Alicia Czerwiec Design is an artistic and modern Boho lifestyle brand that focuses on apparel items full of pattern, print and solids that represent multi cultural and artistic perspective, and depth through pieces that are detail oriented in texture silhouette and color. A strong sense of style and character are vital. Combinations of prints, patterns, textures and rich colors make the style unique and noticeable.
Alicia Czerwiec designs for Bridge Market. Items would be seen selling alongside designers like Mary Katrovinski, Nanette Lepore and Etro. Designs would be sold in higher end retail stores like Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus and smaller specialty stores.
Designs have a classic and simple silhouette to balance the excessive combination of print, texture and color. Garments are designed to be able to be worn over multiple seasons and are rejuvenated through color, textile, surface design and detail. Alicia Czerwiec Design strives to take typical textiles and transform them through surface manipulation, embellishment, construction and deconstruction to create unique textiles and surface designs.
Aspirations of selling alongside designers like Mary Katrovinski, Nanette Lepore and Etro Alicia Czerwiec Design will be competitive with price points of designers as well. Construction and execution is impeccable. Vendors can expect price points that will satisfy their demand of high quality, hand stitching and designer appeal for stores like Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus and a few smaller specialty stores.
