Designer Dossier: Alexis Bittar Edit Delete Unpublish Submitted by admin on Thu, 2015-01-29 09:11 Q: When did you first realize you had a fascination with antique jewelry? I realized that I had a love for antique jewelry when I was probably, I want to say, 8 or 9 years old. There was an antique jeweler in Maine, her name was Mrs. Ivers, she had cotton blue candy hair, and she was an old-school Mainer. She was an antique collector/dealer and she gave me my first piece of jewelry, which was a wedding band, weirdly enough.

I also like Halston [the original brand]. [The clothes are] modern, chic, effortless. Q: What was your thought process when designing the spring/summer collection? A: The whole collection, I came up with it in three weeks. I had to hit the ground running. The idea with the collection is to mix and match. You shouldn’t wear head-to-toe one designer. I like to design pieces that could make sense with other pieces.Read more about Designer Dossier
