Show Notes

Patti + Ricky is the Adaptive Fashion Marketplace for adults and kids with disabilities, chronic conditions, patients, seniors, and caregivers.

Shopping does not typically include or embrace differences and individuals with disabilities. Patti + Ricky changes this with an inclusive shopping experience for all.


Patti Connell was a mother, sister, aunt, daughter, friend, and entrepreneur. She was strong, independent, and very much ahead of her time. Ricky Warga-Arias was a son, cousin, friend, philanthropist, and teacher. He had a contagious smile, keen intellect, and was a true lover of the arts. They were both the depiction of cool. Together, Patti and Ricky formed the inclusive lens through which Alex Herold (CEO and Founder of Patti + Ricky) sees the world. Alex wanted to create an online department store where every product is curated with Patti and Ricky's approval in mind. Our mission is to continue to spread the love, understanding, and acceptance that Patti + Ricky passed on throughout their lifetimes. 


We hope Patti + Ricky continues to positively impact lives every day. Each year we donate 10% of our profits to non-profit organizations that support inclusion and provide access for individuals with disabilities and chronic conditions.


Thank you for shopping with Patti + Ricky!

 That's why the BC Schizophrenia Society has launched a brand new podcast, called Look Again, Mental Illness Re-examined. Host Faydra Aldridge talks to doctors, families, and people with lived experience about how to recognize mental illness, and the specific treatments that can help. Check it out. They'll really challenge you to“look again” at what you think you know about mental illness.
