“In signature Nuorikko style, Thomas created eight new mix-and-match options with the absence of bright colors and the presence of style and versatility. Bodysuits can pair with pants or skirts, skirts are reinvented as capes and dresses and jumpsuits can transform with simple adjustments. Each piece also includes a defined waist so women of any size and shape can wear them. In short, women will have the ability to stock their closets with essential pieces that can transition for day to night or work to the street.”

  • “The Bridal Industry is broken. Just ask Kaitlyn Thomas, founder and CEO of Nuorikko, farm girl turned fashion designer, and all around bad ass. We knew Kaitlyn from our times in product development pre-Chiix & Co., and recently, she’s continued to challenge mundane fashion by launching her own custom bridal line, Nuorikko. If you’ve ever shopped or help shop for a wedding dress, you’re no stranger to the long lead times, skyrocketing prices for customizations, uninspired silhouettes and colors, and a hastle in general having to book appointments just to TRY on a dress. Nuorikko aims to change all of that. Be individual, stand out, and be effortlessly you; that’s what fuels Nuorikko’s mission.”
