I have been living in NYC since my college days and have come to unconditionally love this city. Hurricane Sandy, 9-11, black outs -have seen it all. But somehow the magic and energy of this city always drives me back whenever I leave….
Am in the process of developing my own Lifestyle Brand of accessories to feature hats and handbags for the urban fashionista. My collection will feature fabrics from around the globe and trims/hardware that are edgy and exciting. My collection will reflect my travel, day-to-day life living in NYC and my love of art and culture.
Being a ghost designer and design consultant allows me a glance and sometimes the ability to be part of a very exciting world!! I interface with celebrities, designers, artists and musicians. Many of them I now am lucky enough to consider friends. I am inspired by there world but also by the diversity in my world as a working mom with a warm community of loving and supportive “ mommy” friends and family.
“Fashion fades, but style is eternal- YSL”
AS my collection begins to take shape you will see my new designs, which will eventually end up at stores like Saks, Nordstrom’s, Bloomingdales as well as exclusive boutiques. Will keep you posted as I search out the right CFO for my new venture or large accessory company to partner up with – getting close!! Stay tuned!!.
A few places and experiences that make me smile and help to inspire my collections! Enjoy! XO Alixx
