Happy Easter!

Dear friends and costumers,

As autumn is changing colours in nature so is our shop changing. The new winter collection has come in

and can be viewed over Easter at these times:

Good Friday 12 – 4

Saturday 10 – 5

Sunday 12 – 3

Easter Monday 11 – 4

We wish you all  Happy Easter!

Since we are already thinking of the following season, we are using the new travel freedoms to go overseas to have a parts of our new summer collection produced. That means that the shop is close from 25th of April to the 12th of May with this exceptions:

22/4 -10 – 5

23/4 – 10 – 5

24/4 – 12 – 4

24/4 – 12 – 3

29/ 4 – 10 – 5

30/4 – 10 – 5

1/5 – 12 – 3

It seems that the forced eventless time has come to an end and the demand for special outfits is rising sharply. If you want to enjoy your shopping at RIKE DESIGN even more, please consider booking an appointment with Uli, just to make sure to make the most of her extensive knowledge and experience and, of course, that the bubbly is cold! Please book by sending a text to 0418 374 742 or ring the shop during business our on 0 5470 6014.


We are hiring!

We need somebody.
Not just anybody.

RIKE-DESIGN is now looking for a young (at heart) person to be part of the sales team at our shop in 54 Mostyn St, Castlemaine.
We are a upmarket ladies fashion boutique, established well over 10 years ago and our business is still growing. Since Ulrike as the leading designer is more and more tied up in special projects we need an energetic person to support her and steer the boat if she is busy otherwise.
So if you are a sharp tool (see above), like to be surrounded be beautiful fashion, not afraid of responsibility, if you don’t think that style is something to be bought at the hardware store and present yourself well, please contact us.
Experience helps but is not essential, an open mind and the willingness to learn is.

Send email, drop in or ring during business hours: 5470 6014
