildren yet, but I have four sons that are still growing! Please bring us some picture frames! I will buy four or more depending on how many different styles you do!

Dear Judith

I love your fabulous pieces and I have many.

I have a question. Do you make necklace extenders available for your various chains? I have had neck surgery and need extra length to be able to wear the 18" chains I already have. It would be wonderful to have a 2" extender that would compliment the design of the chains and the size of the clasps.

Thank you for designing such lovely jewelry for all of us.

Hi Judith!

I have another huge favor to ask you. Please bring your black rhodium Gothic pieces to QVC! Oh! I just love the style of these..... the pieces are all of great value on your website except the cuff. It's a little over my budget. I was thinking maybe you could bring this collection to QVC and give us the option of color with it. I would like to see RED, WHITE, and AMETHYST stones in this for some options....maybe a TSV!!

I love your black rhodium pieces!! They look so sophiticated and s^xy!!! I need some s^xy Ripka in my Collection!!

Please, Please, Please bring the Gothic to QVC!!!!

Thank you so much!!!

Christine.......p.s. I just ordered your TSV watch in silvertone for October. I can't wait till it arrives. It is gettin rave reviews on the forum!!!!
