The Story of Alice + Olivia
The story behind the brand Alice + Olivia begins when Stacey couldn’t find the style of trousers she was looking for when she was a college student. Thus, she begins to design her pair of pants on her own. Her passion to design a pair of sexy trousers has then led her to launch a 20 item collection in 2002 at the Russian tea Room and soon, her pants gained instant popularity due to the retro design, tight on top, belted at the leg with the slim cut at the hip, giving the illusion of elongated legs and lean silhouette.
More orders of the collection start to pour in by big brand labels such as Barneys and Theory by Andrew Rosen, who later helped to invest in her business. Alice + Olivia, named after two mothers, her own and her college mate soon take off, and the global brand is now sold in over 50 countries, and has since expanded into sweaters, dresses and skirts.
The brand also has 13 US freestanding boutiques, all of which designed by Stacey herself and is located in cities such as New York, California, Chicago and Connecticut. The brand also recently debuted 7 international free-standing stores located in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore with more stores coming to cities such as in Tokyo, Japan, Dubai, and Kuwait.
Now, Stacey Bendet, a full-time mother of two, co-founder and creative director behind the fashion label is now making arrangements to collaborate with MAC to produce a makeup line, set to launch next month and will feature eye pigments, lip gloss, and nail polish in "fun colors" like Partylicious (a shimmery deep turquoise) and I Want Candy (a violent yellow).
