I must confess - it was so many People lined up down the street waiting to view the Alice & Olivia by Stacey Bendet FW’19 Presentation Show at theNeo Gothic Angel Orensanz Foundation on February 11th, 2019 at New York Fashion Week.

Stacey Bendet is well known for her vibrant colors and prints, and her creative story telling through her fashion shows.

 This season with a lot of vivid butterflies, prints and sparkles. 

The theme for the Alice & Olivia FW2019 presentation was “Fantasia” and that’s exactly how it felt with bright and wonderful places through the gorgeous and funky variety of clothing and sets, both consumed with sparkling leaves, butterflies, flowers and animal prints.

Stacey’s designs are meant for all women of all ages and can be purchased in free standing boutiques in the US, Middle East and Asia and in many of the most popular department stores worldwide, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Net-a-Porter, Lane Crawford, Isetan, Hankyu, Harvey Nichols, Harrods, and Galeries Lafayette.

Makeup artist Erin Parson and manicurist Gina Edwards played around with reds and burgundies for the lips and nails at Alice + Olivia Fall - Winter 2019 collection.

“Stacey’s attention to detail is impeccable. It was a great opportunity to create these custom acrylic butterflies that look as if they softly landed on the models’ fingers,” said Gina Edwards -KISS’ lead manicurist.

Maybelline New York Global Makeup Artist Erin Parsons created three different bold lip looks inspired by Fantasia. Parsons used the clothing collection’s bordeaux tones, bright colors and metallic fabrics to bring burgundy, red and pink lip looks to life.
