International Women's Day: RIXO

Q&A with Henrietta Rix & Orlagh McCloskey.

Tell us about your role and your business...

RIXO is a vintage-inspired contemporary womenswear brand, known best for our signature hand-painted prints and flattering shapes and dress silhouettes.

Orlagh: I’m Co-Founder and also Creative Director.

Henrietta: I’m Co-Founder and CEO.

What do you love most about being positioned in Marylebone Village?

Henrietta: We love the loyal community that comes and shops with us in Marylebone Village. It’s a gorgeous part of London and we’re honoured to have a RIXO presence on the street. We recently reopened our store following a complete refresh.

Which women have inspired you most throughout your life?

Henrietta: I’m lucky to have been so inspired by my mum, she really started my love for all things vintage – I remember her taking me with her to vintage fairs, flea markets and auction houses from a young age. Mine and Orlagh’s shared love of vintage bonded our friendship at university where we met.
