WHO IS ANN MARIE aka/ ANNIE RIGSBY
Host Annie Rigsby, is a Fashion Industry Veteran, with more than 30 years experience within the career she has called home since becoming a buyer at only 15 years old. Rigsby was working part time at a surf store in Denver, Colorado, while in High School, and without a drivers license. Her parents rotated taking her to "work" 3 evenings after school. Only months into her job, she was thrust into heading to Vegas, for the MAGIC Convention, when the store manager tore his hamstring. Rigsby wrote orders to companies including, buying Fossil Watches, Rusty corduroy pants, FILA T-Shirts and more, during her first time at MAGIC and only her third time on an airplane. Multiple clothing companies became enamored with the beautiful young buyer during the convention. Yet, is was her innate ability to predict trends without a proper college degree at the time, and her natural sense of style, that catapulted her into becoming a Sales Rep for two brands she met in Vegas- RUSTY SURF and SIMMS Snowboards, at only 19 years old. While attending college for her Degree in Apparel Design & Merchandising and a Minor in Spanish, Rigsby nailed both her growing love of the fashion industry on campus and throughout her five-state repping territory. Becoming a Buyer at only 15 years old, modeling by the time she was only 16 and working her 5-state territory as a young 19 year old, while finishing college, rounded out her late teen years and early twenties, catching the eye once again of a man that became her husband when Rigsby was only 22. Together the two power couple created a clothing empire of nearly a dozen stores, manufacturing, wholesaling, liquidating and selling to Costco Worldwide, SAMS Club and E-Mart overseas. For the next 20 years, Rigsby happily gave birth to three children and traveled the world for her clothing empire. As they say, "...the rest is history!" but for Rigsby, her inner conscious and natural generosity, paved the way for Rigsby to want to give back to the industry that gave so much to her. She wanted to provide a safe space for todays fashion industry lovers to experience the world she never wants to leave. Falling in love with Home & Garden Network, HGTV during the Covid-19 Pandemic, Rigsby saw her future in the industry, and created The Fashion Network, FNTV. After sixteen months of creating custom tv software, allowing all tv shows to air commercials from advertisers, selling capabilities, shopping options and more, Rigsby launched FNTV with her own TV Show, Fashionology TODAY! In only a month, TV Show pitches were being sent to FNTV, while NEW TV shows were also being handpicked by Rigsby and her staff. As Season 2, of Fashionology TODAY is coming to an end and Season 3 weekly episodes are fully booked, Rigsby spends most of her time creating FNTV Originals, TV Shows fully created, produced and aired by The Fashion Network, FNTV. As HGTV remains the bonafide home and garden tv headquarters, FNTV has established itself as the TV Headquarters for all things fashion.
