Headquartered in Beverly Hills with a cult fan following around the world, Rickety Rack emerged online in 2010 as a carrier of high-definition fashion with an emphasis on exclusivity and design. Newly featured in Vogue, ELLE, Harper's Bazaar and Glamour, Rickety Rack's designs are now world-renowned and in high demand. CEO and Founder Paula Silinger spoke recently about her company's rapid success on The Inside Noise Show. Her celebrity clients include Jessica Alba, Hayden Panettiere, Camilla Belle, Sports Illustrated supermodel Melissa Haro, and reality TV stars Tia and Tamera Mowry who have become loyal buyers from season to season. The company proudly offers ethically-sourced apparel from elite local and international labels with a focus on sustainable fabrics, expert tailoring and compelling design. Every product is drenched in detail, carefully selected on account of RR's high standards, and offered in very limited quantities fresh from the designer's studio. For this reason, Rickety Rack has become a favorite among celebrities, fashion stylists, and press.

- I'm on a budget - why is it hard to find dresses under $50 here?
Rickety Rack does not support slave labor which is how large companies like H&M, Forever 21 and Topshop get prices down. We work with ethically-driven labels and never sell clothing made in Cambodia, Bangladesh, Indonesia or Vietnam. Our products come from the USA, United Kingdom, or fair-labor manufacturers in China where safety inspections meet our strict standards.

Meet Our FounderPaula Silinger founded Rickety Rack in 2010 after earning a master's degree in Gender Studies with a primary mission to dress women in compelling and transformative fashion. Her catch line - "conscious power dressing" - became the essential heartbeat of Rickety Rack: A place where women could go to find statement pieces which communicated to the world everything they wanted to say through a visual medium. It was the invasion of leisure dressing and a notable "sweatpant culture" which drove Paula to encourage women to honor their bodies through next-level dressing. She recently said in an interview:
"Self-respect comes in many forms, and one of the most noticeable is in the amount of energy we use in dressing ourselves. Regardless of age, lifestyle, job or socioeconomic status, women can formulate an identity and real self-esteem through the fashion they wear. This opportunity should never be wasted."
Working as a stylist in Beverly Hills, Paula's emphasis on bold design caught the attention of Vogue, ELLE, Harper's Bazaar and Glamour magazine. In 2012, Rickety Rack dresses began gracing the pages of endless fashion publications around the world. GoDaddy gave Paula her own commercial in 2013 recognizing her as a leading entrepreneur and small-business owner, and Urban Coco Magazine interviewed her in their "Designer Spotlight" column. Most recently, The Inside Noise Show aired a 45-minute interview highlighting the complete story behind Rickety Rack.
