Behind the Seams with A.K. Rikk's: Meet Ethan Krieger

Today as part of our Behind the Seams with A.K. Rikk's series, we would like to introduce you to our Videographer, Ethan Krieger. Ethan is responsible for planning, filming and editing videos including everyone’s favorite styling videos that showcase the latest luxury and exactly how our expert personal shoppers spin it through their individual fashion lens. Ethan will be the man behind the camera at our many events, getting behind the scenes content for event recaps (showing you what you want to be a part of in the future and giving you all the FOMO if you weren’t there). The next time his camera swings your way, smile and be part of the fun.
