Heatherette is a fashion company and design house run by Traver Rains and former Club Kid Richie Rich, located in New York City. Heatherette was founded in 1999 when they began collaborating on t-shirts and leather goods. They were discovered when Richie Rich wore one of their leather tops to a party and a buyer at the downtown Patricia Field store noticed and ordered 20 of them.[1]
