In the world of high-fashion apparel, the name Richard Dayhoff is synonymous with elegant simplicity. Dayhoff’s clothing designs have been sold for more than twenty years in over 300 renowned retail establishments across America, including Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue and Takashimaya. A graduate of the International Academy of Design, and known for his sculptural approach to style and attention to detailing, Dayhoff continues to introduce intriguing, attention-commanding collections.
His talent has led to immense success in creating women’s ready-to-wear garments and men’s sportswear, as well as launching a signature fragrance, DAYHOFF, for men and women. Known as a visionary, this artist of personal presentation constantly innovates and sets new standards, most recently introducing a line of men’s premium performance underwear.
Richard’s quiet confidence and inspired excellence have earned him the AIBI Designer of Tomorrow Award, the New York More Fashion Award, and a nomination for Chicago’s Gold Coast Fashion Award.
In addition, Dayhoff earned the privilege of dressing Oprah Winfrey, as well as appearing on her show twice. He also co-hosted CBS TV’s weekly “Fashion Police” segments, reporting on the fashion scene in general. His press credits are equally impressive: He has appeared on the cover of ‘Women’s Wear Daily’ seven times, and has merited features in ‘Harper’s Bazaar’, ‘W,’ ‘Elle’, ‘Glamour’ and ‘Men’s Style.’
Finally, the addition of a piece of his women’s ready-to-wear clothing to the permanent collection of the Chicago History Museum will serve as formal recognition of how he has succeeded in crystallizing his personal inspiration.
