Over the years, she'd knit the occasional sweater for her son, Mitch, but it was only a matter of time before her true passion took hold, when in 1982, Vicki started selling yarns and teaching knitting, as well as, designing and selling her own original creations in the boutique. What followed would change her life forever, and steer her in a whole new direction. One day, someone suggested that she try to sell wholesale to national market. She did and it was an instant sensation! Her first two orders were from Neiman Marcus and Bonwit Teller. Subsequent orders from smaller shops around the country were quick to follow. She even received international orders from as far away as South America & Japan. This new venture would take her in a direction that she'd never even conceived.

In 1983, Vicki opened her own showroom, on the famed, Fashion Avenue in New York City. Her signature collection, of hand-beaded Antique French Lace trimmed Angora knit evening Sweaters, was easily recognizable and ultimately, caught the attention of buyers in boutiques and specialty stores from Rodeo Drive to Worth Ave.

By 1987, her designs were being sold in Saks Fifth Avenue's illustrious Holiday Catalogue and displayed in their renowned Holiday Season windows on the Avenue. Vicki had reached a substantial milestone.
