Moses was born in Brazil, which is where she said the name "Rio Ritz" stems from. Moses studied at the Wade College of Fashion & Design at the Dallas InfoMart, and has helped direct fashion shows in town for large-scale retail stores like Stanley Korshak and Neiman Marcus.
She has always had a knack for fashion "where I come from in Brazil, there is culture, versatility, and individuality in style. [These] are things that inspire me." The overall vibe of the boutique is laid back, and features items that range from $25 to $75 a piece. "I want girls to come enjoy a glass of wine, chat, and feel like they're coming to their best girlfriend's house to find an outfit," Moses explains "there will always be wine here."
