Today, as part of our Behind the Seams with A.K. Rikk's series, we would like to introduce you to Shopper's Assistant, Alexis Delk! Alexis helps the personal stylists with operation needs and is also aiding in the visuals department. She’s been told she has a strong resemblance with actress Gabrielle Union so it’s only wise that the actress would play Alexis in the movie about her life. Read up on our latest addition to the A.K. Rikk’s family and find out who else Alexis loves (heads up, it’s Beyoncé).
What initially drew you to A.K. Rikk's?
What initially drew me in was the luxurious ambience. From the first moment I walked into this illustrious establishment I was in awe of its beauty. The experience was truly captivating.
What is your favorite part of working at A.K. Rikk's so far?
My favorite part has been meeting so many wonderful people. Everyone has gone above and beyond to make sure I'm comfortable and never hesitate to lend a helping hand. Aside from that, I am also a huge fan of the events.
What have you learned this week at work?
This week, I learned how to send alteration notifications. So, if you get a text that your pieces are ready, nine times out of ten, it's me!
What is your favorite brand at A.K. Rikk’s?
It has to be Zimmermann. All of their pieces are exquisite and unique.
What is the first thing you notice about a person?
The first thing I notice about a person is their body language.
If you could spend an hour in the company of any famous person, living or deceased, who would it be? Why?
It would have to be Beyonce (that is the only right answer). I would have a front row seat to a live concert! I could listen to that woman sing 24/7.
What color won’t you wear no matter how great the outfit?
PURPLE and I mean grape purple. No, ma'am. Not on me.
What do you still have from childhood?
I still have a pair of baby shoes. They are patent leather Mary Jane flats. I plan on passing them down to my future daughter.
Which types of clothes do you collect?
Basics. You can never go wrong with the basics. I am a huge fan of having a capsule wardrobe. It's always fun to mix and match, making an entirely different look with the same pieces of clothing.
Do you have any pets?
Yes! I have two wonderful fur babies, Amelia (bunny) and Roman (dog). I love them so much!
Which health change do you know you should make but you just can’t?
No matter how hard I try, the moment I get a pint of Talenti's southern butter pecan gelato, I am going to eat the whole pint in ONE setting.
What do you have a hard time saying no to?
I have a hard time saying no to buying a new outfit for a new occasion. Instagram will never see me wearing the same outfit.
What is the most embarrassing piece of clothing you own?
I don't want to be THAT person but I don't believe I have an embarrassing piece of clothing.
Any books you are reading right now?
Yes, I am currently reading Michelle Obama's, Becoming. I want to finish this before her new book releases.
What’s the last photo on your phone?
A photo from my engagement photoshoot, back in 2020!
This concludes this Behind the Seams interview. The next time you stop into the store you might see Alexis on the floor being of service to our personal shoppers or backing up the visual department. Please say hello and help us as we welcome her to the team. You can’t miss her warm personality.
